    35 years old, with his best performances coming against Gonzaga and Tybura.

    Why do people talk about him like he's a KO machine?

    He is Heavyweight Mike Perry.

    Fun to watch. But no danger to the top of the division.

    And both are allowed to use the N word.

    He's a funny guy who has serious KO power and is always in the fight

    Technically he's not great, but he still KOed Volkov who's better in practically every aspect

    Rogan wants to jerk him off every time Lewis makes a move.

    Very Over-hyped.

    I don't think he's over hyped at all. No one has really taken him as a serious top Hw his entire career and it's been said that HW is weak based on someone like Lewis being top 5 and a contender. He's had a good UFC career.....14-5 with some good wins, Volkov, Nelson, Gonzaga, Browne. Last guy to beat Nganou.

    He’s definitely not one of the top heavyweight fighters in the world.

    He’s really just a tough fat guy from Texas that dabbles in MMA. He said himself, he was smoking a lot of weed this week before the fight.

    That’s how weak the heavyweight division is in MMA these days.

    I think he's somewhat underrated. His record is pretty good. He got defeated by Mark Hunt and JDS when I thought he was gonna defeat them both, though.

    because the entire divisions trash and he gets wins. keep in mind the champ is 37 and has a 2nd job.
