All eyes will be on former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) strawweight Paige VanZant as she makes her bareknuckle boxing debut against Britain Hart in the “KnuckleMania” pay-per-view (PPV) main event TONIGHT (Fri., Feb. 5, 2021), brought to you by Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) from inside RP Funding Center in Lakeland, Florida.

“12 Gauge” caused quite the commotion with her staredown scuffle after the official weigh ins on Thursday, not long after fellow UFC export Chris Leben weighed in for his heavyweight banger opposite Quentin Henry. Also crossing over from the land of caged combat is Johnny Bedford, who locks horns with Dat Nguyen for the bantamweight title.
