x Christine “Misfit” Ferea is the Champion in the BKFC women’s flyweight division. She’s defending her title for the third time against Bec Rawlings in a highly anticipated rematch. After Ferea’s TKO victory over Rawlings earlier this year, she improved to 7-1 under the BKFC banner. Ferea is currently riding the longest winning streak in BKFC history among female fighters (five), and no female fighter has more stoppage victories than Ferea’s six. She holds other notable victories over Britain Hart (twice) and Taylor Starling.

x Bec “Rowdy” Rawlings is the No. 3 contender in the BKFC women’s flyweight division. She is 3-2 (1 KO) under the BKFC banner since making her Squared Circle debut at BKFC 1 in 2018. She is a seven-time UFC vet who also holds a notable victory over Hart.

x Kai “Hefty Bag” Stewart is the Champion in the BKFC featherweight division. He’s undefeated in his first four trips to the Squared Circle, with two of his wins coming by first-round stoppage. He became the inaugural BKFC World Featherweight Champion in June with a unanimous decision victory over Louie Lopez in the Main Event of BKFC 44. Stewart was 22 when he won his title, making him the youngest champion in BKFC history.

x Howard “HD” Davis is the No. 2 contender in the BKFC featherweight division. Davis’ 5-1-1 record is comprised of four stoppages. He’s 3-0 with three finishes since April. His sole loss in the Squared Circle was the result of a TKO doctor's stoppage via cut to former BKFC World Featherweight Championship challenger Louie Lopez.

x Arnold "Bomaye" Adams is the No. 1 contender in the BKFC heavyweight division and No. 3 on the BKFC Pound-for-Pound rankings. He looks to recapture the BKFC World Heavyweight Championship against Mick Terrill in their highly anticipated rematch. Adams, a vet of BKFC 1, is 7-2 (5 KOs) in the Squared Circle. He holds notable wins over Joey Beltran (twice), Dillon Cleckler, Bobo O'Bannon and defeated Terrill via second-round stoppage at BKFC 19 in 2021.

x Mick Terrill is the No. 3 contender in the BKFC heavyweight division. He takes on Adams in a rematch for the vacant BKFC World Heavyweight Championship. Terrill is 5-1-1 in bare knuckle fights.
