Looks like Mike Perry won’t be having his girlfriend in his corner anymore, after all.
Detailing a long, explanatory message on Instagram, Danielle Nickerson says that her relationship with Mike Perry is over and that they will be only friends going forward.
She also said that the reason for the break up is that he had a ‘wandering eye’, and that although he didn’t physically cheat on her, that she had had enough of it all.
You can see the entire post below:
⚠️PLEASE READ IN FULL!!⚠️ Mike & I are no longer together. I wanted to explain what is going on because there are so many people who have shown me/us so much love and support and have invested into us, and felt like you guys deserve answers. I also don’t want to get hundreds of comments on my photos from here on out about, “where’s Mike” “why aren’t you together” and such. I am a huge believer in God & that everything happens for a reason and everyone in your life is there for a reason. Mike and I are not meant to be together in a relationship but only to be friends and support each other through life. No one can ever know what happens behind closed doors, no matter how great things may seem through social media. We are human and we all make mistakes, Mike unfortunately has a wandering eye and this time it wondered too far and I couldn’t accept anymore. No physical cheating happened but enough was said that I hit a limit I couldn’t return from. I am not mad. I don’t hate him at all. I hope to remain friends and be someone he knows will always tell him how it is and can always receive honest advice from. I have no regrets at all, only wonderful memories of good times. I wish him nothing but the very best and still know that one day he will achieve his dream of becoming UFC welterweight champion. “Que sera, sera” whatever will be will be, the futures not ours to see. I am excited to embark on my new life journey. I have no idea where it will take me, the places I will go, or the people I will meet. If you would like to come along with me on this journey I invite you to stay and see where it goes and if you have no interest I can completely understand. Thank you for the continued love and support. Xo (This did not happen this week or weekend, it’s been awhile. There is also no need and I really prefer no one dm me things about what he’s doing or putting on his story etc) thank you.
If you recall, Danielle came under scrutiny for shouting out borderline nonsensical instruction to him in his last fight against Max Griffin, that he lost.
Resident Welterweight heel Colby Covington picked up on it and posted an extremely rude message on Twitter, calling her ‘horse-faced’ among other things.
Mike Perry leapt to her defence then, but it seems that even then, he knew that the split between them was coming.
While Danielle Nickerson was posting this heartfelt Instagram post, detailing the circumstances surrounding their break up, Mike Perry’s Instagram story told a completely different story.

Platinum Mike Perry is now 4-3 in the UFC, having suffered back to back losses to Santiago Ponzinibbio and most recently, Max Griffin.
His lack of game planning was evident in both fights as he put himself in the way of too much punishment in hope of landing that one big shot.
He is currently healing up and awaiting the announcement of his next bout, while also considering a move to American Top Team, upon invitation from a few coaches that work there.
Who do you think Mike Perry should fight next in the UFC to arrest the mini slump that he is on?
