Welterweight brawler ‘Platinum’ Mike Perry takes on veteran Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone in the co-main of Fight Night 139 on November 10 in Denver, Colorado, which marks the 25th Anniversary of the promotion.

After suffering consecutive losses for the first time in his career, Perry shifted his camp from Florida to Jackson-Winkeljohn in Albuquerque, New Mexico to refine his skills. The camp however also served the training ground for Perry’s opponent Donald Cerrone.

Speaking with MMAjunkie Radio, Perry recalled sparring with Cerrone in his own BMF Ranch facility, where he did most of his training.

“So I go to the BMF ranch – this would be the second time we sparred,” said Perry. “We didn’t even spar, because he’s so easy for me to punch in the face that I didn’t punch him in the face like that. I was throwing jabs, and I was able to just touch him with the end of my glove, and I was like, man, I’m not going to open up on him here in his house on his ranch with all his people around.”

“So I start shooting takedowns,” Perry continued, noting that they were sparring a continuous 23-minute round. “And he kind of reversed me. I got up once or twice, and then the last 10 minutes of that round, he was on top of me. I was trying to pull some sweeps, or subs, but he’s a slick grappler, too. I wasn’t able to get him off of me the last 10 minutes.

Jackson-Winkeljohn gym no longer serves as a training ground for Cowboy as he parted ways with the camp due to many internal disputes. The topic has been under the fire lately.
