It was an event that was capped off with a wild fight between Artem Lobov and Jason Knight in Mississippi as Bare Knuckle FC put on their 5th event.
The headliner was a something out of an action movie as teeth were lost and both men demonstrated a no quit style. Chris Leben asserted dominance in his outing as it only took him 25 seconds to stop Justin Baesman. Christine Ferea won the women’s featherweight title with a TKO when doctor’s intervened in her fight with Britain Hart.
Next up for the company could potentially be a big fight between Lobov and former boxing champ Paulie Malignaggi. That fight could be as early as June.
