A split draw was declared by the judges after five grueling rounds of action that took place on Saturday night at BKFC 27. According to the regulations of the BKFC, a bout that ends in a tie is allowed to continue on to a sixth and final extra round. As a result, this transpired, which was just the occurrence's second instance in all of the promotion's four years of existence.
Perry ultimately prevailed over Page for a hard-fought majority-decision victory in MVP's backyard at OVO Arena Wembley in London.
“Sh*t, I said I was gonna do six rounds, and he said, ‘You don’t go to a draw with me,'” Perry said.
“They were gonna give it to me at the end of five, but I walked out and told a lie, because I wanted more bloody, baby.”
Bellator's current welterweight championship contender, Page, was brought in for UFC vs. Bellator clash, and he downplayed Perry's fighting abilities before BKFC 27. After enduring those 12 minutes together, his opinion shifted.
Page said the following,
“I have to say, Mike Perry, I underestimated him a little bit,”
“Very tough man. …
“I thought I did enough in terms of landing. He was definitely the more pressure fighter, but I thought I landed a little bit more. But it doesn’t matter. I didn’t make it decisive to the judges.”
Perry claimed after his performance that he knew he belonged at BKFC. And he singled out YouTuber Jake Paul as well.
“Jake Paul, you need an opponent. You need a money fight. I’m the real money fight. Maybe I’ll put the pillows back on if you’re scared to get in here.”
