BK Record: 1-0-0 (Win-Loss-Draw)
Pro MMA Record: 6-4-0 (Win-Loss-Draw)
Felipe 'Flip' Chavez fights out of Albuquerque, New Mexico and holds a 6-4 record in professional MMA. He has spent time on the regional scene as well as making an appearance in Bellator and the California-based King of the Cage. He enters the world of bare-knuckle being more known for his grappling prowess and technical style although he does hold a KO win in his 10-fight career. Chavez has been fighting professionally since 2004 and fighting only 10 times since then may not sound like a lot but he took a short break from 2009 to 2013 after fighting twice a year up to that point.
Chavez makes his BKFC debut at the Prospect Series in his home of Albuquerque where he is facing the 1-1 Michael Manno.
We would expect to see a clinch-heavy, pressure heavy style similar to those of Kai Stewart or Kevin Croom with the grappling edge not fully usable in the Squared Circle. Look for a rising contender in the up-and-coming welterweight. Don't expect many fights to go the distance with the Jackson Wink tactician, as none of his MMA bouts have gone the distance.
