Mike Perry is taking his talents to the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.
The addition of Perry (14-8-0, UFC), 30, was confirmed by BKFC in a tweet earlier today. “We’re thrilled to bring Mike aboard to our vast stable of exciting fighters,” BKFC president David Feldman said in a press release. “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.”

Perry leaves the UFC with a 3-7-0 record in his last 10 fights and some controversy outside of the octagon including 2020 domestic violence allegations from his wife Danielle Nickerson and an incident in a bar in Florida where Perry allegedly punched a man.
Guess WTF I’m about to do !?

Bareknuckle fighting could offer Perry a new fighting life as it has to other former UFC fighters like Hector Lombard, Paige Vanzant, and Rachael Ostovich.
Terms and Perry’s first opponent were not disclosed.
