The US-born star Paige VanZant has been featured in Dancing with the Stars and AEW Wrestling. However, she is best known for her modeling work and former career in the UFC. BKFC in London will be her third fight in the organization after facing Britain Hart and Rachael Ostovich. For her August 20 fight, she is only confirmed to be on the card but no opponent has officially been named.

BKFC London also featured the Bellator MMA superstar Michael ‘Venom’ Page in its main event. MVP has a 20-2 record in MMA, his only losses coming to champions Douglas Lima and Logan Storley. The UK-born fighter also boasts a perfect 2-0 record in professional boxing. This will be his debut in bare-knuckle fighting and he will meet Mike Perry.

“Platinum” Mike Perry is likely best known for his run in the UFC where he met notable fighters such as Tim Means, Vicente Luque, Donald Cerrone, Paul Felder, and many others. Perry made his bare-knuckle fighting debut earlier in 2022 when he defeated Julian Lane at BKFC: KnuckleMania 2.

Now, Michael ‘Venom’ Page and Mike Perry will meet in the main event for BKFC London with VanZant likely booked for the co-main event. Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship confirmed this news and BKFC President and CEO David Feldman added, “Paige VanZant will be the feature bout of the evening on this card. Paige VanZant will be having her third trip into the squared circle at Wembley Arena.”
