UFC: Mike Perry Says He Would Beat ‘Weak Little F***’ Nate Diaz
Following his victory over Mickey Gall at UFC Vegas 4, Mike Perry has started hunting for his next opponent. The 28-year-old now holds a record of 14-6 and is not only looking for his next opponent but also a new team to train with.
Immediately after UFC Vegas 4, Perry said that he wanted to train with Yoel Romero, so that he could help him make the jump up to middleweight to fight Darren Till. Although ‘Platinum’ has his sights set on the Brit, perhaps he would settle for a welterweight clash with Nate Diaz and the ‘little weak-ass punches he’s got’.
“I think he’s a skinny, weak little f*** like Mickey Gall,” Perry said. “I mean, I respect what he’s done in the sport. He plays the guard game in jiu-jitsu, he thinks he can box with that little weak-ass punches he’s got, little salt and pepper punches. He doesn’t stand a chance to hit me hard enough. I’d hit him on the feet the same way Jorge Masvidal did. And I’d play his guard. I’d get half guard, sit on top of him, it’d look exactly the same as the Mickey Gall fight did, to be honest with you.
“If you guys like that fight, then yeah, you’ll probably like the Nate Diaz fight too. He’s a little more durable, he’ll probably try to stand there and box back with me. But my power punches, I’ll sit him down. Everybody knows he’s durable, so I’ll bust that eye open again. What can I say? That’s not hate”, Perry said. “That’s not me hating on Nate Diaz. He’s done things in the sport. He’s made money. Good for him, dude. I’ve always thought I’d beat that guy and it’s as simple as that. We’re talking about one on one, in the ring, fighting. And I win.”
