Morning Report: Mike Perry calls out Nick Diaz: ‘F*ck the Diaz brothers! East coast b*tch!’

Morning Report: Mike Perry calls out Nick Diaz: ‘F*ck the Diaz brothers! East coast b*tch!’

Earlier this week, Nick Diaz revealed his intention to return to MMA early next year. The announcement came out of nowhere and immediately garnered a ton of response in the MMA community. Since then, a number of welterweights have thrown their hat in the ring to be the one to welcome Diaz back, including Leon Edwards, Stephen Thompson, and Darren Till. Even Conor McGregor got in on the fun, but perhaps no one has been more aggressive in calling for a fight with the elder Diaz brother than Mike Perry.

On Thursday, Perry took to social media, unleashing a series of Tweets attempting to goad Diaz into a fight.

Everybody talking about the return of @nickdiaz209 like he looks tough or something. A skinny weakling like his lil brother, y’all both look like @mickeygall , @realroyce was the only guy ever good at that jitsu style. Florida jiu jitsu is on top ! #EastCoast

They saying you won’t show up for the fight @nickdiaz209 ‍♂️ your brother already got showed up by the east coast. You ain’t gonna do nothing about that ?

— Platinum Mike Perry (@PlatinumPerry) September 10, 2020

I know you don’t train like you use to @nickdiaz209 but I have just been chillin with my girl on #MiamiBeach and you still don’t want this east coast smoke ! Im a power puncher and those lil salt & pepper punches you throw won’t phase me.

— Platinum Mike Perry (@PlatinumPerry) September 10, 2020

I’ll hit you with this right hook and you’ll pull guard and I’ll just ride out the time with ground and pound from top position. If you don’t want to come back we understand, just stop clout chasing @nickdiaz209

Who you hanging with @nickdiaz209 ? Y’all look soft and your nose looks worse then mine. Your big head is a great target for this right hand old man. Look like you been riding ig horses with that stance. If you a gun slinger you shooting a 22 pic.twitter.com/9eoPYRXVVN

Fuck the Diaz brothers ! East coast bitch !

— Platinum Mike Perry (@PlatinumPerry) September 10, 2020

I’m not your average internet shit talker @nickdiaz209 , you can cut a check and I’ll show up if you really wanna do something about it. You won’t tho. . .

Perry previously used a similar strategy to call out Nate Diaz but to no avail. Similarly, Nick Diaz is reportedly interested in facing top welterweights upon his return and Perry is currently unranked with a 7-6 record in the UFC. Then there’s the matter of Perry being functionally suspended by the UFC pending “professional treatment” following an alleged assault of three people in July. That being said, Perry may have slightly more luck here as his name is at least one that oddsmakers have included as a possible opponent for Nick Diaz’s return.

Diaz has not fought since 2015, a loss to Anderson Silva that was overturned to a no-contest following failed drug tests by both fighters. Meanwhile, Perry is coming off a unanimous decision victory over Mickey Gall in June.

Marvin Vettori is getting heated.

If you are asking yourself why i would accept a fight with a way lower ranked opponent it’s because first I wanna stay active, second I’m not scared of proving myself over and over and third these top 15 they are fucking campers. They think they’re playing COD or something

Mark Hunt reminiscing.

View this post on Instagram

One of the most amazing moments of my fighting career and also one of the lowest times of my fighting life. Looking back at this now I only have mixed emotions- 21 kilograms of weight loss in 3 1/2 weeks at altitude, kidnapping threat, super dam hot saunas , another headline for another sector of the world, personal issues, so much shit u wouldn’t even consider…. But dam I love Mexico I love the Mexican people and even though it didn’t go the way we wanted it I am very thankful to @ufc and @danawhite for letting me open this market I’m very thankful to my guys zen -Flinty- big Steve -lollo -woz- my man toks – Tama and Jen and her family also my guys that couldn’t be there. Win lose or draw I’m all in in this crazy life vatos locos forever carnale. @juggernautmarkhunt

FIGHT ANNOUNCEMENTS

Brok Weaver (15-5) vs. Jalin Turner (9-5); UFC Vegas 10, Sep. 12.

FINAL THOUGHTS

No one ever called Mike Perry subtle. Still, that’s actually probably a good fight for Diaz to come back to. Makes much more sense than an actual top welterweight.

Thanks for reading, enjoy the fights, and see y’all on Monday.
