BKFC is back in the news today as they’ve announced a big time signing for their promotion. The promotion officially announced on their Twitter page this afternoon that they’ve signed a multi-fight deal with UFC veteran “Platinum” Mike Perry (14-8 MMA).
Perry said in a press release, “Letâ€™s skip all the formalities! 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.”
Perry continued, â€œI 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!â€
At this time, there is no word on who Perry will face in his BKFC debut. The signing with Bare Knuckle comes on the heels of Perry spending the last five years with the UFC. Overall with the world’s premier MMA organization, Perry went 7-8 in fifteen fights.
After starting his MMA career 11-1, the last few years have been rough for Perry. Perry is just 3-7 in his last ten fights leading up to this signing with BKFC. Bare Knuckle presents Perry with a fresh start and that’s exactly what he wanted.

The promotion said in a release that they are incredibly excited to add Perry to their expanding roster. BKFC President Dave Feldman had this to say on signing Perry, â€œWeâ€™re thrilled to bring Mike aboard to our vast stable of exciting fighters.”
“Over the last seven years heâ€™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.â€
As mentioned, there’s no word yet on who BKFC has in mind for Perry’s first opponent. Word is expected on that within the next couple of weeks. We will likely see Perry debut with Bare Knuckle sometime in early 2022.
