Mike Perry: 'I scare these guys away'

 

UFC.com's Matt Parrino got in a few words with Mike Perry at the Fight Night Pittsburgh open workouts, where they discussed his status as a co-headliner for this event:

Perry was good natured about his last minute change in opponent, understanding that sometimes it's the nature of the fight business, but admitted maybe it's him:
