Mike Perry, known for his fearless approach inside the combat sports arena, has sparked speculation about a potential clash with Bellator veteran Dillon Danis, hinting at a possible showdown while ruling out a bare-knuckle fight, in a recent interview on The MMA Hour.

Perry's remarks come amidst playful banter between him and Danis on social media, with Perry acknowledging the humor in their exchanges while addressing the possibility of a fight. He emphasized that despite their interactions, there's no real animosity between them, highlighting the lighthearted nature of their exchanges.

The former UFC fighter turned BKFC star has seen a significant transformation in recent years, transitioning from controversies to becoming a devoted family man. However, Perry understands the allure of a potential matchup with Danis, given the latter's grappling background and previous MMA experience.

While Perry remains open to various fighting opportunities, including MMA and boxing, he made it clear that a bare-knuckle brawl with Danis is off the table, citing Danis' reluctance towards such a fight. Perry expressed his preference for an entertaining matchup involving strikes and grappling, showcasing his versatility and readiness to compete in different formats.

Despite declining certain offers, such as a boxing match against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., Perry is eager to return to action soon, promising fans an entertaining performance regardless of the rule set. With his recent knockout victory over Thiago Alves, Perry's momentum and versatility make him a compelling figure in the combat sports landscape.
