There are some things money can’t buy.
That’s why Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) wild man Mike Perry, despite his financial troubles, rejected Darren Till’s entry into the “Platinum” sweepstakes, where the highest bidder gets to corner Perry for his next fight.
“I was never considering that weak ass $5k offer for the corner spot,” Perry wrote on Twitter. “My manager was just trolling y’all. Darren Till could’ve offered $50k and I wouldn’t have accepted his offer. The media runs the MMA game tho so they were just getting off on drama.”
Perry (14-6) is likely to bring his girlfriend Latory Gonzalez back to his corner for the UFC 255 pay-per-view (PPV) event this December in Las Vegas, where “Platinum” will throw hands with former 170-pound kingpin “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler.
After that, Till will get what’s coming to him.
“You said it years ago Darren Till and you were right, you and me were meant to fight,” Perry continued. “I’m going up to middleweight and I’ll be small and fast and you’ll be big and slow. I’m gonna ruin your life. You’ll be spitting out teeth much sooner than expected.”
Till (18-3-1) has bigger fish to fry, facing off against middleweight contender Jack Hermansson at the promotion’s “Fight Night” event on Dec. 5 in Las Vegas. A victory there could put “The Gorilla” back into the 185-pound title chase.
And back into another Twitter feud with this guy.
