    Well, people like to assume for some reason Platinum Mike Perry is a joke but I assure you, just as Platinum Nation is here for world domination so is Mike Perry.

    So, how good is Mike Perry? Well to answer this we must look at his career, the man is only 25 years old and he started training seriously only 3 years ago. He has no real athletic background or credentials to show for himself yet...after 3-4 years of training he's 10-1 (3-1 UFC) with a 100% knockout ratio. He really shows you what's possible for a kid out of Flint Michigan who was destined for nothing except prison, he made it despite the odds. It's funny we like to look at Sage Northcutt who many like to claim is a future champion or one of the best prospects in the sport...Northcutt may only be 21 but he's 8-2 professionally, 5-1 amateur and was a 15-0 Kickboxer on the regional circuit, Sage has dedicated himself to the martial arts since he was born and was given ever genetic and environmental advantage you could possibly imagine in life...Yet Perry has done much more, with much less, in a shorter period of time. Even Jack Slack has been singing the technical praises of Perry along with enjoying Platinum's amusement. So I ask you, who really is the great prospect between them? Surely Platinum.



    People like to discredit Perry by talking about his opponents. "He lost to a male model". Let me ask you, do you know who Danny Roberts even is? He was 13-1 (2-0 UFC) before Platinum knocked him out. People think 3-0 Mickey Gall who's beaten up an 0-0 Journalist they plucked out of the crowd, a 0-0 42 year old pro wrestler and Sage Northcutt is a great fighter...are you shitting me? Danny Roberts has taken shits better at fighting than Gall you delusional haters have to give credit where credit is due, Platinum Nation is here to ease your cognitive dissonance. Hyun Gyu Lim? He may not be the best fighter in the world but he was 3-2 in the UFC, 13-5-1 (10 KO's)...Lim was a violent knockout artist with a lot of experience...Mike Perry took the fight on 2 weeks notice at 23 years old and remember Perry had only been training for 2 years at this point and he knocked Lim out in the first round violently? Are you not impressed yet, you want to tell me more about Mickey Gall or are you starting to get it? Jake Ellenberger has been on the decline for years now but it doesn't change the fact that Ellenberger was once an elite fighter and is an extremely proven and dangerous veteran...Rory MacDonald didn't finish Ellenberger, Ellenberger almost knocked Robbie Lawler out if you can even remember that far back and it took Lawler 3 rounds to find a TKO and lets not forget Ellenberger recently finished Matt Brown with a body kick. It only took Perry 6 minutes to land the knockout of the year on Ellenberger followed by breakdancing.

    Still don't like this guy huh? Did his faux handshake really offend you that much?

    In an era where most fighters are aping a forced Conor McGregor shtick, Mike Perry is one of the few genuine fighters that can also hype fights and it's not forced, he's as real as the tattoos on his face boi! Even when he's calling fighters out...they make sense, he actually understands rankings. This man isn't nearly as dumb as you haters like to think, he shows confidence but not delusion.

    It's not even just you fans, the media is out to get Perry. They've tried to slander him as a racist for words he never even said. Bleacher report posted an article implying Perry he was in black face discriminating an entire group of people when in reality he was wearing a mask and there was no relation to "black face" at all....Platinum is just a kid who grew up drinking lead in Flint Michigan, all he wants to do is fight and entertain you? Do you hate him for his criminal past? What about guys like Rumble? Gustafsson? many fighters and athletes have troubled pasts, that's a beautiful thing about sports and fighting especially it allows us to transcend such things.

    In saying that Michael Perry flatlines Sage. Gall v Perry would be more interesting.

    He's better than Sage. But that's not saying much. Does he have potential? Sure. Do I understand why he's become so popular? Also sure. But he's got a ways to go. Any top 5 finishes him in the 1st..

    Good enough to be a long reigning champion at WW.

    Hell the people who cling onto the JoubRAN fight should know that Platinum Mike Perry's fight against JoubRAN was not really a loss for Perry in the long run but more of a loss for JoubRAN.

    When Platinum Mike Perry actually landed he had JoubRAN stumbling around like an infantile goof ass. The problem began when JoubRAN stopped actually fighting and circled away to land one flash in the pan punch and some baby leg kicks.

    While JoubRAN got tooled when he got to fight a ranked opponent in his next fight. Platinum Mike Perry actually stepped up and destroyed a ranked opponent in Jake Ellenberger in his next fight

    But seriously, his last performance over a highly ranked veteran in Ellenberger should get him a title eliminator fight against Lawler/Cerrone.

    Hell if Masvidal got a title eliminator fight against Cerrone after beating Ellenberger then Platinum should get one too.

    Thanks TS. PMP is GOAT material, no question. Already P4P top 3 and will be considered the best of his era when it's all said and done.The only question will be whether or not he was the best to ever step foot inside the octagon.

    Dude is young and improving every fight. His ground game is under rated and we all know he has a black belt with dem hands. I'll take perry in a fight over anyone in the division.

    Platinum bless.

    people keep forgetting he just KO'd Jake Ellenberger. that's pretty good in my opinion, and much better than anything or anyone Sage has beaten or done.

    There is not an ounce of delusion in this thread. Mike Perry is better than sex and Baby Jesus combined (but separated cuz kids cant be doing that shit you know?). Platinun Bless.
