Following Saturday’s UFC main event in Poland, a confrontation between “Platinum” Mike Perry and Darren Till took center stage.
Till called out Perry following his destruction of Donald Cerrone at UFC Fight Night 118 which had him very fired up.
“Yeah, he looked good against Donald. . . against Donald Cerrone,” Perry said during the UFC Fight Night 118 post fight coverage. “Not against ‘The Cowboy.’ That’s not the ‘Cowboy’ that wins fights. That’s the Donald that shows up, I wasn’t happy with Donald’s performance. I’ve seen him fight a lot better. Darren didn’t get a tough fighter tonight, he got someone who gave up in the first round. You know that’s not what we’re gonna see with me.”
“I’m ready to fight right now, man,” Perry stated. “I wish I could have got in that cage with him, in that Octagon, but you know, it doesn’t work like that. We gotta be professionals about this, we’ve gotta sign the paperwork and we’re gonna make it happen. I’m pretty sure that it’s gonna go down. I look forward to it, but first I’ve got work to do first with Santiago Ponzinibbio in Winnipeg, Canada.”
The two were ready to fight right then and there, and new camera angles, just released by the UFC, reveal more of what happened during the altercation.
Mike Perry and Darren Till are two of the UFC’s most promising new stars.
Here’s what the UFC just released:
Darren Till is an undefeated UFC welterweight contender, who easily dispatched Donald Cerrone in just four minutes of their UFC main event in Poland.
The Till-Perry fight makes absolute sense, but the UFC has Perry booked against someone else.
