A welterweight bout between Mike Perry and Daniel Rodriguez kicked off today’s UFC Vegas 23 main card from Las Vegas, Nevada.

Perry (14-8 MMA) was returning to action for the first time since suffering a unanimous decision loss to Tim Means back in November of 2020. Prior to that setback, ‘Platinum‘ had earned a unanimous decision victory over Mickey Gall.

Meanwhile, Daniel Rodriguez (14-2 MMA) had entered today’s UFC Vegas 23 fight with Mike Perry in hopes of rebounding from his recent loss to Nicolas Dalby at UFC 255. That defeat had snapped a nine-fight winning streak for the man known as ‘D-Rod’.

Tonight’s UFC Vegas 23 main card welterweight bout proved to be a rather one-sided contest. Daniel Rodriguez was able to dominate Mike Perry in the standup department, battering ‘Platinum’ with a plethora of strikes. Although Perry did get the fight to the ground on two occasions, he couldn’t keep it there and thus ended up being heavily outpointed by Rodriguez.
