Mike Perry Challenges Anthony Pettis to ‘Amazing Fight’ After BKFC 56 Victory

Speculation arises as Mike Perry hints at the possibility of a future fight in the bareknuckle fighting arena.

Following his recent victory against Eddie Alvarez in the BKFC 56 main event, Perry expressed interest in facing former UFC and WEC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis in his next outing.

Desiring to continue challenging big former MMA legends, Perry proposed the idea during the BKFC 56 post-fight press conference, saying, “One name that did come to mind that I did mention before I fought Alvarez was Anthony Pettis. I think that’s an amazing fight.”

Emphasizing Pettis’ potential interest in bareknuckle fighting, Perry referred to Pettis’ recent victory over boxing legend Roy Jones Jr. and his upcoming match against Benson Henderson in Karate Combat 43.

Perry also mentioned Pettis in response to a callout by BKFC lightweight champion Luis Palomino, underscoring the need for both fighters to have substantial social media followings to draw audience interest.
