UFC's Mike Perry says he's only got $6 in the bank despite fight check

Mike Perry exited a UFC on ESPN event in Uruguay with one of the gnarliest nose injuries you will ever see, but he at least had the consolation of, well, being a professional athlete who had just made thousands of dollars for a night of work.

As it turns out, Perry might not be doing so well in the financial department either.

Days after his bloody loss to Vicente Luque on Saturday, Perry took to Instagram to complain about apparent financial struggles despite what figured to be a decent fight check for a co-main event bout and another check for earning “Fight of the Night” honors with Luque.

Publishing an Instagram story that was captured by LowKick MMA and taken down hours later, Perry posted a graphic that showed him supposedly making $117,000 for the fight. Perry disagreed with the figure, saying “My a-- I didn’t make that much smh.”

In another post, Perry went into detail about how much money he claimed to make Saturday and how much he supposedly has now:

58 to show

Uruguay took 17

Management and team 15%

Still got last years taxes

Nose job priceless

Money in the bank $6.00

400k fans on IG tho.”

So basically, Perry is saying he made $58,000 from the fight, with $17,000 going to Uruguayan taxes, 15 percent ($8,700) going to his management and fight team. That would still leave around $32,300, but that is now apparently going to cover Perry’s tax bill from last year.

Of course, the $6 line is quite interesting because Perry, who has had legal troubles in the past, has been making these kind of UFC checks for a while. Saturday was the 27-year-old’s 11th UFC event, and the fourth time he’s won a bonus check for Fight or Performance of the Night.

You have to wonder where all of that past revenue might have gone or how much Perry might be exaggerating his troubles, but he probably isn’t going into detail anytime soon
I'm so fucking high.

I’d imagine that a lot of fighters are broke. Perry just happens to have the balls to say it and a large enough audience to make it a story. They make shit money :x

Fighting is tough enough without the broke part but I guess they all love Dana so much they are hoping to be the next McGregor. When are the UFC fighters going to wake up?

He's telling it like it is. However we all pay taxes on whatever we make. Also if he didn't pay last years taxes he probably enjoyed himself last year.

add up all his fight night bonuses and how much he gets paid per fight then come back and let us know.Sounds more like he doesn't know how to budget is money or pay his taxes because he's an idiot.

That, and is that his only source of income? He hasn't flipped any of that into outside sponsorships? Real estate? Clothing? Shit, even supplements? Being as notorious as you are, or are trying to be...you ain't trying to use that to your advantage?

Hopefully I'm not the only one that realized Mike had to stay in Uruguay for his nose surgery and hadn't had a chance to deposit his UFC check yet...? :idea:

Ok is it just me or is it ironic that Perry's nose looked like a 6 when it was broken?

Doesn’t the UFC cover medical expenses related to training and fighting?

I think the new Caveman isn’t telling us the entire story.

Taxes from LAST YEAR don’t factor into current paydays. If he owes taxes from last year, that’s his fault, nobody else’s.

Who goes to a foreign nation with $6 in their bank account?
