Mike Perry and Luke Rockhold cleared the final hurdle before their BKFC 41 grudge match.
The two UFC veterans successfully made weight for their 185-pound contest on Friday. Former UFC middleweight champion Rockhold tipped the scales at 185.4 pounds for his bare-knuckle boxing debut, while Perry came in just a smidge lighter at 184.2 pounds.
Rockhold and Perry also faced off for the final time, which can be watched above. The pair briefly shadowboxed before going nose-to-nose and lightly jostling each other.
“You liked that, didn’t you Mike?” Rockhold said with a grin.
