A number of matches signed for BFL 53
Revolution Fight Team product Craig Maclean will take on Carlos Galvan at a catchweight of 140-pounds. Maclean (3-1) is riding a two-fight winning streak, with both those victories coming via stoppage. Galvan (2-2) is coming off a loss in his last outing at KOTC: Sinister Intentions against Johnny Munoz Jr.
Former BFL bantamweight champion, Jamie Siraj, will take on Galvan’s teammate JT Donaldson. Since losing his title to Cole Smith at BFL 46, Siraj (4-2) picked up a victory against Adam Burke MacDougall at Elite 1 MMA in May. Donaldson (2-3) has bounced between wins and losses throughout his pro career and is coming off a decision loss to Matt Wagy at Conquer FC 4 in July.
Two men that give it their all inside the cage will square off, as James Foster takes on Jonathan Dubois. Foster (1-0) successfully made his professional debut at BFL 52 with a second round TKO victory against Herbert Moon. Dubois (1-9) has lost eight fights in a row, but will look to pick up his second pro victory in his first fight since April of this year.
