The fastest-growing combat sport on earth right now is undoubtedly Bare Knuckle Fighting. At the forefront stands one promotion, Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship, the vision of BKFC President David Feldman has grabbed the world of sports by the throat, and there is no stopping, nor denying the momentum and excitement his promotion has brought to the fighting world.
BKFC has it all, action, excitement, and a lil bit of blood, and the fans and fighters themselves love it.
With the growth of the company comes the need for athletes to compete. While they get lots of requests from people that say they want in, the truth is most of those requests are from folks who have no idea what they are asking for, and if given the chance to do this, would run for the hills after one round.
Feldman has done a tremendous job acquiring talent so far. Former UFC fighters Artem Lobov, Jason Knight, and Jim Alers have all shined in this new arena of fighting and have become stars. Feldman also had former world champion boxer, Paulie Malignnagi fight as well as Antonio Silva, Chris Leben.
Thiago Alves is getting ready to make his promotional debut as well as former Bellator standout David Rickels. Last week the promotion signed former UFC star Paige Van Zandt to a 4 fight multi-million dollar deal. BKFC has money and will spend it if it makes sense. The PVZ signing was brilliant on so many levels. Feldman even threw a $25 million dollar offer at Mike Tyson, and yes it was a legitimate offer. After chatting with Team Tyson both parties agreed it was not right for Tyson at this time.
BKFC is going all-in on looking for talent to fill the roster, and while bringing in names is smart, they want to develop their own stars to grow from infancy if you will. How will they do this you ask? Simple they are going to hold open tryouts all across the nation to find talented athletes that are truly ready to compete in the purest form of combat sports going today.
Saturday, August 29th the search for the next stars begins in Olathe, Kansas at American Top Team Welcome Mat. David Feldman and his team will be there assessing the talent in the room, and they will be looking to award contracts to 2 fighters, male or female, it does not matter, if you are built for this, they want you!
If you think that you can become a star by throwing away the gloves, and knuckling up, then this is an opportunity you don’t want to miss. All you need to do is show up at the tryouts and register which will begin at 12:00 p.m local time, with the tryouts beginning at 1:00. Bring your fight gear, and you better be in shape as you are going to be put to the test.
BKFC pays well, and they will be producing a ton of shows, in other words, this is a phenomenal opportunity to fight professionally, get paid well, and grow your brand in the world of combat sports.
As stated above the tryout, the first of many on the promotion’s schedule will take place in Olathe, Kansas Saturday, August 29th here once again is the location.
- American Top Team Welcome Mat
- 2115 E Kansas City Road
- Olathe, Kansas 66061
Two people will get contracts, and if the talent in the room calls for it, Feldman is not afraid to offer more contracts. If you are ready, step up, show up, show out, and make your dream a reality.
