Darren Till is going to be headlining his first event UFC card when he faces Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at UFC Fight Night Gdansk.
The welterweight contender may be looking past Cowboy next weekend, because he already has his next call out planned and he is going to call out Mike Perry.
“I think that’s a good fight to make right now because Mike comes to fight and he comes to talk sh*t,” Till told MMA Fighting. “I come to fight and I don’t back down to no one, so me and him would make for a great build up to a fight whether it’s in America, Liverpool or wherever.”
Perry and Till recently got into a heated Twitter exchange after Perry predicted that Cerrone would walk away victorious against Till.
Till also believes that if he can defeat Cerrone and then Perry, a shot at the UFC Welterweight Title is going to be closer than ever.
“Let’s be honest right now, beating Donald Cerrone and then beating Mike Perry, that is pretty f**kin’ sick if I do say so myself and that’s what I will do, you know,” Till said. “Both guys come to fight and both guys are known to get into wars. Mike Perry’s got a helluva chin and Donald’s been in there with everyone. So, yeah they’re two big fights that would f**kin’ sky rocket me to the top of that division. That puts me close to a title shot. I’m going to manifest all of this and I can see everything happening. I can see Dan Hardy coming into the cage and interviewing me. I’m planning my future. I know what the future is going to hold for me.”
