“Well, f***. What can I say? You can check bare knuckle off the list. It’s some crazy s***.
“It’s a good fight. It’s a shame it had to end that way. Motherf***** Mike, you tough b*****d.
“I’m not done. Some gloves would be nice, though,” Rockhold
In 2022, he left the UFC after he requested his release, and later on, he became a member of BKFC.
Unfortunately, the loss against Perry has cast serious doubts over his future.
As for Perry, he ended up inadvertently squaring off against none other than Conor McGregor, as the latter had been there as a spectator.
