“Platinum” Mike Perry, the mildly outspoken UFC welterweight, went on another one of his famous Twitter rampages and called anyone and everyone out in the welterweight division in a series of tweets.

Though Perry’s Twitter account might not have a lot of followers, it does provide some high-quality entertainment, with Perry being a great personality to witness. In this series of Tweets, he started with a call out to Alan Jouban and demanded a rematch. Jouban claimed their fight via decision, and Perry might be on the lookout for some revenge.

Jouban’s reply was immediate. He said, “I might be riding off into the sunset, my friend. Getting too old for this!

However, Mike Perry was not done yet. Small hurdles like these wouldn’t deter a man like him. Subsequently, he called out Li Jingliang from China Top Team. However, he was very respectful in the callout, saying that it would be an honor to knock him out as he is a huge fan of Chinese Martial Arts.

He did not receive a response from the Chinese welterweight, and maybe this was the reason he went ahead with his third tweet. It was also by far the most emphatic one. ‘Platinum’ let fans know that he would be working out on Monday and would be ready for anyone who answered him.

Mike Perry has consistently frequented the headlines with his eye-catching antics. He still does not have a team, and he has been walking out with his girlfriend, Latory Gonzalez. She is also the only person who corners him in his fights.

It will always be an entertaining day when Mike Perry is around, and his fights always deliver. No matter who he fights next, the world will be watching with their full attention on him. Maybe he might also reveal his cornermen. Who knows at this point?

What did you make of Perry’s Twitter activity?
