Henry will toe-the-line against former UFC star turned bare knuckle competitor, Chris "The Crippler" Leben.

The 31-year-old Louisiana native Henry bested Jason Fann with a quick 25-second knockout at BKFC 15 in December 2020, after dismantling Brandon Malbrough in just a minute and 25-seconds at BKFC 7 in 2019.

"For my particular skillset, the things I feel I am very good at, just fit right in to bare knuckle, "Henry said in the interview.

"My style is made for this," Henry continued. "It's just fun. I grew up fighting. That's what we did when we were kids. Growing up in Louisiana, we went out, us boys, and just beat each other up. It's what you did for fun. I've always done this. Now I just get paid to do it."

Leben returns to BKFC for the first time since his BKFC 6 decision loss to Dakota Cochrane. Prior to his loss, Leben earned a first round finish over Justin Baesman at BKFC 5.
