    The guy isn't exceptional anywhere. He has good power but his technical striking isn't that good and he certainly isn't a wrestling phenom or a BJJ wiz. He's not a TMA master either.

    He's basically your typical club fighter who made it to a higher level due to athleticism. Jack of all trades, master of none type of deal.

    The only thing he really has going for him is brute strength and raw power, but like we saw in the Jouban fight, a good striker has no problem neutralizing that.

    Does anyone truly believe that he will go far, when you have strikers like Masvidal and Wonderboy in the division?

    He has lots of tats and hits hard. Instant Sherdog favorite.

    His bjj and TDD are both very underrated. He uses those tools defensively and his Muay Thai and boxing offensively. This is kind of a dumb thread. There is plenty of well rounded skills to notice from Perry. Yea, a technical striker is probably his most dangerous opponent. But he can beat guys like that too. Calling him a brawler is kind of dumb, cause that was a very technical clinch and knee and elbow he destroyed jake and alex with

    At least Cody Garbrandt has legit boxing skills.

    Cody is a REAL "black belt with these hands" who has tats and hits hard.

    Perry is very...... meh.

    Bangs and is entertaining...pretty much it in terms of what he is good at.

    I seriously doubt his ability hang with top tier guys but I am interested to see if he can. Maybe his chin is good too.

    I liked the short elbow but this new fight wasn't gonna be impressive no matter what he did considering his opponent...

    He's decent, don't get me wrong, but I don't see him getting anywhere near the top 5...

    Nothing wrong with that though. There's fighters like Cowboy who are actually great fighters that can never seem to reach the top.

    Perry's alright, I just don't like hypetraims because I'm fairly certain he'll never reach the top.

    His haircut, his accent and his eyebrow tattoo are all exceptional.

    He has a few tools that are very strong and difficult for most opponents to deal with. Once people figure out how to make it out of the first round, he'll have to make some pretty big adjustments.

    He's an exceptional fighter though.

    Sisko kicks his ass, then makes some Cajun food to celebrate.

    He is a douchebag (which can be funny, depending on your mood on the given day), but his fights are entertaining, and he does have some skills.

    His fan community is basically a parody to nuthugger fanbases on this forum.

    He is powerful and decently exciting but I doubt he will ever get near the gold. Robbie probably destroys the hype train again unless he is completely shot now.
