Mike Perry Hopes To Defeat Donald Cerrone, Buy A Boat, And Eye Gauge Colby Covington!
Mike Perry has quickly become one of the most popular UFC Welterweight fighters. Despite he was charged for burglary when he was younger, he is on the right track at the moment. He is also a protector. Remember how he defended Alex Nicholson due to racist comments made towards Hyun Gyu Lim at UFC 202. Platinum’s controversial spa-spar misunderstanding with Darren Till is one of the funniest things that ever happened in UFC.
His victory over Paul Felder showed his superb striking skills. Mike Perry is booked to fight Donald Cerrone on November 10, 2018, at UFC Denver. Donald Cerrone and Mike Perry were sparring partners since Perry moved to Jackson-Wink MMA Team this spring. They have a lot of respect for each other. They were also spending time together outside of training. In an interview with Submission Radio, Mike Perry told he wants to put Cowboy to sleep with a KO. (via bloodyelbow.com)
“Shit, let’s get this money. Let’s go,” Perry said of his willingness to fight Cerrone. “The guy was kind to me, but the UFC does what they want. They want to set up a fight. And I figured, shit, a year or two from now somebody from JacksonWink is probably going to be trying to fight me. So, it is what it is. We fight. The question is, do you want to get this money or not? Yeah, I need this money, so we fight. I fought his ass for free, I might as well fight his ass for a hundred grand.”
“I mean, I hope it’s as crazy if not crazier than the Felder fight,” he added, in giving his prediction for how this bout would go. “I hope I can get the finish though. I’m looking for the finish always. I’m gonna try to put my hands on his face and KO him. I’m not looking for a submission. If he gives up his neck I’m gonna try to reach for it and I’ll try and grab it, but I’m looking to hit him in the face and knock him unconscious in between one to three rounds. I don’t care when, just get the job done.”
Perry hopes to buy a boat if he defeats Donald Cerrone.
“He took me shooting guns, we went out on his boat and he took me surfing on his boat. That was really cool. Really nice of the guy,” Perry remembered, talking about the time he and Cerrone spent together. “And he’s like, ‘Wow, look at this asshole who’s gonna come fight me now and try and take everything I work for.’ But he’s had all of this and all this money, all this time, and we in the fight business. So, I’m trying to get a damn boat too. So, you got that money, you got the notoriety. I gotta get it, I gotta come take it so I get me a boat, so I go surfing when I want.”
After The Cowboy, Platinum sees two possible options – Darren Till or Colby Covington. He described the UFC Interim Welterweight champion as a superb wrestler and cardio machine. He believes Chaos is a master of pressure too. But Mike Perry plans to kick Covington’s ass if they meet. Even a thumb to the eye might come in handy!
“Colby Covington, technically he hasn’t been stripped yet,” Perry added, speaking about Tyron Woodley’s championship reign. “He doesn’t get stripped until they fight for the title. So, I mean, the guy’s got really good cardio. Actually, Darren Till had that so say about Colby. Colby runs in the mountains every day. This motherfucker has good cardio and he puts the pressure on people. He just leans on people. I feel like it’s not a very dangerous fight as far as getting injured, getting hurt, getting busted up by Colby, but his ability to lean up on you and stop you from using your game is strong. It’s strong. That’s why his wrestling background is good. You know, fuck him though. I’ll fucking cut his ass up. You wanna lean on me? You can’t just lay on me in a fight. I’m gonna fucking stab you in the eye with my thumb if I have to.”
Well, this is illegal move. But remember Jon Jones is a master of eye gauging, and he has never been disqualified for that. Let’s hope Dan Miragliotta won’t be the third man in the octagon! What are your thoughts, can Mike Perry teach Donald Cerrone a lesson? Would you like to see Colby Covington getting an eye poke?
