Danielle Nickerson filed for divorce from UFC fighter Mike Perry earlier this year and a short time after that was filed, a request for a protective order was made by Nickerson against Perry.
That request would be denied by Judge Alice L. Blackwell on March 4 because Nickerson “failed to allege facts sufficient” according to documents obtained by MMA Junkie.
Nickerson did provide three written statements accusing Perry of disturbing behavior and making threats against her:
On February 8, 2020, unknown location: “Michael Perry, my husband, verbally threatened if I were to stay at the house he would ‘beat my ass.'”
On February 8, 2020, unknown location: “Michael Perry, my husband, followed me to the house highly intoxicated screaming at his mother to have me come outside. When we both refused he said, ‘Well then I’ll go home and burn the house down with the dogs in it.’ Police pulled him over in the neighborhood after he peeled out in the house’s grass yard.”
On March 3, 2020, Rachel’s Strip Club in Orlando: “Michael Perry, my husband, was under the influence of heavy alcohol and unknown drugs, was caught cheating, stated he paid to have ‘Brooke suck his (expletive)’ in the private room. Told me to ‘file the papers, (expletive). I want a divorce.'”
An order signed by Judge Blackwell stated that “under Florida law, general relationship problems and uncivil behavior are not domestic violence. … Verbal threats, without more, are not domestic violence.”
Perry’s future ex-wife also issued the following statement about Perry on Instagram:
There has been no statement issued at this time by Perry or his representatives about the accusations made by Nickerson. Perry has been under some scrutiny as of late for his alleged eratic behavior, as the UFC star recently got into a physical altercation at a Texas restaurant, an incident that led to Perry saying he would seek help to deal with personal issues.
