Bare Knuckle Thread 👊🏻 (BKFC 20 - Aug 20th)

I'd highly recommend watching the Alves fight. Shows you how good the bare knuckle thing can be. Violent, short and sweet rounds, both guys busted up within a few minutes. Great stuff.

The Beltran and Lombard fights were enjoyable. The Lane fight was a cracker too, they busted up each other well. 

I'm with Ebb on the bare knuckle thing. Dipping into a handful of fights, with known names, every couple of months is something I'll carry on enjoying, and makes for a good alternative. The production on these things is pretty good too.

Yeah, Alves/Diaz was the fight of night. A pretty good advert for what BKFC is all about, violent, fast paced, technical to a degree and you just find yourself sat there wondering how and why they put their selves through it. Its a brutal sport.

The Lomard thing was a mess. The actual fight getting called a TKO was a joke, i think they should have just called it a no contest. The melee after came out of nowhere, guess you dont walk up on Hector Lombard whos a notorious loose cannon.

Palomino/Goodjohn and Bostwick/Lane were good fights also. Missed the Beltran fight as i knew he'd won before i stuck it on. I skimmed the rest. Like all BKFC's ive watched, there are guys lower down the card who have no business being in the ring, theres definitely a weeding out process going on.

The Paige VanZant bare knuckle experiement continues Friday. I aint feeling this one like i did BKFC 18, its lacking notable names but they obviously are selling this on the PVZ factor, plus i havent watched a BKFC i havent enjoyed yet.

Its a rematch, VanZant and Ostovich fought each other in the UFC which i have no recollection of but Paige won via second round arm bar. 

The woman who defeated Paige in her BKFC debut, Brittan Hart is also on the main card and obviously billed under Paige which is some bullshit, but i get it. Expect VanZant/Hart 2 if they both win.

Yeh, thats some bullshit twitter vs. tiktok nonsense in the bottom right. I think people were worried they were gonna be on the main card along with Paige, but looks like its on a segragated part of the show.

Away from BKFC, but still bare knuckle, the GOAT himself Artem Lobov is fighting again this weekend for some promotion in Russia. He's fighting 15-0 pro boxer and Olympic Silver Medallist Denis Berinchyk, and no bullshit, this is the environment they'll be fighting in:

I remember Van Zant vs. Ostovich 1. Well, I specifically remember wand's write-up which had me giggling. "Paige van Zant vs. Rachel Ostovich - brought to you by Pornhub".

VanZant needs to step away from this. It was a stupid idea whatever they were offering anyway.

She needs to be doing MMA. She is an average fighter but some of the strengths she has, like subs and kicks she can't even use in this shit. If the UFC don't want her someone will.

I was thinking exactly the same. She's not a top level fighter by any means but she is worth more than this. A decent run in bellator or something

Well they’re 1-1 now. I can see VanZant vs Ostovich 3 going down in Bellator at some point. Fuck it. Either against Valerie Loureda would get the Quagmire’s tuning in, baby wipes at the ready, as well.

How was the fight? I’ve only seen little snippets on Twitter but it looked kind of fun if you’re expectations were realistic going in. They looked like they were going for it anyway. Paige didn’t take the loss well, did she?

Has she got a legitimate gripe with the decision or is she just being a sulky baby? All the bits I saw it looked like Ostovich was giving her a bit of a hiding but you obviously can’t score a fight off gifs and 10 second clips.
