We might have found Mike Perry‘s next opponent.

The former UFC fighter has been making waves in combat sports and that’s thanks to a new promotional home inside the BKFC, where Perry has won five straight fights. Perry’s defeated the likes of former UFC Champions Luke Rockhold, Eddie Alvarez and additionally Michael “Venom” Page.

Perry’s big-name body of work hasn’t gone unnoticed with ex-UFC Middleweight Uriah Hall the latest to message the BKFC’s very own “King of Violence”. Though, Hall wasn’t here to give Perry a congratulations on his most recent success.

While the context of the fighters posted conversation was cut off, Hall apparently took issue with Perry’s previous use of the N word. Perry has stated he is 2% African, claiming that gives him the right to use the racial slur. Hall disagrees, wanting “Platinum” to pay for his words, not from within the confines of a cage or a ring but from the streets.

“l’m not fighting you in a cage. I’m fighting on the streets because l’m not holding back,” Hall texted Perry in a screenshot. “I’ve already heard you had a pass with the N-word and I have to be honest with you. You say that s*** in front of me. You’ll see real n**** coming out factor matter need to relax man. I’ve always supported you in your career. I don’t know if you have too many blows to the head or you just have a moment, but you need to chill out, dude not your enemy.”

“This is you coming at me,” Perry replied to Hall. “If you think I won’t stand up to you, you’re mistaken.”

“All right dude. God bless you and your family. Lesson learned smh [so much hate],” Hall said.

“F*ck you you clout chasing b****, you looking for attention on what I’ve done. If I see you in the streets I’m gonna fuck you up. You ain’t gonna make these weak ass threats at me like you ever been my friend, you’re nothing but a f****** p****, fake ass, f*ck you,” Perry concluded the text message.

Perry has made a highlight reel from bludgeoning UFC names and he wants even more of them after TKO’ing former title challenger Thiago Alves last month at Knuckle Mania 4. Hall could be a good fit, seeing as though the UFC veteran is now a free agent, having boxed NFL star Le’veon Bell on the undercard of Jake Paul vs. Anderson Silva in Oct. 2022.

However, from Uriah Hall’s online quarrel with Mike Perry, it doesn’t look like the ‘TUF 17’ alumni is warming up to the idea of signing with the BKFC to get his hands on their biggest star. BKFC CEO David Feldman recently stated on ‘The MMA Hour’ he was in talks with two or three ex-UFC stars in potentially being Perry’s next opponent.

Wisdom has been chasing this guy, but he’s always been faster,” Hall wrote of Perry on his Instagram story.

“Bro think he smart cuz he wear them dork glasses,” Perry replied to Hall on Monday.
