Mike Perry got PAID!

Perry scored a super quick win last night at KnuckleMania 4 (Sat., April 27, 2024) when he knocked out Thiago Alves in 60 seconds with a left hook from inside Peacock Theater in Los Angeles, Calif. (watch highlights).

On Saturday afternoon, MMAJunkie obtained a list of disclosed payouts from California State Athletic Commission executive director Andy Foster.

“Platinum” has found his true calling in combat sports, bare-knuckle fighting, and he is being paid to do so. The former UFC fighter snagged a $600,000 payday, making him by far the highest-paid fighter on the card.

Perry’s opponent, Alves, scored a nice $200,000 payday, which was the second-highest salary.

The third highest-paid athlete on the card was “Big” Ben Rothwell, who walked away with $150,00. Todd Duffee, who suffered a first-round TKO, walked away with $85,000.
