Mike Perry is gearing up to headline the Bare Knuckle Fight Championship's (BKFC) highly anticipated KnuckleMania IV event against Thiago Alves in a light heavyweight bout scheduled to take place this weekend at the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles, California.

'Platinum' enters KnuckleMania IV on the heels of a second-round victory (via corner stoppage) over former UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez at BKFC 56 last December. This win marked Perry's fourth consecutive victory since making his debut with the bare-knuckle boxing promotion in 2022.

A standout highlight of his BKFC career happened in April 2023, when the 32-year-old American competed in one of the promotion's most significant events, defeating former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold at BKFC 41.

Meanwhile, 'Pitbull' is set to make his BKFC comeback at KnuckleMania IV after securing the first middleweight title with a knockout win over Uly Diaz in 2021. Despite boasting a 2-0 record in bare-knuckle competition, Alves' return has been marred by contract disputes with BKFC following his last bout.

The fighters' walkouts are crucial components of high-profile bouts, setting the stage for the spectacle and capturing the audience's attention. While the walkout songs for Perry and Alves have yet to be revealed, we can delve into the music they have previously selected to accompany their entrances.

When Mike Perry accidentally walked out to Beyonce's 'Halo' at UFC 255

When fighters select their walkout songs, they do so with careful consideration, as it serves as their final mental preparation before stepping into the ring. However, in an unexpected turn of events, Mike Perry found himself walking out to a different song at UFC 255 in November 2020.

'Platinum' appeared visibly surprised and turned to his coaches in confusion as he entered Beyoncé's 'Halo'. "Is this f**king Halo?" he questioned them. "What the f**k. Wrong song, but I was gonna pick this s*ht."

Despite the mishap, Perry embraced the moment, singing along and creating perhaps one of the most comical moments in recent UFC history.
