Mike Perry’s Dream Fight
This some great match-making by the UFC here. Perry has been calling for a fight against Robbie Lawler since interviews in 2019. Perry has the ability to put on some fan friendly fights, but is limited to getting past the top-five in his division. He still poses a real threat with his power and durability inside the octagon.
Mike Perry has had some questionable people in his corner since his UFC debut. From his ex-wife to new girlfriend, who said partners can’t work together. Now Perry wants fans to offer a cash donation, to corner his next fight.
For Robbie Lawler this is certainly another step down in competition. However, it is in the right direction for the declining former champ. Lawler lost decisively to Neil Magny in his last outing, one which many thought he could pick up an overdue win.
The former champ may be on a four-fight loosing streak, but has the championship experience and Perry could be a perfect match-up for a rock em’ sock em’ clash.
