Midnight Mania! Mike Perry and Al Iaquinta get into it on Twitter

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania! It’s Friday again, and you know what that means- lots of knockouts. The fighting weekend is here, and bringing the good violence with it. Oh, plus we’ve got Mike Perry and Al Iaquinta getting itchy Twitter-fingers, Felice Herrig getting nasty with the tumeric and ginger, college wrestlers slapping, putting each other through tables, and much more.

Arguing on the Internet

Mike Perry and Al Iaquinta both hit pretty hard. Only one of them, however, got a bonus at UFC Fight Night 108, and that has led to quite the Twitter feud.

It seems to have started when Perry quoted Al’s “Fuck you” tweet to the UFC with some condescension.

@ufc @ALIAQUINTA you complain a lot for a guy who beat @GamebredFighter. Meet me at 170 . . . @Abraham_kawa

— Platinum Mike Perry (@PlatinumPerry) April 28, 2017

Iaquinta hit back… with positivity.

Mike Perry is a great fighter! I pray he never has a potential career ending injury and has to find out the hard way who has his back!

— Al Iaquinta (@ALIAQUINTA) April 28, 2017

Mike Perry.. Great fighter! He should really be concentrating on the 170 lb title, Picking on a faster more accurate lightweight… Sad!

— Al Iaquinta (@ALIAQUINTA) April 29, 2017

You ain’t say nothing about fighting me tho. It’s cool your roommate says you want nothing to do with 170 https://t.co/mh8icBFx1v

— Al Iaquinta (@ALIAQUINTA) April 29, 2017

@ALIAQUINTA Listen I’m gonna move past this unless they call about the fight. Talking is 1 thing. You too small to show up. I’d crush you

— Platinum Mike Perry (@PlatinumPerry) April 29, 2017

@PlatinumPerry I don’t give a fuck what you do

— Al Iaquinta (@ALIAQUINTA) April 29, 2017

@PlatinumPerry keep begging Dana, you just might get that call x

— Al Iaquinta (@ALIAQUINTA) April 29, 2017

What do you think? Would this be a good fight for either guy’s career, or is it just more noise online?

I didn’t know real wrestling involved tables or slaps.

Daniel Cormier says he would have slapped him too.

I would have smacked him 2.The match is over. Why is he still pushing on him. Deshazer did right thing. Bet that won’t happen to him again https://t.co/UfCAXcOVkj

This is unbelievably creepy.

Maybe it was the training regimen. Ali B was like, Happy Birthday to the ground! And Tyson Nam replied, I knocked the rest of the fighter down too. No? Okay. Never mind. Just watch him throwing rocks at the earth.

Ali Baggins up next. https://t.co/yZwYtKk8Wb pic.twitter.com/ArVk2YWLvE
