Mike Perry seems ready to fight Nate Diaz. It would be a great test for him, and we will see how realistic it is. “My first initial reaction was, I don’t know if that’s where he’s going, where his ideas are,” Perry told The Fighter vs.
The Writer when asked about Diaz potentially coming to BKFC, as quoted by mmafighting.com “Because he said he wants to go take over other sports, as far as he wants to be the [UFC President] Dana White of an organization, or the David Feldman of an organization, and run the show and show people how to do it.
But he also said things where he’s still got a lot of gas left in the tank. “He’s still interested in some big fights in his career, and I think that’s what it’s about. If he wants to accept the challenge, to challenge himself, he loves to box.
I know he likes jiu-jitsu, too, so I don’t know if it would be something he would be fully interested in because without jiu-jitsu against me and just boxing, I don’t know if he sees himself having a chance against me in the bare-knuckle boxing ring”.
Mike Perry and earnings
Mike Perry is happy with the money he is currently earning at BKFC “We’re talking real big money,” Perry said. “Since fighting with bare-knuckle and Triller, my taxes look like what the UFC fighters got paid the other night — everyone, the whole roster, who got paid the other night on one card, that’s what my brackets look like from fighting a couple of fights.
We’re talking big money. “It’s a real opportunity for anyone involved. It’s not just we’re talking about the sport. It’s real fighting and real money, so if you want that real s*** in your life, come and get some of this ‘Platinum’ heat”.
Perry had words of praise for Diaz and his career success “It’s a lot of respect there for Nate Diaz,” Perry said. “A lot of fans have said over the years that I’m kind of kin to the Diaz brothers, and that we have the same initial feelings toward fighting.
When we’re fighting, it’s a real fight. All that friendly stuff, it doesn’t have to be there until the victor is chosen, and then we can talk about being cool. It’s no animosity. He’s a great competitor, and I am as well”.
