Mike Perry Calls Out Jon Jones, Usyk and KSI to Bare-Knuckle Fight

"Platinum" has proclaimed himself the kingpin of bare-knuckle boxing.

Mike Perry is on fire after his victory over Michael "Venom" Page in the BKFC 27 headliner. The Ultimate Fighting Championship vet already has a few names in mind for his future challenges on the squared circle, including his former Jackson-Wink MMA teammate Jon Jones. In his latest appearance on The MMA Hour, Perry asked for "Bones," current unified heavyweight boxing champion Oleksander Usyk, and even rapper KSI, regardless of the fact that all the names "Platinum" called out are much heavier than the 170-pounder.

"I haven't seen Jon in a while, so if Jon Jones wants to come beat me up in bare knuckle... That's my boy. I love fighting, man, so I wanna fight the best. Usyk, if you wanna come. KSI was at the fight, I don't think he wants those problems, though. As far as bare-knuckle boxing, a lot of people might not want that. I mean, who's the best fighter out there right now? It's me!"

"Platinum" surprised everyone by taking home a majority decision over Page last Saturday. Perry was the underdog in the clash with the former Bellator MMA welterweight title contender, but he outstroke his opponent, eventually. In his latest BKFC outings, Perry has scored two consecutive triumphs following his victory over Julian Lane at BKFC: Knucklemania 2.

"I'm the best fighter out there! So who wants some of this smoke? It's not about me calling out these cool people that I like. It's about, who's a gritty, dirty motherf**ker and wants to get in there with the champ."
