Mike Perry vs. Jorge Masvidal?
During an appearance on MMAFighting.com‘s “The MMA Hour,” Mike Perry shared his belief that a bare-knuckle showdown with Jorge Masvidal would be massive for combat sports.
“I have the utmost respect for Jorge Masvidal,” Perry said on The MMA Hour. “That’s kind of why that callout, that name has never happened. I did see him at his promotion at a fight, and we talked about it. I was little bit drunk, and I was like, ‘The people would really love to see us, and all love, and we’d make a bag for the family and it’s all just for the sport.’
“Obviously, he’s done, and he’s already done these great things. I grew up watching him and Kimbo [Slice] on YouTube. I grew up and seen him. Who’s the only other person who’s not in BKFC, but has experience in bare-knuckle boxing that would be a megafight.”
Perry is one who isn’t afraid to get into firefights with some of MMA’s most vicious strikers. Masvidal is no exception, and “Platinum” thinks it would be a legacy fight for the fans.
“He’s a killer. We’ve seen him literally kill people in MMA, and it’s not wrestling. I’m not going to try to strategize a way through. It’s all out of respect. I like Masvidal. I would like to say that we’re friends. I’m just trying to think of the biggest fight, and it’s that one, because we’re both dangerous.”
