BKFC 5 – Lobov vs. Knight Results: Artem Lobov Wins in Bloodbath


The main event of BKFC 5 delivered a bloody battle between former UFC fighters. Here are the full results from the card:

Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) takes place from the Mississippi Coast Coliseum live from Biloxi, Mississippi. In the main event, former UFC veteran Artem Lobov (14-15-1-1 MMA) takes on fellow veteran Jason Knight (20-6 MMA) as both men are making their Bare Knuckle debuts since leaving the premier MMA organization. A win for Lobov would set up a future contest with former boxing world champion Paulie Malinaggi, who infamously is a rival to Lobov’s teammate, Conor McGregor.

Also on the card are former UFC competitors Chris Leben, Johnny Bedford, Chase Sherman, and Issac Vallie-Flagg. Christine Ferea also takes on Britain Hart for the BKFC Women’s American featherweight title.

The bouts will be broadcasted live on FITE TV.
