Adult streaming site CamSoda has started a bid to corner Mike Perry in his next fight!
UFC welterweight and fan-favorite Mike Perry was offering fans the chance to be in his corner for his next fight.
A welterweight slugfest is headed to UFC 255 as he will take on former welterweight champion Robbie Lawler on November 21. Perry’s corner has been a hilariously infamous topic across the MMA community. In his last fight against Mickey Gall, ‘Platinum’ opted for only one corner person, his girlfriend Latory Gonzalez.
This time around he’s willing to add another person to his corner. However, there’s a price to pay! Not figuratively, but literally, as for the right price, he will allow a fan to be on his corner.
“WHOEVER GIVES ME THE MOST MONEY CAN BE IN MY CORNER WITH @LATORY_G ,…”
CamSoda Vice-President Daryn Parker did not waste any time to propose a healthy sum of $10,000 for a ‘CamSoda model’ to corner Perry. He took to social media to reveal the news. (via BJPENN.com):
CamSoda — the adult streaming site that recently promoted their own "Fight Circus" card is offering Mike Perry $10,000 to send one of their cam girls to corner him against Robbie Lawler.

Former UFC welterweight title challenger and Perry’s ‘social media rival’ Darren Till has offered to give $5,000 to corner him as well. He also hilariously set up a Go Fund Me page to raise more funds. The goal is 50K GBP.
According to Perry’s manager, Till may be the frontrunner to corner ‘Platinum’. However, he’ll have to cover the costs of his travel.
It’s pretty much a done deal. Darren needs to cover costs of travel and it’s done. https://t.co/J7OOVupqhJ

Lawler vs. Perry, a treat for the fans!
A fight between Lawler vs. Perry is a paradise for fans. ‘Platinum’ first called Lawler out in September 2017. Lawler, however, was only fighting ranked welterweights.
‘Ruthless’ recently has been on a four-fight losing streak. Platinum, on the other hand, is coming off a win in his last fight against Mickey Gall.
Many people were dismissive of the fact that he opted for only his girlfriend to be in his corner. However, the results showed something else as he put up the best performance of his career. He was able to stuff takedowns of Gall and also dropped him in the second round.
