Pic: Mike Perry X-ray reveals no broken bones following ‘Cowboy’ submission, but MRI still to come

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight tribal chief, Mike Perry, claimed UFC Fight Night 139 opponent, Donald Cerrone, “broke his damn arm” during their 170-pound co-main event last weekend in Denver, Colorado.

Not the case.

Perry revealed his post-fight X-ray on Tuesday, courtesy of his Instagram stories, showing no broken bones; however, “Platinum” still has to undergo an MRI to determine ligament, tendon, or muscle damage — or perhaps a combination of the three.

Have a look:

Watch Perry tap to the armbar here.

Perry (12-4) ended his 2017 fight campaign with a unanimous decision loss to Santiago Ponzinibbio, then failed to get any momentum going in 2018, putting together a 1-2 record and looking outmatched in the process.

His submission loss to Cerrone marked the first time he’s been finished in his combat sports career. I guess they didn't cover that in Perry’s new home at Jackson-Winkeljohn MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
