    The took a lot of criticism on here and everywhere else for trying to action off his corner seats for his fight, but that might be pure genius. Think about it.

    When the UFC has the corner mics on between rounds, most of the advice the corner give is completely stupid. Usually they're telling the fighter they won the round even when they didn't or when it could go either way. Remember Edmund telling Ronda Rousey, "Beautiful, Champ," while she was being made to look like an amateur against Holly Holm?

    When they do give actual strategy advice, the fighters never follow it. For example, in one of GSP's fights, master cornerman Greg Jackson was telling GSP "Hit him with your groin!" Did GSP hit him with his groin? No he did not. And that's just one of hundreds of examples. Case in point: cornermen are pretty worthless.

    So it seems that Mike Perry has been the only one to identify this, and not only that, but he's the first one to come up with the idea of turning it into cash. He may be the smartest man in MMA.

    That explains why he is on a winning streak.

    Lots of bad corner advice out there, but you picked a bad example. GSP told Greg that he pulled his groin, and greg answered "I don't care...Hit him with your groin!".It was not fight advice, it was pep talk.
    And calling Mike Perry smart is like calling a lottery millionaire a good businessman because he played the lottery. Also he seems to be a shit human being, which is why so many Sherbros love him.

    It’s not fair or accurate to say that most corners are no good. Edmund is a retard. I wish Greg Jackson was my dad

    To be fair, it was actually a pretty good idea from him especially considering how much you have to pay coaches and cornermen.

    I thought almost everyone said it was a clever idea.

    He had a pretty genius idea of selling off his corner, however the stupidity oozed out of him once he announced it for the world to see, Dana and the commission obviously wouldn't let that slide.

    Pretty sure the Baldfather put a nix on him auctioning off his corner, otherwise literally every fighter would do it. Bet your ass some people would pay stupid money to do it.

    A guy, with a face tatoo of his fighter nickname, who attacks old men in a restaurant? Yeah, no... Objectively, he's not the sharpest tool in the shed.
