Platinum Mike Perry is making noise again. After winning his fight against Mickey Gall Saturday night with just his girlfriend in his corner, Mike had this to say about potential future opponents, including one, in particular, Nate Diaz:
“I think he’s a skinny, weak, little f— like Mickey Gall,” Perry told ESPN’s Ariel Helwani. “I mean, I respect what he’s done in the sport. He plays the guard game and jiu-jitsu and shit. He thinks he can box with that little weak ass punches that he’s got, little salt and pepper punches. He doesn’t stand a chance to hit me hard enough. I’d hit him on the feet, same way Jorge Masvidal did, and I’d play his guard, I’d get half guard, sit on top of him. It’d look exactly the same as the Mickey Gall fight did, to be honest with you.
“I’m not hating on Nate Diaz,” Perry said. “He’s done things in the sport. He’s made money. Good for him, dude. I’ve always thought I’d beat that guy. It’s as simple as that. We’re talking about one-on-one, in the ring, fight. And I’d win.”
