Former UFC fighter, now acclaimed bare-knuckle boxer Mike Perry will return to BKFC action on April 27. At the BKFC Knuckle Mania 4 in Los Angeles, California, he will take on former UFC title challenger and former BKFC middleweight champion Thiago Alves in a middleweight bout.

The promotion’s president David Feldman announced the fight Wednesday on “The MMA Hour”. More fights for the upcoming card are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

Mike Perry is currently undefeated in the promotion with wins over Julian Lane, Michael Page, Luke Rockhold, and Eddie Alvarez. Alves is also undefeated in the promotion, with two wins, and makes his first appearance in BKFC since winning the inaugural middleweight BKFC title in 2021. He was ultimately stripped of the title.

In the BKFC Knuckle Mania 4 co-main event, former UFC heavyweight Ben Rothwell faces off with Todd Duffee in a heavyweight showdown.
