Mike Perry (14-8 MMA, 3-0 BKFC) Vs Eddie Alvarez (30-8 MMA, 1-0 BKFC)

The BKFC 56 Main Event has fight of the year written all over it.

Fan favorite “Platinum” Mike Perry is set to take on an all time great in Eddie “The Underground King” Alvarez.

Both men have similar size and reach however “Platinum” is the younger man by 7 years.

“Platinum” has found great success since leaving the UFC on a 1-4 skid with the one win coming against Mickey Gall.

He has since found a new home in BKFC going undefeated with big wins over Michael Page and Luke Rockhold.

Alvarez has been fighting professionally since 2003 and made his BKFC debut earlier this year picking up a decision win over Chad Mendes.

Prior to this, he showcased his skills in ONE Championship and held championship titles in both the UFC and Bellator.

Both competitors are known for their extreme toughness, heart and striking skills and this should be a close matchup.

In Bare Knuckle one punch can change the fight at any second, and the potential for multiple knockdowns looms large in this bout.

I believe Eddie will be faster and be able to inflict serious damage early in the fight and come out with the win.

Therefore at these huge underdog odds, I’m inclined to make a wager on “The Underground King”

Pick: Eddie Alvarez ML (+280)
