You might forget you were supposed to fight Mike Perry. He won’t.
A friendly sparring session wasn’t enough to quell Perry’s (13-4 MMA, 6-4 UFC) interest in a showdown with U.K. star Darren Till (17-2-1 MMA, 5-2-1 UFC). It’s been 19 months since a post-fight confrontation put them on a collision course, and they’ve taken their lumps and losses since. But the time is now for social media lover “Platinum.”
You said we were meant to fight @darrentill2 , when we gonna make that happen?
And though they’re technically on different tracks, what with Perry coming off a win over Alex Oliveira and Till coming off the most brutal knockout loss of his career, the idea doesn’t seem far-fetched. It’s also the type of dangerous matchup that makes things interesting for Till, who’s at the point of sink or swim in the welterweight division after a fast rise to the top.
We know what we’re going to get from Perry. He’s going to try to bounce that head off the canvas again. We don’t quite know where Till is at, but this is a pretty good measuring stick.
So we’re all on board if the UFC wants to put these two together. We couldn’t be in the room when they mixed it up for practice. We’d love to be there when they do it for real.
