Fans joked Perry’s wedding picture will now be ruined

As the two welterweight fighters fell to the canvas, a stream of blood poured from Perry’s Z-shaped nose .

Luque, 27, his chest all red, still desperately tried to submit him with a front choke.

But the Michigan-born hero resisted his rival’s final push and it was down to the judges to choose the winner.

They scored 29-28, 28-29, 29-28 in favour of Luque, even though Perry, 27, landed more shots in an extremely close bout.

But despite missing out on a victory by the finest of margins, it is the American brawler who will now be remember for one of the nastiest nose injuries ever suffered.

UFC president Dana White paid tribute to Perry and shared a picture of his massacred face on social media following the fight.

And although some Twitter users jokes his wedding picture will now be ruined, most of them were quick to hail the Michigan warrior.

One wrote: “That man deserves a raise boss. A true asset for the company.”

While another added: “Win or lose Perry is a f***ing warrior and entertainer.”

A third said: “Pay him all the monies! He won that fight.”
