«Scariest man on the planet» joins Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship
Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship continues to thrive as the promotion combines their reputation as the new bloody spectacle with creative matchmaking. Artem Lobov vs. Paulie Malignaggi was a pretty audacious booking, and I’m still impressed the fight actually went down (and shocked Lobov won). While morally questionable, the Gabriel Gonzaga vs. “Bigfoot” Silva fight was exactly the kind of UFC veteran vs. UFC veteran match that attracts casual MMA fan attention. And now BKFC is experimenting with another hallowed type of fight: the freakshow.
