The third installment of Bare Knuckle FC will commence later this evening (Sat., Oct. 20, 2018) live on pay-per-view (PPV) from inside Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Mississippi.

It has been just over four months since the promotion made its ground-breaking debut as the first sanctioned bare knuckle fight in the United States since 1889. With more and more fighters wanting to take part in the Bare Knuckle FC movement it’s been pretty easy for the promotion to make quick turnarounds. Remember, Bare Knuckle FC 2, led by former UFC fighter Bec Rawlings, took place this past August.

For those fight fans looking to change things up from the usual gloved action, we’ve compiled all the necessary information for tonight’s bloody Bare Knuckle FC 3 event.


Who Is Fighting?

The main attraction of the evening will be a heavyweight championship fight between tournament finalists Arnold Adams and Sam Shewmaker. The two heavyweights have put in work over the past couple of months to get to this point and one will be crowned champion after tonight’s action.

Adams, who holds a 7-10 professional MMA record, scored a second-round TKO victory over D.J. Linderman back at Bare Knuckle FC 1 before ravaging UFC veteran Joey Beltran via fourth-round TKO this past August at Bare Knuckle FC 2. Shewmaker, on the other hand, scored an insane one-punch knockout over Eric Prindle at Bare Knuckle FC 1 before earning a split-decision win over Maurice Jackson at Bare Knuckle FC 2.

In addition to the heavyweight title fight, notable MMA veterans Kendall Grove, Joe Riggs, and Johnny Bedford will also be in action.

The complete fight card is as follows:

Sam Shewmaker vs. vs. Arnold Adams
Kendall Grove vs. Marcel Stamps
Johnny Bedford vs. Keith Richardson
Dillard Pegg vs. Rusty Crowder
Joe Riggs vs. Brock Weaver
Abdiel Velazquez vs. Shawn West
Reggie Barnett Jr. vs. Clayton Reynolds
Travis Thompson vs. Matt Murphy
Christine Ferea vs. Jennifer Tate
Harris Stephenson vs. Elvin Britto
Aaron Brink vs. Mike Bissett
