Major title implications are at stake on Saturday when unbeaten BKFC UK Light-Heavyweight Champion Danny Christie (3-0) battles top American contender Jared “Captain Deadpool” Warren (5-2, 1 NC) in the Main Event of BKFC 55 on Saturday in Leeds, UK, LIVE on The BKFC App. We asked some BKFC’s most knowledgeable fighters for their predictions heading into this must-see, intercontinental showdown.
Bruce Abramski: I don’t really know Christie, but he comes off tough, focused and determined. A lot of these UK fighters have way more fight experience than their record shows – underground fights, unlicensed fights, etc. Warren is skilled, precise and technical. I want to root for him in this fight, but something tells me Christie will come out on top.
James “Get Down” Brown: Danny Christie versus Jared Warren – not much to say about this one. The champ is a little more polished than Warren. Warren has the height advantage, but Christie will only let his shots go when he’s in range. Christie by TKO in the third.
Zach “Shark Attack” Calmus: “Captain Deadpool” has earned every bit of his chance to represent the US versus the UK and Danny Christie. These are definitely two of the toughest men inside the organization, and you will see fireworks inside the Squared Circle. USA, USA, USA, USA! “Captain Deadpool,” winner by knockout in the fourth round.
Howard “HD” Davis: USA all day – let's bring it home, “Captain Deadpool!”
Ja’Far Fortt “Knox”: I see this being a great dog fight and giving the people what they want. Jared going across the pond to fight in another country is inspirational.
Blake “Big Boy” LaCaze: Warren versus Christie is a very intriguing matchup; it’s USA vs UK, bare knuckle style. I pick Jared Warren in this fight.
Michael “Papa G” Larrimore: I think we see my brother Jared come out and establish his range very quickly, dropping Danny at the end of the first round and then finishing him early in the second!
JR “The Lion” Ridge: Going with my man Jared Warren – home team! I know Jared; we’ve got a lot of top-tier fighters out of the Tampa Bay Area! Jared Warren, third-round KO.
Esteban “Mohawk” Rodriguez: No doubt Jared Warren is coming home with this win, with all the experience and work he's put in to fill his holes from his last fight.
Kasim "Caution" Ruffin: 'Merica!
