Darren Till reportedly turned down ‘over $2 million’ offer to fight Mike Perry in BKFC. That’s according to the BKFC star.

“I heard him saying no to over two million dollars, “Perry said at The MMA Hour.

“We’re slaves to the fight game, that’s what we signed up for when we became fighters. If he wanted to fight me, I think he would have had the opportunity and the chance. What? He wants to fight me with the gloves on? He wants to fight somebody else with the pads on his hands? It’s all good. I think maybe after this we can make it happen.”

Admits Darren Till is a good fighter

Perry gladly admits that the British former UFC title challenger got what it takes to face him, but has no intention to wait for anybody as he feels he is in the prime of his career.

“Darren’s a good fighter. Maybe even great. Because he point fought [Stephen] ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson to a decision victory. It was a close fight, but he won,” Perry said.

“He had a very close fight with Robert Whittaker. I thought it could have gone either way, but it didn’t go his way. Dricus du Plessis has proven himself and become the champion, and he’s obviously some type of strong that they haven’t seen at 185. It’s nothing to hang his head on.”
