With both the Diaz and McGregor crews being banned from attending, the UFC 202 weigh-ins without a hitch for the most part. Nate Diaz looked disdainful of the whole experience, Conor McGregor flinched, both #RoganFace and #DanaFace were on full display….pretty much your standard night at the park, overall.
Before the evening’s main eventers hit the scales, however, something…interesting did transpire in the staredown between promotional newcomer Mike Perry and welterweight striker Hyun Gyu Lim. After weighing in at 169 and 171 pounds, respectively, for their main card clash, Perry extended a hand to Lim in an apparent show of respect for the South Korean knockout artist. As Lim went to reach in, however, he was given the ol’ “oops, too slow!” from Perry, who then proceeded to shout “Bring it!” as if unaware that the fight was not actually scheduled until the following evening.
It was quite possibly the most embarrassingly lame move ever pulled at a weigh-in, with even Joe Rogan sarcastically pointing out that “that was a first” before likely hiding his head in shame.
Understandably, the Twittersphere has been raking Perry over the coals for his act of incredible douchebaggery.
