Mike Perry kicks off the main card of this weekends UFC On Fox 28 event and his opponent is going to be Max Griffin.
The surging welterweight wouldn’t mind a bout against top ranked Colby Covington, but fears the potential future opponent would perform lude acts on him in the Octagon.
“Colby [Covington]’s manager is a better manager than Colby is a fighter. He got him the right fights with the right people that got him leveled up to number three in the world. But, I think that’s Colby’s story because that’s as far as he goes. He don’t go past three. [I’d] fight [Colby Covington and Demian Maia] both with my hands down, man. Catch that underhook and hit them with the other arm. They not gonna get that takedown with me, I already said. I know exactly what Colby Covington would try to do: He’d try to put his head in my lap and suck my dick for 15 minutes. That’s it. That’s what he’s gonna try to do. So, we’ll see, man. If I can get that fight, I would like that fight,” Perry said on WFAN Sports Radio.
Covington doesn’t have a fight scheduled at the moment, last defeating Damien Maia in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night Sao Paulo.
Perry may not be a ranked fight at the moment, but feels that his skills are improving with each Octagon appearance.
“Each time I fight, I do more and more complete mixed martial arts. I use more and more of my skills every time I get in that Octagon. That 15 minutes is short. You only get so long to show those skills. I’m getting better at pulling out all the tricks, all the stops in 15 minutes and I’m getting ready for 25 minutes, so I can pull out even more tricks in 25. It doesn’t matter this weekending though. This weekend is what it’s all about because it’s one thing at a time and then we’ll see where it does from there. I have a good idea about the future, I just don’t even need to worry about it yet. I’m gonna focus on this weekend and I promise I’m going to f-ck this man up,” says Perry.
