Controversial UFC welterweight Mike Perry isn’t certainly a fan of the former UFC interim welterweight champion Colby Covington. Perry has now seemingly stuck the hornet’s nest by claiming that he will cheap shot Covington at UFC 245 after their fights.
Perry was recently in a conversation BJ Penn.com. He told them in the interview that he wants to fight Covington next and is confident that CCC will lose his fight to Kamaru Usman. He then went ahead to state that he will sneak up behind Colby and then hit him with a sucker punch. Here’s what he had to say:
This is the first time I’m seeing him right now. He is sitting up there on stage. Security, I came up the escalator the first day. Ken, the security guy for the UFC, he knows me, and was like I know you are a man of your f*****g word and I’m asking you to keep it cool. And, I know he is an asshole, and I know he said some things we all hate on. But, you guys are businessmen. You got to handle your business this weekend, and he was hanging me up. He’s like you got to promise me you aren’t going to do nothing. I was just like, I didn’t really promise him though.
I think he is going to lose his fight on Saturday anyway, and he’s got protection. He’s got a babysitter at all times. It is not that I want to run up and say something to him. Everyone always says something to Colby, they warn him. I’m going to walk up behind him and hit him when he ain’t looking. I’m going to take my shot when I get a chance, you know what I mean. When he loses on Saturday and I win, let’s set that fight up. That’s the fight I want and that’s the fight I’ve been asking for. So, let’s make that happen.
