Who is really to blame for Mike Persil?
Let's name, shame and expose the people who have taken advantage of this man.
If anyone knows of any PROMOTERS who have booked this man, please name them on this thread. PROMOTERS, perhaps you will step forward and admit to booking Persil, and explain yourselves.
If anyone knows of any FIGHTERS who have fought Persil, please name them on this thread. It is about time people padding records by fighting bums like Mike were exposed. FIGHTERS, perhaps you will step forward and admit to fighting Mike to pad your record, and explain yourselves.
No promoter who has booked/fighter who has fought Persil can justify their actions, but I would love to hear them try and explain why they did it.
It's not fair to put the heat on Persil - people are taking advantage of him, and they need to be accountable.
According to Sherdog, these six fighters have each fought Persil in the last two years
Andy Green - Dog Eat Dog 4 - 29/01/11 - Green won via RNC after 21 seconds
John Close - Total Combat 40 - 07/05/11 - Close won via KO after 27 seconds
Jonny Goodall - Made 4 The Cage 3 - 24/07/11 - Goodall won via KO after 8 seconds
Colin Rigby - OMMAC 11 All or Nothing - 03/09/11 - Rigby won via TKO after 2 mins 14 seconds
Edward Arthur - UFA 1 - 02/10/11 - Arthur won via guillotine after 22 seconds
Jody Collins - CFC 13 - 01/07/12 - Rigby won via TKO after 52 seconds
I am sure he has had more fights, but, as a starting point, that makes grim reading.
Any of the "fighters" (bullies) mentioned here care to explain yourselves. Perhaps the coaches of these bullies could explain why they let their fighter take the fight. Promoters of the six shows mentioned, care to explain why you booked this poor poor man?
I am sure I read once that Jonny Goodall didn't know who he was fighting till the day and had never heard of him or anything about him before until after the fight.
yeah iv heard that too, you cant blame someone who didnt know about their opponent, its the responsibility of the promotor to make sure the guys they are booking to fight are of sound mind and ability to fight not the responsibility of the opponent to pick and choose their fights

This thread is a bit better as its not really calling him names im sure Mike can compete in the sport, as a community you just need to help him decide where he fits in. I mean no head shot bouts one would think would suit all party's involved or even some of the Jitz guys could invite him to get involved and take him to Grapple comps etc.
He can take himself to a grappling tournament, I would imagine?
