Fightful/Talking MMA Pick Em' For UFC Vegas 30

The love story of 2020 between UFC fighter Mike Perry and his girlfriend Latory Gonzalez has taken another positive turn as the pair have officially become parents for the very first time. UFC and MMA fans were first introduced to Perry's girlfriend when she was the only person in his corner when he fought Mickey Gall. That was the first time MMA fans were introduced to Gonzalez as she cornered her boyfriend to a win. Then, several months down the line after being in her boyfriend's corner against Mickey Gall, Gonzalez yet again cornered her boyfriend against UFC veteran Tim Means, this time she was heavily pregnant. Gonzalez and Perry have now welcomed their first child into the world.

Perry went on to detail the scary first moments of his son's life as he seemingly was born not breathing. Thankfully the ladies at Holtz Children's Hospital in Miami managed to get the baby boy breathing. Many congratulations to both Perry and Gonzalez.
