ANALYSIS

Michael Page vs Mike Perry Prediction: Who's Going to Make a Statement at BKFC 27?

Sometimes as a combat sports fan, you feel quite emasculated as an overall violence connoisseur among other things. Sure it's every week for the most part, but events largely only transpire on Saturdays, leaving you with a sense of disdain and inadequacy if the singular weekly card does not deliver. Besides the blue balls you get as a fan occasionally, the entire industry is still relatively still in its infancy, with the bigger complexes of baseball, basketball, and in the winter football absolutely dwarfing the niche sport of fighting from sheer event number and budget concern alone.

Michael Page vs Mike Perry Prediction

This week, however, is not one of those Debby downer times to be a fan as we have ahead of us not one, not two but three major events to look forward to this coming weekend, with each card providing a different look into segmented martial arts. That's right not only is the UFC coming out of the woodworks with their  278 PPV but Oleksandr Usyk is set to defend his heavyweight crown against Anthony Joshua on the other side of the pond to add insult to injury. There is somewhat of an amalgamation of the two also at the end of the week, and that would come in the form of perhaps the most visceral "sport" of all time, one Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship. 

While primarily still a blunt spinoff of MMA and a bastardization of boxing, for the time being, there is money to be had at the carnival, and if you were to do me the honor I believe I can navigate you to quick cash and a downpayment on a yacht if you play your cards right. While the undercard of the event consists of hobos fighting for scraps, the main event is actually rather compelling objectively. We have mid to high-level MMA athletes competing in the squared circle to prove who has the harder knuckles and the even harder machismo.

Michael Venom Page is a lanky Anderson Silva Cosplayer who looks to use his supercharged kickboxing to distinguish whatever tomato can is put in front of him. On the other side of the fray, Mike Perry is a Flint Michigan-bred savage fresh off his UFC stint and who is looking to become the biggest fish in the small pond of BKFC. Both of these fight personalities absolutely bring it both in the cage and out, which is why matching them up for this Clown College of an establishment makes all the sense in the world. Now cutting down on brass tax who wins the fight and which bet emerges victorious?

To be honest, even though Mike Perry is a fan favorite due to his reckless abandonment and meme game, I think MVP is going to dog-walk him. The fact of the matter is Perry doesn't possess a quarter of the movement that MVP does, in fact, I generally believe he's regressed leading to his cut from the Ultimate Fighting Championship. I believe outside of the possibility of spontaneously breaking your knuckles, this kind of environment favors MVP as he does not have to worry about the takedown threat, a concern that he has been having to encounter and address in his last few outings. 

Give me the MVP moneyline like I need air and an early Christmas bonus.
