Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Earlier than we get to the most recent in Mike Perry Insanity, enable me to disclose a little bit of behind-the-scenes data about Midnight Mania. Most days, I put collectively the physique of the publish within the afternoon. Nonetheless, I wait till an hour or two earlier than midnight to seek out the lead story, simply in case something significantly urgent goes down at 11:30 P.M.

Tonight, I’m scouring the MMA world for any information that has but to make its strategy to our entrance web page. There’s a quote from Antonio Rogerio Nogueira about retiring after his rubber match with “Shogun” Rua. That’s one thing, but in addition hardly a shock given “Lil Nog” is roughly 95 years previous. Actually, the overwhelming majority of potential headlines had been all shockingly weird Mike Perry quotes from in the present day’s media interviews, most of that are unrelated to one another.

With out additional ado, listed here are the very best/craziest Perry statements of the final 24 hours:

On Desired Nook Recommendation From His Girlfriend
“Peace and quiet to listen to [Gall’s] nook. I don’t ever hear nothing of worth, bro… Possibly I’m not listening or one thing however I simply really feel like, ‘OK, if I ain’t going to hear anyhow, why the f— ought to they be right here and get any of the credit score?’” (CBS Sports activities)

“I believe I’m the one with expertise, and I understand how it ought to go. I simply wish to really feel good. She’s going to be there to really feel good, make me look good. If it even goes to the second spherical, it’s as a result of I would like her to have time to speak to me within the nook. I would like her to provide me a kiss and inform me to go get ‘em.” (MMAFighting)

On Motivation
“[Latory Gonzalez] is new motivation, the very best motivation and the motivation I’ve been on the lookout for my entire life. What does a man combat for? Deep down, the animalistic options we have now say that ‘if I might beat that man and chunk his neck earlier than he bites mine, I get to take the gorgeous lady residence.’” (CBS Sports activities)

On Critics
“I’m pleased with telling all you losers to go f*ck yourselves,” he stated (MMAFighting). “It makes me blissful. I won’t essentially be speaking to you. If that offends you, you should be a loser. You should be going to f*ck your self, as a result of if it doesn’t pertain to you, then it shouldn’t have an effect on you, proper?”

On Journalists
“As a result of I’ll beat your ass, that’s why,” Perry stated (CBS Sports activities). “You run your mouth and I’ll beat your ass. You’re a journalist, you ain’t going to do shit to me. I’ll punch you within the mouth and get away with it.”

On Mentality
“I watched quite a lot of episodes of ‘Naruto’. I watched the entire three seasons of the ‘Avatar The Airbender’. That was good for psychological coaching. I walked round Common Studios and Islands of Journey.” (MMAJunkie)

So, uh, there you could have it. We must always absolutely count on Mike Perry to Naruto-run his strategy to the Octagon on Saturday, pummel Mickey Gall, after which assault no matter poor soul tries to interview him post-fight.

Sounds pay-per-view (PPV) worthy!

There’s positively an artwork to checking kicks. Merely lifting the leg — because the fighter does under — typically turns a kick to the thigh right into a calf kick, which is maybe much more devastating. Turning the shin/knee to face the kick is important!
