Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) held a special pre-fight press conference for the upcoming “KnuckleMania” pay-per-view (PPV) fight card on FITE.tv (stream it here), which takes place this Friday night (Feb. 5, 2021) inside RP Funding Center in Lakeland, Florida.
Watch the press conference video replay here.
This weekend’s bare-knuckle bonanza will be headlined by former UFC strawweight Paige VanZant, who collides with gloveless veteran Britain Hart. Watch them come face-to-face at the conclusion of yesterday’s presser in the embedded video above.
In the “Knucklemania” co-main event, former UFC bantamweight “Brutal” Johnny Bedford collides with Dat “Dat Be Dat” Nguyen. In addition, original “Ultimate Fighter” bad boy Chris Leben returns for fistic combat opposite BKFC knockout artist Quentin Henry.
VanZant, 26, will have to prove she was worth the hefty contract BKFC shelled out to land her. “12 Gauge” struggled to find her footing in the latter half of her UFC career, dropping four of six and getting finished three times along the way.
