Never one to shy away from conflict, Mike Perry is at it again, this time challenging Hollywood actor Michael Jai White to a backyard, bare knuckle brawl!
Truth be told, with the explosive growth of technologically-driven MMA Betting, fellow supporters of both stars and enthusiasts would be eager to place a bet legally and hope to gain from the indomitable spirit either will displays.
The feud stems from a video that the Hollywood actor released on his official YouTube channel. In his clip, Michael Jai White gave insight into the making of the 2009 action film Blood and Bone.
The film featured several MMA personalities such as Gina Carano, and the late Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson. White’s clip, however, did not sit well with Perry. The fan favourite and UFC veteran took issue to a whole different level and even went so far as to challenge the actor to a bare knuckle fight.
Perry said on his Twitter account:
“I just feel like #KimboSlice would beat the fuck outta @MichaelJaiWhite and his tone in the video really bothered me. He should fight me backyard bare knuckle because I would like to learn this ‘prison movie technique’ he was talking about.”
This garnered a response from White, who was not fazed in the least.
“Maybe if MP learned my ‘Prison Movie Technique’ he wouldn’t be ranked #20? I got no time for playground callouts Brother but holla when you come thru and maybe I’ll have time to give you a personal demo. Just DM me Bro. It really ain’t that hard!”
Unlike many Hollywood actors, Michael Jai White is a renowned martial artist since a young age. The 52-year-old began his training at age seven, from karate to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
White has kept active since then and has used his acquired skills and techniques in many of the films he’s appeared in aside from the Hollywood film The Dark Knight. White has also showed his martial arts prowess in blockbuster releases such Tyson, Mortal Kombat: Rebirth and the above mentioned Blood Bone.
Meanwhile, Mike Perry is coming off of two straight losses in his career, and has lost five out of his last seven fights. Perry was most recently KO’d by Geoff Neal at UFC 245, before that he suffered a gruesome nose break and split decision loss to Vicente Luque.
It all remains to be seen how the feud between these two stars will unfolds in the next couple of days and whether a not the MMA board of directors will sanctions Mike Perry for his manner of approaches towards Michael Jai White.
