One week ago Bare Knuckle FC held their second ever bare-knuckle boxing event. After a seemingly wildly successful inaugural fight card in Cheyenne, WY the promotion returned to action on August 22nd, this time in Biloxi, MS at the Coast Coliseum.
It was a lower profile show the second time around, headlined by a title fight between former UFC competitor Bec Rawlings taking on pro-boxer Britain Hart (2-3). The card once again featured a string of notable MMA talents. Including fan favorite action fighter Chris Lytle in the co-main, Joey Beltran, Kendall Grove, Charles ‘Felony’ Bennett, and Tony Lopez.
As with the first event, MMA Fighting’s Eugene Leydon and Esther Lin were on the scene to cover the fights. And the result of their work is the fantastic Fight Journal video, combining exclusive backstage footage, amazing photos of the in-ring action, and fascinating interviews with the competitors. Check it out.
