BKFC 56 to Crown 'King of Violence' in Mike Perry vs. Eddie Alvarez Clash

In a bold move that echoes the spirit of combat sports, BKFC is set to introduce a unique title, the "King of Violence" championship. This unconventional prize will be contested by former UFC standouts Mike Perry and Eddie Alvarez in the BKFC 56 headliner next month.

BKFC president David Feldman announced the creation of the "King of Violence" belt during a news conference in Salt Lake City. The design of the belt was determined by the fans, with 47,000 votes cast to choose from three designs. While the belt is still in production and won't be ready for another week, it will be awarded to the victor of the Perry-Alvarez clash.

Feldman expressed his enthusiasm for this novel addition, stating,

"I’m happy about it, and I’m happy to be able to do something a little different up here. This is a violent sport. We say what it is: It’s a brutal sport. It’s not more dangerous than anything else out there, but you have to be a different kind of person to fight bare-knuckle fighting, and these guys are. They’re different, and that’s why they’re fighting for the ‘King of Violence’ championship."

While the "King of Violence" title brings a fresh twist to the combat sports scene, it's not the first of its kind. The UFC introduced the "BMF" belt for a bout between Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz in 2019. Now, BKFC is embracing a similar concept with the "King of Violence" championship.

Feldman suggested that this might be a one-time event for BKFC, but with the clash of two seasoned fighters like Perry and Alvarez, the stakes are high, promising an "epic, epic night" on December 2nd in Salt Lake City.

Mike Perry, a BKFC veteran with a 3-0 record in the promotion, faces Eddie Alvarez, a former UFC and Bellator champion who marked his bare-knuckle debut with a split-decision victory over Chad Mendes. As these two warriors prepare to collide in the squared circle, fans can anticipate a ferocious battle for the inaugural "King of Violence" championship at BKFC 56.
