UFC welterweight Mike Perry took to social media Thursday to share an old video of a highlight - but it wasn't from the Octagon.

The clip captured an altercation between Perry and another man, which appeared to take place outside a club that "Platinum" says was in Orlando. It shows Perry knocking the man out cold with a left hook.

Goin to the beach boy ! #Tbt #ViralChallenge #YOLO He’d actually just punched me in the mouth. (Why do you think they started recording) I created space, he followed with his fists balled. As I stepped into position around the girl he either flinched or got distracted from what his drunk ass was doing which was harassing me. He wouldn’t stop so I ended it. I threw the jab/hook split seconds before he looked to the left. I could’ve continued to ground and pound him to death but walked away and spoke to the police. For any of you acting like you’ve ever done anything for me please believe you play with fire you’re gonna get burned. If you can mind your space and social distance yourself from my personal bubble than anything can be resolved through conversation. Judge me all you want you bunch of cry to get your way hypocrite’s but I live an honest life and am the most truthful person I know. I share my life with all of you watching so please believe if you feel like you want to butt into anything you were not involved in than you, yo mama, yo daddy, yo wife, husbands, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and grandma’s and grandpa’s can get these pro fighter hands too since it’s ok to hit me but not ok when I hit back. Check yo selves !

Perry wrote in the caption that the man, whom Perry believed to be intoxicated, was harassing him and had "punched me in the mouth" just before the video began.

"He wouldn’t stop so I ended it," Perry wrote. "I could’ve continued to ground-and-pound him to death but walked away and spoke to the police."

In an interview with TMZ Sports in December 2017, Perry described an altercation that lines up with the video. The 28-year-old said the incident occurred on New Year's Eve, but he did not say which year.

Perry is coming off a first-round TKO loss to Geoff Neal at UFC 245 last December. He is 6-6 in the promotion and boasts wins over Paul Felder, Alex Oliveira, and Jake Ellenberger.
