Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship returns to Tampa, FL., October 19th with another solid card featuring some real tough fighters who are ready to leave the gloves behind and do battle as nature intended hand to hand, fist to fist, all action and may the best man win!
I hope that BKFC President David Feldman has had the bare-knuckle ring reinforced for this heavyweight main event!
Former UFC veterans Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva and Gabriel Gonzaga have signed on the dotted line to drop the gloves and knuckle up October 19th in Tampa.
These two big men surprisingly enough never faced one another inside the octagon during heir respective UFC tenures.
Both of these big men could end your night with one punch with 4oz gloves on, imagine what they are capable of when the gloves come off and they drop powerful punches on an opponent without the gloves on?
As both men will be making their bare-knuckle fighting debut, neither has the advantage of being there before. While both men have extensive backgrounds in combat sports, and both are Brazilian jujitsu experts, the only thing they have to worry about in October is who is going to land the bigger punches, and how much can either one of them take when they have nothing else to rely on but power and striking accuracy.
These 2 former UFC title challengers are going to go to war in Tampa October 19th in the main event of Bare-knuckle Fighting Championship 8.
BKFC8 takes place Saturday, October 19th in Tampa, FL and will be available as a PPV via FITE.TV
