Mike Perry is justifiably headed to the sidelines for quite some time following his gruesome nose injury last weekend.

Perry took on surging welterweight Vicente Luque in the co-main event of Saturday’s (August 10, 2019) UFC Uruguay. It was a rousing, violent bout that ultimately saw Luque take home a split decision win. As he always does, ‘Platinum’ fought his heart out, however. Perry suffered an absolutely horrific broken nose for which he underwent successful surgery following the event.

Perry’s manager Abraham Kawa promptly revealed that he had some other fractures in his nose he needed to get clean up. He was given a six-month ban on all contact involving his nose. Not surprisingly, Perry also received a 180-day ban from the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA), who regulated UFC Uruguay.

Two other fighters were also given 180-day sits. Longtime women’s strawweight veteran Tecia Torres received one pending an x-ray of her left forearm following her loss to Maria Rodriguez. Geraldo de Freitas got the same amount pending an x-ray of his nose following his loss to Chris Gutierrez.

In the UFC Uruguay main event, UFC women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko controlled Liz Carmouche for five rounds in another dominant title defense. “Bullet” received only a 14-day suspension for the fight, while Carmouche was suspended for 30 days.
