FREE Fight! Perry Retires Rockhold After Smashing His Teeth
Mike Perry will be back in action later tonight (Sat., Dec. 2, 2023) at BKFC 56 live on FITE.TV pay-per-view (PPV) from inside Maverik Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, as the former UFC contender meets Eddie Alvarez in an anticipated main event.
Perry, who made his Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) debut nearly two years ago, has become a posterchild for bareknuckle boxing. The brash striker isn’t afraid to take on whoever the promotion puts in his way and always seems to bring nothing but confidence into the BKFC ring.
Since his bareknuckle arrival in early 2022, “Platinum” has turned in an undefeated record of 3-0. This includes wins over Julian Lane and Michael “Venom” Page, as well as former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold. The last time Perry competed it was against Rockhold at BKFC 41 this past April. Despite Rockhold being the larger and more experienced combat athlete, Perry essentially battered his teeth in before Rockhold called it quits.
Ahead of tonight’s main event at BKFC 56, the promotion has released Perry’s full fight with Rockhold. You can check it out in the above video player and be sure to catch the action later tonight in Salt Lake City.
