Strickland is currently training for his UFC 276 middleweight fight against Alex Pereira. The winner of that bout should be in good shape to contend for the 185-pound championship – Strickland is currently ranked at number 4 along with Paulo Costa.
Sean Strickland, who currently has a record of 25-3, will be preoccupied with Pereira on July 2nd. However, Strickland, the 31-year-old, will need to keep an eye out for Mike Perry as well.
Mike Perry recently turned to social media to send Strickland the following warning.
“Sean you racist mother f**ker. You coming to Florida to put hands on me? Its Sunday bro! The lord is resting.”
“But this week I’m down for you to try and I’m going to put these hands on you. Let’s go Sean Strickland. Let’s go! Is that even your name? I don’t know. You might be Sean Sherk or one of these other UFC guys, you N azi!”
Sean Strickland replied by posting the video to his Instagram account and captioned it as follows:
“Lmao!!!! I gotta lot of people to punch but this man is on the top of the list!!! Guy cracks me up.”
Mike Perry responded to Sean Strickland’s post with the following comment.
“Ahh man I was drinking but I’m looking forward to the rounds.” Perry said. He insinuated that the two plan on fighting together in the near future.
Mike Perry hinted lately that he’ll be back in action on June 24. As of yet, though, nothing has been made public.
Perry last fought in February at BKFC KnuckleMania 2. In the event, he defeated Julian Lane by decision.
