UFC Veteran Mike Perry Joins BKFC, Says BKFC Is His ‘World’
Another fighter from the UFC has signed to the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.
This time, Mike Perry and the organization announced that he would hold several fights for the promotion in 175 pounds.
“Let’s skip all the formalities!” Perry said in a release. “This sport is evolving, and I am here to strike fear into the hearts of my competitors! I plan to intimidate the world when I show what a truly skilled combat specialist is capable of with his bare hands.”
“I am here to go straight to the top and make anyone think twice about entering my world! BKFC is my world!” he added.
Perry has been a member of the UFC since 2016.
He held 15 fights in the promotion and earned eight victories. He is a famous fighter because of his attitude during the fights and face-offs. However, he suffered four losses in his previous five contests.
His last appearance was against Daniel Rodriguez, which he lost via unanimous decision, and it was the second loss in a row.
In September, Perry asked the UFC if he could fight again this year, but it doesn’t seem like they gave him an answer.
BKFC’s president David Feldman said he was excited to bring on the fighter.
“Over the last seven years he’s proven to be one of the toughest fighters in mixed martial arts, and his skill set, along with his aggressive style, works very well for our growing international fan base,” BKFC president David Feldman said.
