Sean O’Malley also spoke to former UFC fighter turned BKFC brawler ‘Platinum’ Mike Perry. Coming off the biggest win of his combat sports career against Bellator MMA star Michael ‘Venom’ Page.
Following his win, Mike Perry called out YouTube turned professional boxer, Jake Paul. ‘Platinum’ also
“Not as far as him fighting me. It makes sense because in our reality, I’m a pro fighter with almost 30 professional fights. He’s not really up to par with me yet. He’s done well as the marketing standpoint goes. He’s doing his thing, but I got maybe too many fights. They don’t want to test themselves against someone that they can’t beat. You can’t f*cking beat me when you’re in the ring with me.”
While discussing the difference between training for a bare-knuckle fight versus a mixed martial arts bout, Mike Perry was asked if he still trains the same for both types of competition.
“Sometimes I go to the MMA gym and spar with some of the guys. A lot of the guys that you see in bare-knuckle come from that background so they have a lot of unorthodox striking styles. It’s not like a boxer versus boxer where they’re going to be really technical. They’re gonna fight you in the pocket, things like that. They’re gonna do weird stuff. So I’ll go to the MMA gym and try to work with guys and tell myself as someone who trains boxing so consistently now, I should be able to pick these guys apart.
“When I’m in my zone and feeling myself, I’ll hit these guys to the point where they start shooting takedowns or throwing kicks at me and I just take extra credit, you know what I mean? I’ll stuff a takedown. I still get a little extra work sometimes. I grappled once or twice since I started boxing, but I don’t like to grapple too much.”
With his victory at BKFC 27 in London, Mike Perry is now 2-0 inside the squared circle.
Sean O’Malley Reacts to Nate Diaz USADA Video Following Conversation with Mike Perry
Nate Diaz recently got the world’s attention, this time for smoking a joint while being visited by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, otherwise known as USADA.
Streamed on Instagram Live, the Stockton native appeared on camera smoking a blunt with a USADA representative in the background. In the clip, Nate Diaz can be seen offering the sample collector a hit which was declined. Nate Diaz also let everyone know exactly how he felt about USADA’s intrusion.
“This man won’t get out of my house because I didn’t give him enough piss,” Nate Diaz said. “I pissed all I can, my n****. How many liters do I do? I’ve got two more liters of piss I’ve got to give him and he won’t get out of here until [then]. DK is my guy but USADA can f*cking suck a d*ck. Come back in six hours, I’ll give you two more. Sorry DK.”
USADA is responsible for the results management process for UFC athletes, which includes informing athletes of the results of their drug tests and managing any potential anti-doping policy violations in accordance with the UFC Anti-Doping Policy.
“I wonder if Nate got in any trouble from that or what, but it’s like, the USADA people, they’re nice. Every time I’ve met them they’re so nice, but they’re f*cking annoying. I don’t want someone at my house right now. It’s 7 a.m., I’m laying asleep and the dogs are barking. I have to sh*t and they want me to p*ss.
“They’re always nice. Every USADA person I’ve met is super nice, it’s just f*cking annoying. I bet Nate probably just took a p*ss and he’s hanging with the boys and now this guy’s jus sitting there.”
