Michael Page

Michael Page will test his skills outside the Bellator cage.

The top-ranked welterweight contender will meet Mike Perry at Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship this summer. The event takes place from London on August 20.

Page remains under contract to the Paramount-owned promotion.

“This will be one of the biggest fights of the year,” BKFC president David Feldman said. “Two guys that come forward and have power in both hands.

“I am very excited to make our BKFC debut in London with a fight of this magnitude. Fans of combat sports in the UK will truly enjoy this event, as well as around the world. Thanks to the Bellator Team for helping make this happen.”

Page has previously stepped away from Bellator while chasing the title. He lost a split decision to Logan Storley recently for the interim belt.

“Over the course of (Page’s) 18-fight career at Bellator, we’ve allowed Michael to challenge himself outside our cage in professional boxing,” Bellator president Scott Coker said. “We wish him luck in this match as he resets for another run at the Bellator title.”

Perry is a former UFC fighter who has competed once before in BKFC. He downed Julian Lane in his debut.
