BKFC makes its way to the Mohegan Sun Arena for an epic eleven-fight card that will be capped off with a featherweight scrap between two grizzled veterans in that of Jimmie “El Terror” Rivera and Daniel Straus

WATCH-BKFC 61: Connecticut Live Weigh-Ins

Rivera will enter the BKFC ring for the third time in his career, as the New Jersey-born brawler will look to bounce back from a TKO loss to Jeremy Stephens at BKFC 56. The stoppage came in round three as the cage-side doctor waved off the contest due to a brutal cut over the left eye of Rivera. Straus, who has not seen a professional combat sports victory since 2019, will make his second ever walk to the BKFC ring Saturday night. The 39-year-old is headlining his second BKFC event, as his bareknuckle debut saw him go the distance with Dat Ngyuen in the main event of BKFC 38.
