Ailin Perez had 2 battles today.
On Saturday, Perez won a consentaneous choice over Lucie Pudilova on the initial card of UFC Vegas 82Prior to that triumph, Perez likewise had a run in at the UFC PI as she informed press reporters after the battle that the black eye she was sporting into the cage came from a run-in she had on battle week.
“So, basically I’m somebody similar to everybody else. I do not have an issue personally with anybody,” Perez stated at her post battle press scrum (h/t Mixed martial arts Mania. “What I did was I mentioned my viewpoint online about the battle. I didn’t disrespect anybody; I didn’t discuss about anybody. This unimportant woman came up to me after I was opinionated about one of her battles, simply talking about the efficiency that she did. And she pertained to attack me. She did attack me with the objective to make me take out of my battle, however I’m sorry, she did not accomplish it. I won and combated no matter the attack that happened.
“I wish to thank my coach, who existed at the time of the attack, since if it wasn’t for him, I would have had much even worse injuries due to the fact that he had the ability to take her off me when she was attacking me,” Perez continued. “And the battle most likely would have been off if it wasn’t for my coach, who conserved me.”
While Perez did not particularly call the fighter who assaulted her, the fighter in concern is fellow UFC bantamweight Joselyne EdwardsEdwards likewise provided MMA Mania a declaration about the event, though her variation varies quite starkly from the one Perez used.
“While we were battling, her coach assaulted me from behind. He was strangling me so that Ailin would strike me,” Edwards composed. “Her coach assaulted me. I virtually needed to battle 2 of them. He did not safeguard anybody, he began the battle, he was the one who warmed things so that the battle would occur, and after that he assaulted me and was strangling me. Later on, when they had actually currently separated me from Ailin, he was still strangling me and did not wish to let me go. He never ever separated the battle; he assaulted me while she assaulted me.”
And er a 3rd account of the scenario, Edwards’ side of the story seems more real. Mixed Martial Arts Manager Alex Davis saw the entire scene and declares that Perez’s coach, Javier Oyarzabal, did more than pull Edwards off Perez, he tried to choke her unconscious before he was stopped.
“I was resting on the big octagon within the P.I. taking a look at my phone when I heard shouting to my right,” Davis informed MMAMania.com. “When I approached the cage, I saw Ailin and her coach on top of Joselyne, so leapt in to separate the battle. When I went to assist and saw the male coach choking Joselyne with a rear-naked choke, and it was extremely deep– he was cranking on the choke. If the choke was hung on for a lot longer, it would have been an awful scene.
“I’m uncertain if she was totally unconscious, however she was close,” Davis continued. “When I got the coach off of Joselyne, the coach was ranting and screaming, attempting to continue to battle. I was attempting to relax Joselyne down due to the fact that she believed she was still combating.”
Edwards is 4-3 in the UFC and most just recently lost to Nora Cornolle at UFC Paris in September. With her win over Pudilova on Saturday, Perez relocated to 2-1 in the UFC. There is presently no info on whether either fighter will deal with effects for the run-in.
