Donald Cerrone sports a felt cattleman and bills himself as “Cowboy,” probably because he rides horses, shoots guns, and does all sorts of other wild stuff in New Mexico. That makes him the sworn enemy of Native Americans. At least in the mind of Mike Perry, who might have grown up watching too many John Wayne movies.
The “Platinum” welterweight is expected to throw hands with Cerrone in the co-main event of the upcoming UFC Fight Night 139 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on Nov. 10, 2018, inside Pepsi Center in Denver, Colo., and so he made this controversial video to help promote their fight.
Have a look:
I support the legendary Native American warriors and I am tirelessly hunting this @cowboycerrone for his crimes of defamation ! I will catch him across state lines in Denver Colorado, November 10th for alll the people of the world to see the battle between #Cowboy vs #Platinum pic.twitter.com/xFdNY8abbL— Platinum Mike Perry (@PlatinumPerry) October 30, 2018
Perry has been known to push the limits before, previously telling the combat sports media that he’s two-percent African and allowed to drop the N-word when appropriate. So far, most of his fellow fighters (like this champ) have given him a pass.
Cerrone ended up leaving his long-time home of Jackson-Winkeljohn MMA after Perry was given preferential treatment ahead of their “Mile High” showdown, but could get his revenge with a big performance on Nov. 10.
