Mike Perry earns third-straight victory as Luke Rockhold quits in round two – BKFC 41 Highlights

Luke Rockhold

On Saturday night, former Strikeforce and UFC middleweight champion, Luke Rockhold, made his first appearance for Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship. Stepping inside the squared circle, Rockhold squared off with former UFC standout ‘Platinum’ Mikey Perry in the BKFC 41 headliner.

Mike Perry jumped off the scratch line and immediately put pressure on Rockhold in the first round. Near the end of the round, Rockhold landed a big left hand that rocked Perry. ‘Platinum’ responded with a big left hand of his own that had Rockhold hurt. Backpedaling quickly, Rockhold used his reach advantage to land another solid left as Perry pursued.

Perry came out for the second bringing pressure once again. ‘Platinum’ began targeting the body of Rockhold and landed a big right hand on Rockhold in the process. In an odd turn of events, Rockhold removed his mouthpiece mid-fight and made it clear to referee Dan Miragliotta that he did not want to continue. The bout was waved off as a result.
