Mixed martial arts is brutal enough, but bare-knuckle fighting is something else. Former UFC fighter Chad “Money” Mendes will get his full introduction to the sport on Saturday, February 19, 2022, when he makes his Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship debut at BKFC KnuckleMania 2. While Mendes (18-5 MMA) brings outside recognition value , he’s joining another former UFC fighter, Mike “Platinum” Perry, who is actually half of the main event. Perry (14-8-0 MMA) will make his BKFC debut against Julian “Nitrain” Lane (4-5-0, 2 KO BKFC).

The follow-up to BKFC’s 2021 KnuckleMania last February, KnuckleMania II is the sport’s first major event of the new year. It’s nothing new to find former UFC fighters sign with the more brutal BKFC, and Saturday’s nine-fight main card is sprinkled with them. Fought with one-inch padding on the knuckles, the hits are harder and bloodier, and the action is ramped up.
