With Bellator MMA also in town, Bare Knuckle FC did a bit of counter-programming on Friday night with BKFC 22: Miami.
The latest BKFC card brought with it some of the promotion’s most recognizable names, including Hector Lombard, the former Bellator MMA champion and UFC middleweight. Lombard, now established as cruiserweight champ in BKFC, was set for a heated grudge match with Lorenzo Hunt.
Dat Nguyen, meanwhile, was looking to claim his second title with the promotion, going for lightweight gold against Luis Palomino. After previously claiming bantamweight gold against Johnny Bedford, Nguyen’s latest challenge comes a full 20lbs north.
Former UFC fighter and Invicta FC title contender Pearl Gonzalez will also be in action, taking on Britain Hart.
