It was never expected that Mike Perry would become such a prominent figure in the world of combat sports. ‘Platinum’ has won the love of fans of combat sports all across the world, and it could be because of his all-action fighting style or his strange but fascinating attitude. But the most important thing is that he has made a respectable amount of money for himself.
The fighter, who had competed in the welterweight level of the UFC, is now contracted to BKFC and fights in the middleweight category of that promotion. In his career as a bare-knuckle boxer, Perry has yet to suffer a defeat, and he has emerged as the leading figure in the BKFC promotion. The accomplishments he has accomplished recently have helped him boost his net worth.

White Belt MMA’s Twitter account, @WhiteBeltMMA, has announced that Mike Perry has signed a multi-fight contract with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC). It was confirmed by Dana White that Perry’s contract with the UFC had expired, which made it possible for the move to take place.

The estimates provided by CA Knowledge and TheSportsLite place Mike Perry’s current net worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $2 million. According to the estimates provided by other sources such as EssentiallySports and Celebrity Net Worth, this individual’s net worth is somewhere in the million dollar level. It is important to point out, however, that the aforementioned sources do not appear to account for his contract with BKFC.
Therefore, it would appear that they are calculating his net worth as of the year 2021, which is right around the time when he started his career as a bare-knuckle boxer. It has been said by ‘Platinum’ himself that the contract he signed with BKFC has resulted in increased compensation when compared to what he received when competing in the UFC. Nevertheless, the specific data associated with his contract as well as its price are not yet public.
If Mike Perry is successful in luring Conor McGregor to the realm of bare-knuckle boxing, which was teased after he TKO’d Luke Rockhold at BKFC 41, he may very well be in line for the largest paycheck of his entire life. However, it is highly improbable that Perry will be successful in doing so.
Mike Perry’s UFC career in retrospect
At one point in time, Mike Perry was considered to be one of the most promising prospects in the welterweight category of the UFC. In the latter half of 2016, ‘Platinum’ was a boxer with a perfect record, having won all 9 of his matches by knockout or technical knockout. Only one of his opponents had made it to the third round before being knocked out by him, and that was the only time that happened.
Daniel Rodriguez was able to defeat Mike Perry with a performance that was perfect.

Unfortunately, his career was sidetracked after suffering a devastating loss to Alan Jouban in his third UFC fight, and he never completely recovered from the setback. Even though he got back on his feet and won his next two fights in a row, he ultimately fell short against Santiago Ponzinibbio and Max Griffin. After that, he was never able to put together another winning run in mixed martial arts.
Although he was successful in a few of his fights here and there, he was never able to live up to his full potential and eventually departed the organization after suffering a defeat at the hands of Daniel Rodriguez.
