KnuckleMania 4 is set to take place at the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles, California and the card now has its main event. Feldman announced on The MMA Hour on Wednesday that Mike Perry will face fellow UFC veteran Thiago Alves in the main event.

Mike Perry (4-0 BKFC) is coming off a second-round stoppage win over Eddie Alvarez back in December after scoring a stoppage win over Luke Rockhold in his previous effort. ‘Platinum’ also has wins over Michael Page and Julian Lane in the sans gloves promotion.

Thiago Alves (2-0 BKFC) hasn’t competed since June of 2021 when he defeated Ulysses Diaz by knockout to win the inaugural middleweight title. His other appearance in BKFC was a split decision win over Julian Lane, while he went 15-12 in the UFC.

Also on the card is Ben Rothwell vs Todd Duffee, Lorenzo Hunt vs. Mick Terrill, and Feldman says they are finalizing an opponent for Bryce Hall who will be fighting in BKFC for the second time.

Ben Rothwell and Todd Duffee were supposed to fight back in December but an illness pulled Rothwell from the fight. In BKFC, Rothwell is 2-0 with two knockout wins over Bobo O’Bannon and Josh Copeland while Duffee will be making his BFKC debut at KnuckleMania 4.

The other big news that Feldman revealed was that influencer Bryce Hall will return to the promotion. Hall made his BKFC debut in August and beat Gee Perez by TKO, due to Perez injuring his arm, but the influencer was winning the fight before that. Currently, it’s uncertain who Hall will fight, but Feldman hopes to have it done soon.

David Feldman also revealed more fights for KnuckleMania 4 will be announced in the coming days and weeks.
