After the tooth got knocked out, Luke Rockhold motioned in the ref and ended the fight. Right away, many wondered why Rockhold ended the fight, but BKFC president David Feldman revealed Rockhold had several teeth messed up from his BKFC debut against Mike Perry.

Rockhold also posted his own video showing off his mouth and the cracked tooth and hinted that was likely the only time he will fight bare-knuckle.

“Well, f**k. What can I say? You can check bare-knuckle off the list,” Rockhold said. “It’s some crazy s**t. Those little knuckles got me, square on the front two (teeth).”

As for Mike Perry, he went on The MMA Hour on Monday and showed off his hand and knew the exact moment that he sent Luke Rockhold’s tooth flying. However, Perry is disappointed with how the fight ended as he believes it does take away from his win.

“He’s got like two black eyes,” Perry said. “He’s got a lump on his face. So I hit him with more shots, but it’s like I was hitting him so fast, it was hard for people to see where the shot happened, when it happened, why he quit. They were trying to discredit me, [saying], ‘Oh, Luke just gave up.’ Listen, we were only two-and-a-half, three minutes into this fight, and I had already landed some significant damage that the people just couldn’t even keep up with.”
