Mike Perry and Darren Till provide plenty of “weird and wild” content on their own, but the two together gift so many strange headlines. From potential foes to begrudging friends to absolutely hating one another, there have been several ups-and-downs between them.
Of the two, “Platinum” is the only man scheduled to compete, as he returns from a bar rampage and anger management classes — as well as a win over Mickey Gall — opposite Robbie Lawler at UFC 255 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Last time out, Perry saved himself a few dollars by only having his girlfriend in corner, and he won, so Perry decided to double down and auction off a slot in his corner to the highest bidding fan.
Love him or hate him, there can be no denying that Mike Perry is one of the most unique characters in the UFC. Now he is apparently offering fans the chance to be in his corner, if they can pay the right price.
Whoever gives me the most money can be in my corner with @latory_g ,…

The oddities of Mike Perry just seem to continue, as he recently decided to make an odd offer on his Twitter. Apparently he is going to be giving a fan the opportunity to be in the corner for his next fight, a clash with Robbie Lawler that has been years in the making. This spot will supposedly be going to the highest bidder, whoever that may be.
Darren Till offers to corner Mike Perry
It is unclear just how serious Mike Perry is about this offer to let some random person into his corner. However one interesting candidate has apparently thrown his hat in the ring to suggest himself as a potential cornerman for Mike. None other than Darren Till, who had previously been a serious pain in Mike’s neck, commented on UFC on BT Sport’s Instagram post about the tweet, seemingly offering himself.
“I will pay 5k ? Someone tag Perry for me please because I’m still blocked, but I’m deadly serious,” Till wrote on Instagram.
As much as Perry is an exciting and fun fighter to watch, he has mostly made his name in the UFC from his unusual antics. He is regularly seen doing odd and controversial things, whether proclaiming that he can use racial slurs because of his DNA test results, or not having anybody in his corner except for his girlfriend. Even most recently, he was seen getting a tattoo of said girlfriend’s name on the inside of his lip, much to the bewilderment of the community.
