Alvarez, a former UFC and Bellator lightweight champion, and Perry, a former UFC welterweight standout, are set to punch each other in the face when they meet in a bareknuckle boxing match that headlines a stacked BKFC 56 card on Dec. 2 in Salt Lake City.
On Monday, Alvarez and Perry sat down with MMA Junkie Radio for a joint interview and, as you’d expect, things got interesting, with both men firing salvos at each other.
“You’re gonna have a lot to deal with,” Alvarez told Perry. “It’s gonna be something different than you’ve ever felt. You might question yourself inside of the fight.”
Perry responded: “I’m about to beat the sh*t out of you. Easy work, no problem. You’re right: It’s gonna be different. … This one is gonna be different in the fact that it’s the easiest one ever, and I’m just gonna shut you down.”
The conversation between Alvarez and Perry went on like this for almost 20 minutes, which you can watch in the video above.
