It seems UFC lightweight and fan favourite “Platinum” Mike Perry and his “Platinum Princess” Danielle Nickerson have called it quits on their very public relationship following reports of Perry’s “wandering eyes”.
Nickerson has long been a staple of Perry’s corner, giving advice and instructions that have drawn the ridicule of some mixed martial arts fans and pundits over the last few years.
Wannabe bad boy Colby Covington referred to Nickerson as Perry’s “ratchet horse-faced girlfriend” earlier this month following Perry’s unanimous decision loss to Max Griffin at UFC Orlando late last month.
Nickerson responded in jest, posting an image on Instagram with the caption “just horsing around”, showing that not only was she capable of taking a joke, she was also taking the high road against the bully in Covington.
Unfortunately, it now seems that the “Platinum Couple” as they have become known to fans, is no more, with Nickerson confirming infidelity had been an issue in a post on Instagram today that she and Perry “are no longer together.”
“I am a huge believer in God & that everything happens for a reason and everyone in your life is there for a reason. Mike and I are not meant to be together in a relationship but only to be friends and support each other through life,” she wrote in the post.
“Mike, unfortunately, has a wandering eye and this time it wandered too far and I couldn’t accept any more. No physical cheating happened but enough was said that I hit a limit I couldn’t return from. I am not mad. I don’t hate him at all.
“I hope to remain friends and be someone he knows will always tell him how it is and can always receive honest advice from. I have no regrets at all, only wonderful memories of good times.
“I wish him nothing but the very best and still know that one day he will achieve his dream of becoming UFC welterweight champion.”
Perry might have already moved on if his Instagram story is anything to go by, where he has posted images and videos of himself with a number of female friends over the last day or so, including one of a girl twerking for him on camera.
