Some fighters say once is enough when it comes to stepping inside the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship Squared Circle.

Dorian Long is not one of those fighters.

He’s already eager to return to action after scoring a second-round TKO victory over Mark Johnson in his BKFC debut on Friday at BKFC 44 in his hometown of Great Falls, MT.

“I’m impressed, but I would’ve definitely liked a harder fight,” Long says. “I know it’s my first fight with BKFC, and I know the next one is going to be a lot harder.”

Long has a decade of training under his belt, but at the age of 20, he’s one of the youngest fighters on the BKFC roster. He’s excited to continue honing his craft as he works his way up the BKFC food chain.

“I’m young, so I’ve still got a lot to learn,” Long says. “There’s a lot of work to be done, but I think I can go really far with this – multiple belts in multiple divisions.”
