Mike Perry is the new “King of Violence.”
On Saturday night at Maverik Center in Salt Lake City, Perry faced Eddie Alvarez for the “King of Violence” title in the main event of BKFC 56, and Perry more than delivered lived up to the title, stopping the former UFC lightweight champion in two rounds.

At the end of the round, Alvarez’s left eye was badly swollen, possibly indicating a broken orbital bone, and when “The Underground King” informed his coaches that he couldn’t see, they stopped the bout between rounds.
