Mike Perry has extended his commitment to BKFC by signing a fresh multi-fight agreement, as announced by BKFC officials to MMA Hook. Perry hinted at this development earlier and has chosen to stick with BKFC after a successful streak of three fights within the promotion.
A UFC veteran, Perry joined BKFC in 2021 and made an immediate impact by defeating Julian Lane in his debut. He then engaged in a crossover bout against Bellator’s Michael “Venom” Page in London, which concluded in a draw. As per the contract, they went for a sixth round, and Perry secured victory in that round, leading to his decision win over Page.
In April, Perry participated in one of BKFC’s most significant events, where he faced former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold. This event featured Conor McGregor in the audience. Perry’s performance in this event, specifically in the second round, resulted in Rockhold’s inability to continue fighting.
Following the Rockhold fight, Perry disclosed that it was the last fight in his previous contract with BKFC. However, BKFC president David Feldman expressed confidence that both parties would reach a new agreement.
Feldman emphasized Perry’s suitability for bare-knuckle fighting and his potential to become a superstar in the sport, stating that Perry is not primarily a grappler or ground fighter but excels in the world of bare-knuckle combat.
Although there is no information available about Perry’s next fight, Feldman hinted at the possibility of another significant BKFC event before the close of 2023. Perry can now begin preparing for his return to the ring after securing his new deal to continue with BKFC.
