Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship is back for another year of action, kicking off 2022 with BKFC Fight Night Jackson in the Magnolia State’s capital city.
In the night’s main event, a champion will be crowned as the inaugural BKFC welterweight title is up for grabs between Elvin Brito and Kaleb Harris. After starting his BKFC career 1-2, “El Bandido” Brito has rebounded with three straight wins, including his first win over Harris. “Lionheart” Harris will not only be looking for the title but also to avenge that loss in front of his hometown fans. After losing to Brito back in July 2020, he has won two in a row.
Mississippi-born heavyweights will battle in the co-main event, as “The Bible Belt Brawler” Bobo O’Bannon takes on former UFC middleweight contender Alan Belcher. O’Bannon is 3-1 in bare-knuckle, with his only loss being to former title challenger Sam Shewmaker. He will look to earn his third straight win against Belcher, who made his BKFC debut back at BKFC 20, over eight years removed from his last combat sports competition. He picked up a unanimous decision victory over Tony Lopez then, and will be looking to build momentum with another win.
Also on the card are fan-favorite BKFC vets Quentin Henry, Chris Sarro, Scott O’Shaughnessy, Ryan Jones, and Crystal Pittman. The prelims will also be headlined by the debut of UFC veteran Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger, who will take on fellow debutant Martina Krol.
MMA Sucka has fight fans covered with BKFC Fight Night Jackson results, with the preliminary card starting live at 8pm ET/5pm PT on BKFC’s YouTube page, followed by the main card at 9pm ET/6pm PT on the BKTV app and FITE TV.
