UFC Veteran Mike Perry Signs Multi-Fight Contract with BKFC
Mike Perry is headed to Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.
The UFC veteran has signed a multi-fight deal with BKFC, with a debut date yet to be determined. The organization confirmed the signing following an initial report from MMAFighting.com. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
“Let’s skip all the formalities!” Perry said 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 will dismantle the opposition and reach the glory I have longed for my entire life. I will be crowned King of the streets and King of combat sports! They will make me a Platinum Crown and carry me on the bloody backs of my defeated rivals! I am here to go straight to the top and make anyone think twice about entering my world! BKFC is my world!”
Perry compiled a 7-8 mark in the UFC from 2016 to 2021, losing four of his last five bouts within the Las Vegas-based promotion. He last appeared at UFC on ABC 2 on April 10, when he dropped a unanimous verdict to Daniel Rodriguez. Following the loss, Perry claimed that he had one more bout left on his UFC contract. The terms of his departure from the promotion are currently unclear.
Perry has dealt with multiple issues outside of the Octagon recently, including domestic violence accusations from his ex-wife as well as an incident in which he punched an older man at a Florida bar.
“We’re thrilled to bring Mike aboard to our vast stable of exciting fighters,” BKFC president David Feldman said. “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.”
