BFL officials confirmed the match-up with MMASucka.com late Monday evening.
Taylor Christopher vs. Ian King at BFL 54
Christopher (1-0) will make his first walk to the cage as a pro. In his last outing, Christopher took on Philip Romanov for the featherweight title. The Coquitlam native was able to get the job done and take home a first round TKO victory.

King (1-2) is an Oregon native and went pro in 2017. This came after a six year and 13-fight amateur career in which he went 9-4.
