Update Influencer Bryce Hall Won 💀

Influencer stepped up to the challenge of bare knuckle against 3-0 opponent in the sport and won! Huge respect for taking the fight and looked decent early KD so definitely has some power and speed, but for Perez losing to Bryce is a real low point ðŸ’€

About 75% sure that was fixed.  KD was legit but everything after that was mad sketch.  Hurting his neck on that takedown when he never landed on his neck? Sketch.  Injuring his elbow to the point of being unable to continue by "hitting his elbow on the ropes"? Sketch

I'm a bit late but I do think that the Hall vs. Perez was legitimate. The knockdown was just Perez being caught off guard by Bryce's abilities, and getting up immediately afterwards. From there Bryce just got really lucky that Perez suffered an injury. Even he admitted that he would have lost the fight without the injury. Even some of the BKFC officials appeared to be pissed off that one of their rising stars took the L.
