In a heated conversation, MMA fighters Darren Till and Mike Perry rekindled their grudge and expressed their desire to eventually fight in the octagon. The duo, who had previously sparred together, talked about their fighting styles and possible outcomes.
While ‘Platinum’ Perry stressed the value of sparring and entertaining the crowd, Till boasted about his boxing prowess and said he could knock Perry out with a jab. For those unaware, Till has left the UFC and is trying to pursue opportunities in boxing or Bare-Knuckle fighting. Perry, on the other hand, is signed with Bare Knuckle FC and is the #1-ranked middleweight fighter there.
In a recent podcast on the Kanpai Media channel, Perry once again made news because of his hilarious statements, as he expressed to Darren Till that in his last life, he was none but one of the greatest boxers of all time, Mike Tyson. “It’s been reborn; I am white now, said the BKFC middleweight, asserting that he is the reincarnation of Mike Tyson but of a different ethnicity.

The whole conversation around Tyson started when Till asserted that he had an advantage over Perry as he was taller than him. To this, the former UFC fighter responded by saying that shorter guys like Mike Tyson are absolutely dominant when it comes to the fight game. “Tell that to Mike Tyson, bro. Short kings everywhere. He used to beat the sh*t out of you big, tall fat f*cks back in the day”. – said Mike Perry
Darren Till (18-5-1 in MMA) once looked like a bright prospect for the UFC, but he has not been able to find his best form in the last few years as he has lost 5 out of his last 6 fights.
Mike Perry and Darren Till reveal what happened in their iconic ‘Spa’ sparring session
The sparring session between Mike Perry and Darren Till is arguably the most famous sparring match in history, as it has almost become a meme. The two recently reflected on their training session together after several years.
In a podcast recently, Darren Till revealed that Mike Perry had cut him during their famous sparring session. The fighters also shared how they both view their training sessions. While Till does not take much pressure in his sparring, Mike Perry makes sure that he puts up a show even in the training, as he feels a lot of people are there at the gym just to watch him train.
It is safe to conclude that Perry and Till have a sweet and sour relationship because they alternate between making fun of one another and planning a fight. The story started with a 2018 viral video in which these two fighters ran into each other on the street, and Till misunderstood that Perry had invited him for a spa session when the latter was talking about a sparring session.
