Gastelum Talks Social Media Feud With Mike Perry
After Mike Perry commented on his Facebook page that Ronaldo Souza was gonna choke him out at UFC 224, Kelvin Gastelum decided to try and friend request Perry.
It did not go over well…“What happened was, I woke up one day, and I went to check my Facebook,” Gastelum told reporters Wednesday.
“Then… I got a Mike Perry comment. I’m like ‘alright, I’m gonna check it,’ and it said ‘Jacare is going to strangle you.’ I’m like, alright, I didn’t reply, I didn’t ‘like’ it or anything. What I did was, I tried to mess with him just to see what he would do, and I sent him a friend request.”
Perry decided to put Gastelum on blast on Twitter, making social media a not-fun place for Gastelum for the past few days.

“I kind of feel like it backfired,” Gastelum admitted.
“I’ve learned that people will say anything online… to get you to respond to them. And many of those people are the saddest people on earth. I don’t pay any attention to it. Only sometimes when I want to have some fun. … I used to read the comments and think ‘oh my god, what are people thinking about me, what are they saying about me?’ But now it’s just like, I realize some of those people are the most saddest people on earth.”
