BKFC 56 ceremonial faceoff video: Mike Perry, Eddie Alvarez itch for violence

BKFC 56 takes place Saturday at Maverik Arena in West Valley City, Utah with a main event that is likely to attract a high number of eyeballs because of the violence potential.

Fan-favorites Mike Perry and Eddie Alvarez will throw down (without gloves) to determine who is “The King of Violence.” Friday, the two combatants got one final look at one another at ceremonial weigh-ins ahead of Saturday’s card.

There was plenty of mouthing off between the two intense violence creators, but things did not get physical. A level of respect shined through the verbal jabs, as both fighters radiated energy and excitement.

While both fighters have found success in bareknuckle boxing post-MMA, Perry’s longevity has established him as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the newly-sanctioned combat sport. On the flip side, Alvarez made his bareknuckle debut in April when he defeated Chad Mendes by split decision.
