Known for his fan-friendly brawling style, all but two of Daniel Rodriguez's career wins have come by way of judges' decision.
Rodriguez won via a second-round submission with a guillotine choke and earned a performance of the night bonus for the upset triumph.
Mike Perry is Daniel Rodriguez's biggest opponent so far
Daniel Rodriguez's potential opponent Mike Perry is a staple of UFC's welterweight division. A mid-tier fighter with a never-ending appetite for violence, Perry is the perfect B-side for Rodriguez to put on a fire-cracker for fans.
Perry's leave-it-all-in-the-Octagon attitude has made him a must-watch performer among hardcore fans. He is a tough nut to crack and remains a big test for any fighter. Mike Perry's last fight was against Tim Means at UFC 255, losing via unanimous decision.
Both Mike Perry and Daniel Rodriguez are coming off a loss in their previous fights. While a win over Rodriguez would only put Mike Perry back in the win column, the former would gain a lot of momentum and bigger fights with a victory.
