UFC welterweight Mike Perry hasn't been shy of the spotlight lately and the outspoken fighter is now upping the ante with some heated trash talk as he is evidently trying to put himself in contention among the fighters being shortlisted for the massive return of former Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz.
Nick Diaz last competed inside the Octagon back in 2015 following a no contest against former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. However, the charismatic fighter later revealed that he plans to make a comeback in 2021.
Since announcing his imminent return, Nick Diaz has been called out by many top names in the promotion including the likes of Gilbert Burns, Leon Edwards, Conor McGregor, Khamzat Chimaev, Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson, Dan Hardy, and most recently, Mike Perry. Mike Perry recently took a shot at Diaz in an Instagram post.
“Man you ain’t gangsta,” Perry wrote in the replies for this post from Diaz. “Relax.”
Perry also took a number of shots at Diaz on Twitter last night.
“Who you hanging with @nickdiaz209,” Perry wrote. “Y’all look soft and your nose looks worse than mine. Your big head is a great target for this right hand old man. Look like you been riding ig horses with that stance. If you a gun slinger you shooting a 22.
“I’m not your average internet shit talker @nickdiaz209 , you can cut a check and I’ll show up if you really wanna do something about it,” Perry added in a followup Tweet. “You won’t tho…”
Mike Perry's last scrap in the UFC was against Mickey Gall back in June 27, 2020 at UFC on ESPN: Poirier vs. Hooker where the former won the fight via unanimous decision. The fight was one of the most talked about scraps of the event because nobody but Perry's girlfriend was at his corner on the night.Published 11 Sep 2020, 23:57 IST
