Mike Perry and Darren Till have been going after each other for a while on Twitter now. The two fighters used to be in the same weight division. However, Till recently moved up to middleweight and has seen success there while ‘Platinum’ continues to languish at welterweight.
The pair used to be cordial with each other and have even sparred together. However, it looks as though the relationship is now beyond repair judging by the recent tweets made about each other.
The issues between the two men started when ‘Platinum’ put out a tweet saying the highest bidder would get to corner him in his upcoming fight. ‘The Gorilla’ responded that he would put up $5,000 for the same. He then posted a few memes on this situation, which did not sit well with Perry.
Mike Perry sends a chilling message to Darren Till
A few hours back Perry put out a rather graphic tweet pointing out what he would do if and when the pair met in the octagon. He tweeted, “You said it years ago (Darren Till) and you were right. You and me were meant to fight. 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…”
Perry is determined to fight Till, even if it means moving up. The American fighter is coming off a dominant win and has a challenging fight lined up for him at UFC 255. He will face former welterweight champion and UFC legend Robbie Lawler.
Till on the other hand is split in wins and losses since his move up to middleweight. He has a win over Kelvin Gastelum and a loss against Robert Whittaker and will fight Jack ‘The Joker’ Hermansson in December. A fight against Mike Perry may not serve a purpose in the rankings, but it could be an absolute barn burner.
