Mike Perry offers to make Octagon return, fight Nate Diaz at UFC 300: ‘Y’all could bring me back for a little purse’

Mike Perry offers to make return and fight Nate Diaz at UFC 300 y'all could give me a little purse

Former welterweight contender, Mike Perry has campaigned for a return to the Octagon in the form of a UFC 300 clash with fellow promotional alum, Nate Diaz – even going as far as lobbying Chief Business Officer, Hunter Campbell, who appeared less than interested in the floated clash.

Perry, a former welterweight contender under the banner of the UFC, continued his promotional-perfect run in the David Feldman-led BKFC (Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship) back in December.

Winning the inaugural King of Violence title, Michigan native, Mike Perry landed a second round TKO win over former UFC lightweight champion, Eddie Alvarez due to a corner’s stoppage – adding to a prior knockout win over former middleweight titleholder, Luke Rockhold in Colorado last April in a light heavyweight clash.

As for Diaz, the former lightweight title challenger departed the UFC following a stunning rallying performance against former interim titleholder, Tony Ferguson back in 2022, landing a fourth round guillotine choke submission win.

And making a professional boxing debut at a pay-per-view event in August last, Stockton veteran, Diaz suffered a unanimous decision loss to outspoken puncher, Jake Paul in ‘The Lone Star State’.

However, linked with a return to the Octagon in a massive appearance at UFC 300 in April, Diaz, who missed out a monumental UFC 200 card back in 2016, claimed it would be “better” for him to headline this edition of a massive flagship event.

And according to Flint native, Perry, who has competed 15 times inside the Octagon, he would land himself a small purse to fight Diaz at UFC 300 in April.

“Nate Diaz says there’s no one to fight on UFC 300,” Mike Perry told the above-mentioned, Campbell via phone call on the Overdogs Podcast. “I’m saying me and Nate, y’all could bring me back for a little purse and then throw in the PPV points, and then we could have a great show for UFC 300.”

Immediately shutting down the idea of a bout against Diaz, Campbell urged Perry to lobby the brass over at BKFC to make a fight between himself and The Ultimate Fighter winner.

“I’ve got a better idea,” Campbell said. “Why don’t you f*cking – why don’t you guys talk to f*cking Nate and get him to go over and fight you there.”
