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).

When is BKFC KnuckleMania 2
Hosted at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida, BKFC KnuckleMania 2 is on Saturday, February 19, 2022. The event starts at 6:30 p.m. EST / 3:30 p.m. PST, starting with the three-bout preliminary undercard. The nine-fight main card starts at 8 p.m. EST / 5 p.m. PST, ending with the main event middleweight contest between Mike “Platinum” Perry and Julian “Nitrain” Lane.
The follow-up to BKFC’s 2021 KnuckleMania last February, KnuckleMania II is the sport’s first major event of the new year. It is 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.
Who Won at KnuckleMania Last Year
At the first KnuckleMania in 2021, Britain Hart, who is on the card at KnuckleMania 2, won by decision in the main event against Paige VanZant. A standard fight a year ago, her contest against Christine Ferea on Saturday is for the Women’s Flyweight championship. Other key results from the night were Dat Ngyuen over Johnny Bedford for the BKFC Bantamweight title, and Chris Leben winning in the first round of his fight by punches.
