One & Done? ‘Michelle’ Perry Teases ‘Last UFC Fight’

He’s also not a Tribal Chief, but that never stopped him from playing the part.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) could be saying goodbye to longtime welterweight fan favorite, Mike Perry, but before he goes, he’s got his eyes on a couple of “white belts” in the form of Mickey Gall and Curtis Millender.

Assuming either of them can be ready by May.

“So first Mickey Gall talks shit on Thanksgiving while driving his Honda Accord to his pot dealers house (illegal but they leave him cuz he smoke reggie),” Perry wrote on Instagram. “And the worst part about a fight with Curtis Millender is he looks at me like I’m a pretty white girl named Michelle.”

Perry (12-4) is hoping to rebound from his submission loss to Donald Cerrone at UFC Denver last November (replay). After jumping out to an 11-1 start to his professional mixed martial arts (MMA) career, “Platinum” is just 1-3 dating back to late 2017.

Which is why he’s hoping to go out with a bang.

“It is not my decision which of these board the pain train I plan to roll in on,” he continued. “It is YOURS! THE PEOPLE! I was thinking a third mystery option rather than the two UFC whitebelts I just mentioned. Maybe a famous Brazilian out of respect for the country, the sport and all my jitsu brothers here at home. Can you think of who you would want to see me risk my beautiful face against in what could be my LAST UFC fight!”

Famous Brazilian? Jiu-jitsu? I’m thinking Demian Maia, which is probably a one-way ticket to the sub way. Unless you, the “Platinum” fans, have other ideas?

Here’s Mike Perry Dropping His Girlfriend In Sparring

The video is affectionately titled, “Platinum Punishment.”

Having watched Mike Perry prance around in a Native American war bonnet, ululating and promising to smash “Cowboy” Cerrone for his crimes against humanity, I realized that “Platinum” is the type of guy who is going to do whatever the heck he wants.

To whoever the heck he wants.

That includes his longtime girlfriend, Danielle Nickerson, who had some pretty mean things to say about UFC welterweight Alan Jouban, further establishing that she is probably the right person to be dating Perry at this point in his life.

In fact, she didn’t seem too bothered that “Platinum” dropped her at the end of their training session. And hey, I’m all for tough love (and hard sparring) but there was something unnerving about his promise to “fuck her up” following a glove malfunction.

Hey, at least it wasn’t this D-bag.

Perry (12-4), who has 11 knockouts in 12 wins, is currently unbooked at this time, but is expected to return to the Octagon in the coming weeks, presumably against someone of the same gender.

UFC Fight Night 139 Results: Cowboy Doesn’t Get Killed, Instead Taps out Mike Perry

Every moment we get with Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone where he’s not unconscious is a moment to cherish. And that’s just what we got in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 139.

Years ago, Cowboy would’ve been immune to the threats posed by an overpowered slugger. But the passage of time, and the eating of many knuckles had made Cerrone mortal – and few can test the limits of mortality like Mike Perry. So yeah, it was a little scary that old man Cerrone was going to face Perry in the UFC’s Denver event last night. Because Perry may not be a world-beater, but he’s really good at punching dudes unconscious. What would that mean for our beloved Cowboy?

Thankfully, the man with about 800 UFC fights on his record dodged Perry’s efforts to decapitate him, and after clinching and trading knees, the fight eventually went to the ground. And though Perry was on top, hunting for a chance to put his fist through Cowboy’s skull, instead came an armbar from the man on the bottom. Perry tried to escape, but was soon forced to tap.

I would say the good guy won, except Perry was totally a gentleman before, during and after the fight. I guess it’s hard to have bad blood against a dude as cool as Cowboy.

Midnight Mania! Mike Perry Calls Woodley ‘My N****’, Woodley Doesn’t Care

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

So… Mike Perry is really excited to be able to say the N-word. He posted this tweet after going live with welterweight champion Tyron Woodley on Instagram. Perry, who says the N-word is in his vocabulary from growing up in Flint, Michigan, recently took a DNA test that found 2% sub-saharan African genetics. He says this gives him a pass to use the word.

Woodley, though? He doesn’t mind. He thinks it’s funny. He did take some time to explain the difference between a racially-motivated slur and Perry’s use of the word… it’s evident from the reference to the recent Kendrick Lamar concert that they don’t completely agree on the use of the word.

Woodley, who is from Ferguson, Missouri, has previously pointed out discrepancies in treatment from fans and the UFC due to his race.

It shouldn’t need to be said, but hundreds of years of an American racial caste system, only officially ended fifty years ago, is the reason the n-word is considered an extremely offensive racial slur. As a current resident of the American South, I can confirm that, contrary to what I naively believed growing up, plenty of white people still hold the same deeply racist views towards black people their parents held. And, of course, the socio-economic status of black people has never caught up to white people, who have a median net worth 10 times that of black families.

Perry, a professional fighter, is right that most people won’t do anything when he uses the word. That approach is not recommended for the average white person. Don’t try this at home, kids.

Cub Swanson vs. Renato Moicano is a fantastic fight and a deserved crack at a big name opponent for Moicano.

Mark Hunt vs. Aleksei Oleinik, after Werdum was suspended for his USADA test fail, has McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh asking the pressing questions.

This is pretty sweet T-shirt design by TJ Dillashaw and Boss Logic.
