Mike Perry and Darren Till are at it again after Perry set up an auction for being his cornerman in the fight against former champion Robbie Lawler at UFC 255. The Liverpool-born Welterweight offered to pay $5,000 to represent Perry as his cornerman.
But in typical Darren Till fashion, he asked the fans on Twitter how much they will pay him to throw the towel in. Mike Perry was just cornered by his girlfriend Latory Gonzalez in his last fight.
Perry, not one to take things lying down, shared an image of Darren Till being knocked out by Jorge Masvidal (before his cornermen could throw-in the towel). Funnily enough, Perry also got a bid from adult actress Kendra Lust to corner him for his fight.
The Darren Till and Mike Perry saga continues
Darren Till and Mike Perry have been at each other's throats since their altercation in 2017. However, with Till moving up a weight class into the Welterweight division, a potential bout seems unlikely at this point.
Till lost an intense battle against former champion Robert Whittaker back in July via unanimous decision. Eager to bounce back, he will take on the challenge of Jack Hermansson, who is coming off a first-round victory against Kelvin Gastelum.
With or without Darren Till in his corner, Mike Perry will have his hands full with former champion Lawler. The 38-year-old is without a win in four bouts, albeit against top-class opposition in Neil Magny, Colby Covington, Ben Askren, and Rafael dos Anjos.
Lawler was perhaps unfortunate to lose to Askren via technical submission in controversial circumstances. Although underwhelming in his last two bouts, the southpaw remains a feared striker.
Perry has had a stop-start UFC career after promising a lot in his early fights in the UFC. Despite the decision win against Mickey Gall, question marks remain over his ability to break into the top 10 after being outclassed by the likes of Geoff Neal and Vicente Luque.Published 07 Oct 2020, 21:37 IST
