Only reason Mike Perry got promoted to a main card fight on a Fox card was because of the attention and views he was getting online. UFC signed Perry on 3 weeks notice to fight Lim at UFC 202, then he had a Fight Pass Prelim fight against Danny Roberts on an International PPV event. The UFC was not trying to push this guy like they were Paige and Northcutt, or even McGregor. Only reason they gave him the slot on last nights card was because of the views on his Youtube videos and ridiculous number of threads people made about him on Sherdog, the Underground, etc. Whether the majority of the attention was tongue-in-cheek or not doesn't really matter, a guy who garners attention and knocks people out will be promoted no matter how green he is. Hopefully the UFC pulls back the reigns and build him up slowly, the guy definitely as potential if he gets his head screwed on right.
