UFC welterweight Mike Perry proved many doubters wrong with his last win over Mickey Gall at “UFC on ESPN 12”.
Perry got the W via UD and the most impressive thing was the fact his girlfriend was the only person in his corner.
ESPN’s Brett Okamoto asked Perry during a post-fight interview if he would consider training with the Diaz brothers in California because they share a “similar philosophy.” Perry says he is open to working with others, but for a different motive.
“I kind of want to work with Yoel Romero,” he said. “I want to get some beef inside of myself to feel that 185-pound weight class. I want to learn how to fight one of the best guys there so that I could fight a middleweight Englishman. You know what I’m saying, you know who I’m talking about.
“I want to fight that guy, he doesn’t deserve to have his name come out of my mouth. He’s a despicable person.”
The American is talking, of course, about Britain’s Darren Till. The trash-talking between the two has been upped in recent months with Till building a whole website called www.mikeperryisabum.com
