Mike Perry recently broke a two-fight losing streak by picking up a rather impressive victory against Mickey Gall in June of this year.

Perry had suffered back-to-back losses to Vicente Luque and Geoff Neal respectively and entered his fight against Mickey Gall with his back against the wall.

Platinum went on to dominate Gall over the course of three rounds and won the fight via unanimous decision.

Mike Perry wants to fight Conor McGregor after beating Robbie Lawler

Popular KO artist Mike Perry is currently scheduled to face MMA legend and former Welterweight Champion, Robbie Lawler, at UFC 255 next month.

Lawler is going through a rather tough phase in his career and is on a four-fight losing streak. The Ruthless One's most recent loss came via unanimous decision at the hands of Neil Magny in August of this year.

The fight between Mike Perry and Robbie Lawler is being touted as an excellent stylistic matchup by many in the MMA community.

Both Perry and Lawler are known for engaging in standup fights against their opponents. Both fighters are widely respected for consistently seeking to knock out opponents with their aggressive striking styles. That, in turn, has led the large majority of MMA fans and experts to believe that a showdown between them would surely turn out to be a thrilling battle.

Mike Perry has taken to his official social media account so as to put forth a tweet noting that he’d like to fight former UFC Featherweight and Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor.

Perry noted in his tweet that once he defeats Robbie Lawler at UFC 255, he would love to fight McGregor next.

Furthermore, Perry explained that a standup fight between him and fellow KO artist McGregor is a fight that everyone would want to watch. Perry’s tweet read as follows:

“After I beat @Ruthless_RL , let’s go Conor. @TheNotoriousMMA a stand up fight everybody will want to see.”

Mike Perry and Conor McGregor’s fight schedules could make a fight between them possible in the near future

Mike Perry’s fight against Robbie Lawler is scheduled to transpire at UFC 255 on November 21st, 2020.

On the other hand, Conor McGregor is set to fight Dustin Poirier either at the aforementioned UFC 255 event or at UFC 256 which takes place on December 12th, 2020.

With Perry and McGregor’s respective schedules running relatively parallel to one another, a fight between them in the near future is indeed a realistic possibility.

However, Perry’s fight against McGregor may not come to fruition unless the Notorious One views it as a potential box office success, given the fact that Perry isn’t as big a name as some of the other fighters McGregor has lately faced.
