Mike Perry spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Jake Ellenberger at UFC Fight Night 108. Some highlights are below:

On learning from his loss to Alan Jouban: “Chief thing that I took out of that is that I am a mixed martial artist, which means that I can do everything. I have many weapons. It’s all there, but in 15 minutes, to put it all in one fight, that’s the hard task.”

On going in hard against Ellenberger: “I’m going to keep the action flowing. I can’t stand in there too long without trying to take somebody’s head off.”

On his plan for the fight: “I’m going to touch him when I want, and I’m going to make him think I don’t have what it’s going to take to hurt him. And then when he steps in that target zone, I’m going to hit him with the hardest shot he’s ever been hit with…I’m going to do things that haven’t been done before, and you can’t do that unless you’re using your imagination. So, I’m going to stay young in the mind, but experienced as well.”
