Danielle Nickerson promised that she had some concerning stories to share about her ex-husband, UFC welterweight Mike Perry. These stories have come out, and are rather disturbing to hear. Perry and Nickerson had a rather public relationship, at least in terms of the MMA community. They were regularly seen arm-in-arm, or with her in his corner during his UFC fights. Although they broke up, it seemed amicable at first, however Danielle recently suggested that there had been some instances of abuse in their relationship, that she was looking to make public. https:\/\/www.instagram.com\/p\/B3ilJ4HF7hh\/?igshid95e3gf41aacu Danielle Nickerson Alleges Mike Perry Broke Her Ribs It should be noted that before Danielle Nickerson made her full accusations public against Mike Perry, he issued a statement denying any sort of abuse. However a report came out shortly after this, in which the full details of her allegations emerged. Right off the bat though, she wanted to make it clear that her telling her side of the story is not with the intention to have him reprimanded by the UFC. \u201cThis is nothing to hurt him,\u201d Nickerson said. \u201cI know that my words are not going to have an impact on his career. \u201cThis is not (something UFC president Dana White will see) and be like, \u2018He\u2019s cut.\u2019 There\u2019s no way. I don\u2019t have that sort of impact. This is not for that,\u201d Nickerson said. \u201cThis is for helping others. This is for getting the word out there about what you can do to help people in a domestic violence situation and the warning signs and how to not get this deep into something. Hopefully this will be something that pushes the UFC into doing more checks on their heads and brain damage and really taking care of them physically.\u201d That being said, Danielle Nickerson goes on to share a variety of situations, seemingly starting after Perry's first knockout loss, against Geoff Neal. There were times that she said he seemed out of control, often exasperated by alcohol. However there was one time in particular that seemed worse than others. They were out at a bar after a basketball game, with Mike already being rather intoxicated, when things got heated between he and a female patron at the bar. After they got kicked out, Nickerson tried to smooth things over with Mike, when he was driving recklessly and angrily, before he told her to get out of the car. She said that he came back around and told her to get in again, but when she told him that she was going to drive, he got out of the car, tackled her to the ground while acting like he would hit her, before getting up and speeding off in the car again. \u201cAfter that, I was nervous, so I called his friend that we were just with,\u201d Nickerson said. \u201cAnd I was like, \u2018Hey, I don\u2019t know what to do, because he just threw me in someone\u2019s yard, he just ran a red light and is acting absurd more than ever. I don\u2019t know if I can handle him when I get home, and I don\u2019t know what to do, so can you please help me?'\u201d From there, Danielle alleges that Mike was furious at the sight of his friend with her, walking through the door. She told the friend to leave and went to the bathroom to gather herself. When she got out, she claims that Perry charged at her, tackling her to the ground, before violently assaulting her, breaking her rib. \u201cHe had his knee on my belly and just ground-and-pounded me until he got tired,\u201d Nickerson said. \u201cI did a decent job of covering my face. I still had hematomas on the back of my head. My entire right side from my entire arm, my legs, my ribs, everything was covered in bruises the next few days. He just got all of his anger out on me, and on the last punch I clearly \u2013 I think that\u2019s why he stopped, is we heard my rib crack. He knew and sat back, and I think he was just tired \u2013 tired of hitting me so much.\u201d https:\/\/www.instagram.com\/p\/B5n-D4WFTBT\/?igshidfyh0b2284mbl Mike Perry's Mom Calls 911 This was not the end of the horrific night for Danielle Nickerson. Fearing for her life, she ran to a neighbor's house, where she used Facebook Messenger to get ahold of Mike's mother, who picked her up and took Danielle to her house. Perry apparently followed them there, making threats and revving his engine. Therefore Mike's mom was left with no choice but to call the police. Audio of this phone call was obtained and you can hear Perry's mother say that she fears for her life. https:\/\/youtu.be\/EutfK0JOdqg Before the police could arrive, he had already left the scene. Because no arrest was made, no formal report was filed on the situation. Danielle Nickerson Tries Moving On Now that the two are finally separated, Danielle Nickerson is trying to help other women who have been in similar positions to herself. She is aware that a portion of these issues was not the fault of Mike Perry, and that his anger issues could very well be a product of too much brain trauma. \u201cIf anyone\u2019s ever watched his fights, you know that he gets hit a lot, and it\u2019s entertaining whether he wins or loses, because he just goes forward,\u201d Nickerson said. \u201cThat\u2019s a lot on your head and your brain. Obviously he had never been knocked out before that. Once that happened, it was like a light switch changed. And that was scary.\u201d That being said, nowadays Nickerson has begun working to help others get past situations like the ones that she has found herself in. She has started working with BetterHelp.com, which helps to provide affordable virtual therapy to domestic violence survivors. She also started an Instagram page where she can provide similar services. \u201cIt\u2019s just a safe place for us to talk and have daily affirmations of something positive,\u201d Nickerson said. \u201cI\u2019m constantly sending them things, just positive reinforcement \u2013 if they need help, that sort of thing. I\u2019m by no means a professional. I can only speak from the experiences I\u2019ve been through. \u201cI think it\u2019s nice to have some sort of community, especially when you\u2019re going through something, and you just need somebody to talk to, and maybe you can\u2019t afford therapy, or you don\u2019t want to go, and it\u2019s too much of a commitment. This is something. I just want to help anybody who\u2019s been in my situation or is currently going through it. If I can help one person get away from that, that\u2019s my life\u2019s work. I\u2019m thrilled.\u201d At the end of the day, and without any sort of criminal charges officially filed against Mike Perry, there is no way to definitively say what is true or not. However even if only half of the picture that Danielle Nickerson paints is accurate, it paints an extremely concerning image of the UFC welterweight.
