Eddie Alvarez confirmed that he received injuries from his last fight against Mike Perry at BKFC 56 last weekend. According to “The Underground King,” the bout gave him two fractures in his left orbital.

The news is not surprising at all since Alvarez and his team had to quit the bout in the second round. During the event, the two fighters traded punches, but Perry took everything lightly like nothing. After four minutes in their fight, Alvarez talked to his cornermen due to his swollen left eye, saying he was already having problems seeing. This pushed the team to end the battle and Perry to be crowned “King of Violence.”

During his interview after the event, Alvarez already had a guess that something went wrong with his orbital that felt “smashed up.” Unfortunately, as it appears, it is true. In his recent post on X, the fighter confirmed this, saying there are two fractures in the said section:

Confirmed 2 fractures in my left orbital , one was e refracture … Woulda been a thing of beauty to close out to the show for the fans , I felt great … this game is Wild and unpredictable as can be … it’s why I love it. The Show goes on ! Love you guys

Alongside the confirmation of his injury, Alvarez also admitted to underestimating the opponent, whom he applauded.

“Tonight, I dared to be great,” Alvarez said at the BKFC 56 post-event news conference. “I went up a weight class with Mike. I did. I really dared to be great. And I thought, with everything in me, I could beat a bigger guy given my skill set, given his style. I’m not going back on anything. I thought I could beat Mike Perry tonight, bigger or not. And I didn’t. I came up short. …

“With a bare fist, I thought for sure Mike would go down. He didn’t. My hat’s off to Mike Perry. The guy’s a f*cking battle axe. He can take a shot. He can keep plodding forward and give them. He reminds me of myself a lot. I was fighting a little mirror of myself in there tonight, and Mike was the better man.”

Despite this and the severe injury he received, Alvarez is certain that he’ll continue his path in bare-knuckle boxing. The fighter asked Perry for a rematch in 2024 in Philadelphia, proving his determination to pursue his BKFC career despite his first loss in the second match he had in the promotion.
