UFC 226 Media Day Faceoffs: Mike Perry Gets Vocal (Video)

The UFC 226 media day faceoffs are in the books and of course Mike Perry made the most noise.

Earlier today (July 5), the UFC held a media day session in Las Vegas. Most fighters on the card spoke to the media about their upcoming bouts this Saturday night. UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic and light heavyweight title holder Daniel Cormier didn’t partake in the festivities. The same can be said for Francis Ngannou and Derrick Lewis. All four fighters will instead attend the UFC 226 pre-fight press conference later tonight.

That doesn’t mean the faceoffs weren’t intense. Michael Chiesa showed a great deal of confidence when he stared down Anthony Pettis. Perry was quite vocal when he went face-to-face with Paul Felder. The two have been promoted to the main card following Max Holloway’s injury.
