Since making his BKFC debut at KnuckleMania 2 with his memorable victory over veteran Julian Lane, Mike Perry has become one of combat sport’s most popular international fighters. With his globally watched fight for the ages sixth-round win over Bellator star Michael ‘Venom’ Page at BKFC-27 in London, England, Perry was minted as a must-see attraction. He cemented that status with popular knockout victories over Luke Rockhold and arch-rival Eddie Alvarez in 2023, the former including a post-victory viral face-off with sports icon Conor McGregor. Upon defeating Alvarez, Perry was also awarded the BKFC King of Violence Title belt.


Thiago Alves also made his victorious debut over veteran Julian Lane at BKFC-12 on September 11, 2022. Spring boarding the win into a world title fight against Uly Diaz at BKFC-18, Alves earned the inaugural BKFC Middleweight World Title when the fight was stopped after the third round.


Lorenzo Hunt kicked off his remarkable 2023 campaign at KnuckleMania 3 with a stunning first-round knockout of long-time rival Mike Richman on February 17 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Valiantly rising from a hard knockdown to the canvas, Hunt would finish the fight by immediately dropping Richman with his next punch thrown, a blistering left hook to the head. The sequence became an immediate international viral sensation. Decisioning home-town favorite Chris Camozzi in Denver on September 22, 2023, Hunt defended his BKFC Cruiserweight World Title displaying his world class fighting skills in front of a sold-out crowd at the 1ST Bank Center.


Since his bare-knuckle fighting debut in 2016, Mick Terrill has thrilled crowds in the United Kingdom with all of victories coming by knockout. Most recently he stopped former BKFC Heavyweight World Champion Arnold Adams at BKFC-56 on December 2,2023. The fight was a 2021 rematch which is the only loss on Terrill’s ledger.

Following a reign of destruction in the UFC’s heavyweight division, ‘Big’ Ben Rothwell scored a first-round knockout of BKFC veteran Bobo O’Bannon at BKFC-30 on October 1, 2022. He followed that up at BKFC-41 with a third-round knockout of Josh Watson in one of the most thrilling heavyweight bare-knuckle fights of the last five years.


After a successful ten-year run in the UFC compiling a record of 9-4 that included six first round knockouts, Todd Duffee makes his long-awaited bare-knuckle debut against the Baddest Man in the Heavyweight Division, ‘Big’ Ben Rothwell.


Additional fights for KnuckleMania 4 will be announced shortly.
