Mike Perry is one of the biggest fan favorites in the UFC at the moment. There’s no doubt that “Platinum” shows up to fight and give it his all every time he steps into the cage. After his latest defeat to Vicente Luque earlier this year, Perry is looking to bounce back in a big way.

He wants a struggling Robbie Lawler next, who he knows is down to meet him in the center of the Octagon and bang it out. Perry called Lawler out during a media scrum as a guest fighter at UFC Tampa last week.

“If Robbie Lawler would grace me with his name on a contract, let’s go bro,” Perry said. “Let’s put on a show. We’re going to put on a show. None of that wrestling (expletive).

“I might mix it up on you. I might try to change levels, shoot a single leg, take you down, punch you a little bit. Punch you, get you disoriented. Or I might hold tight and box. Who am I? Who am I to be accepted from a guy like that?”

However, it looks like those plans didn’t exactly pan out, as Perry took to Twitter to claim that Lawler doesn’t want to fight him, and the UFC also shot down what would’ve been an explosive matchup between himself and Niko Price.

“Robbie don’t wanna fight me. They don’t wanna give me niko cuz they think the money is to easy for me. As much as they’re going to pay me they want the competition to match up. Somebody gonna get knocked out ! Train everyday to make highlights ! I perform my best every time !”

What do you think about a potential matchup between Perry and Lawler?

A massive welterweight matchup is reportedly being targeted for UFC 245 later this year.

According to a report from MMA Junkie, the Las Vegas-based promotion is working on a bout between former 170-pound champion Robbie Lawler and Santiago Ponzinibbio. No bout agreements have been signed as of this writing, per the report. The UFC has also not yet made the fight official.

Lawler is on a three-fight losing streak at the moment; having fallen to names such as Rafael dos Anjos, Ben Askren, and Colby Covington. His last victory came against Donald Cerrone in July of 2017 at UFC 214. Ponzinibbio is on a seven-fight win streak and hoping for a big win over a household name in Lawler.

The Argentinian powerhouse owns victories over names such as Zak Cummings, Gunnar Nelson, Mike Perry, and Neil Magny. With a victory over Lawler, Ponzinibbio would be a likely candidate for a title eliminator.

UFC 245 will go down live on pay-per-view (PPV0 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 14. Currently, one championship fight is on deck for that card, that being a women’s bantamweight fight between Amanda Nunes and Germaine de Randamie. Check out the updated UFC 245 card below.

UFC 245

  • Women’s bantamweight: (C) Amanda Nunes vs. Germaine de Randamie – for women’s bantamweight title
