A video has surfaced appearing to show a UFC star punching an older man at a restaurant following some type of previous altercation.
Mike Perry, 28, allegedly punched an older man in the face at a Texas restaurant. Video of the incident has gone viral on social media.
“Perry and his GF were leaving Table 82 restaurant in Lubbock, TX while arguing with staffers and other patrons,” TMZ Sports reports.
The video shows Perry arguing with several people before stopping toward the front of the restaurant. He appeared to be upset at the fact that someone had touched him earlier in the evening.
An older man then attempts to intervene. He appeared to make a lunge at Perry, who throws a punch and drops him.
