The UFC held its big Athlete Retreat over the past weekend at their sexy new big deal sports compound, and social media has been full of fighters goofing off with each other and having a nice time on their employer's dime.
Alas, there were some hiccups. Cris Cyborg pulled more headlines than Kobe by punching Angela Magana in the face (watch it here), and it turns out 'Platinum' Mike Perry got into a scuffle with Jeremy Stephens when Stephens allegedly got up on his girl. Via BJPenn.com:
“I pushed Jeremy Stephens to the ground,” he said. “We were at the Snoop Dogg concert. Cris ‘Cyborg’ had punched that one girl in the face on the second day. On the first night, they got between a couple of fighters, but they didn’t even touch each other. But, then Jeremy Stephens tried to dance up on my girl, and he knew it was my girl. It was at the end of the night. Snoop had already come out, and I had been killing it, dancing with my girl all night. Jeremy Stephens walks up on her, and mid hip-thrust, as he was about to maybe make contact with her body, I pushed that mother fucker hard as I could, double-hand to his chest, and he fell on the ground. He was mad as hell, but he didn’t do shit. He was trying to be a dick, but he’s 145 pounds, he doesn’t want these problems,” Perry continued. “Who the fuck is that guy, bro?”
That's a solid throwback to Conor McGregor's infamous Stephens diss last summer, just another sign Perry is taking that drunk Budweiser guy's helpful Athlete Retreat advice, "Be yourself, be McGregor!"
And I hate to admit it, but this does kinda make me want to see Jeremy and 'Platinum' throw down. Who cares about the two weight class difference! Instead, why don’t you ask yourself W.W.C.M.D?
