BKFC News: Mike Perry talks Luke Rockhold’s future

Last updated

BKFC star Mike Perry recently discussed his opponent at BKFC 41, Luke Rockhold, and whether or not he thinks he will fight again.

Perry showed his dominance in the squared circle on the night, destroying the former UFC fighter and taking out at least one of his teeth.

Despite ‘Platinum’ Mike being so emphatic in victory, he claimed that he does expect to face Rockhold in bare-knuckle boxing at some point down the line.

“I made Luke look like he shouldn’t have been in there with me, but he is talented, he is a beast” Perry noted when speaking on The MMA Hour.

“Based on my attributes in this sport, I’m the face of it and I’m grateful to be. I expect a more dangerous fight with him in the future.”

Rockhold revealed himself that whilst he is not ‘done’ with combat sports, he would potentially like the idea of getting some gloves back on. Speaking on an Instagram video, he said: “Well, f***. What can I say? You can check bare knuckle off the list, it’s some crazy sh*t.

“Those little knuckles got me, square on the front two [teeth]. Maybe a beard, maybe a better mouthpiece. It’s a good fight. It’s a shame it had to end that way. Motherf***** Mike, you tough bastard. Thanks to my sponsors, thanks to the people. I’m not done, some gloves would be nice, though” he concluded.
