Last night, Bare Knuckle Fighting Championships (BKFC) — not to be confused with WBKFF — touched down in Cancun, Mexico with BKFC 4. The card was billed as a USA vs. Mexico event, as each matchup pitted an American fighter against a Mexican fighter or fighter of Mexican heritage.
In the main event, all-action UFC veteran Leonard Garcia made a return to the ring against infamous Ultimate Fighter veteran Julian Lane. Leonard Garcia won this BKFC 4 main event showdown by second round knockout.
In the co-main event, former UFC strawweight and flyweight contender Bec Rawlings — the so-called Queen of Bare Knuckle — picked up yet another victory, thumping Cecilia Flores to a lopsided unanimous decision victory, defending the Police Gazette Diamond Belt and winning the WBF Latin America belt.
Other highlights of the card included the latest effort from fan favorite UFC veteran Chris Lytle, who delivered a unanimous decision victory over JC Llamas, and a rematch of a 2018 Fight of the Year contender between UFC vet Joey Beltran and heavyweight journeyman Tony Lopez, who battled to a majority draw.
