Fight fans nearly witnessed a brawl at the official BKFC 18 weigh ins. Luckily, security was there to step in.
Julian Lane, who is known from his stint on The Ultimate Fighter, is expected to fight Jake Bostwick on the BKFC 18 “Prelims.” The two men stepped on the scales earlier tonight (Fri., June 25, 2021) for their 175-pound matchup and all hell almost broke loose.
Lane weighed in first and simply couldn’t stay still. The MMA veteran was pacing back-and-forth waiting for Bostwick to weigh in. Bostwick eventually stepped on the scale and then proceeded to ignore Lane while striking some poses for the media. Once Bostwick turned his attention to “Nitrane” that’s when Lane pushed him back with his forehead. Bostwick returned favor before slapping Lane in the side of the head. The incident was quickly broken up after that.
