BKFC stars split on Alvarez-Mendes showdown at BKFC 41

Monday, Apr 24 2023 by BKFC Staff

We asked some of BKFC’s biggest stars who they’re picking for BKFC 41’s Co-Main Event between former UFC champ Eddie “The Underground King” Alvarez and former UFC title challenger Chad “Money” Mendes (1-0). Check it out as we continue the countdown to Saturday’s action at 1STBANK Center in Denver, LIVE on The BKFC App.

Jared “Captain Deadpool” Warren: It’s a toss up because they were both at the top of the MMA game for a long time. That being said, I’m going with Mendes by decision based on a gut feeling.

Steve “Tomahawk” Townsel: Chad beats Eddie because he knows what to expect already, and he’s just too explosive in and out. 

Christian “The Terminator” Torres: I’ve gotta go with Mendes, even though he has only one bare knuckle fight. But this one is anyone's fight because of the lack of fights on both sides. But I'll take Mendes because he has been there once already. 

JR “The Lion” Ridge: These guys are both legends, but I’m going with Mendes on this one. He’s too explosive and quick for Alvarez. Alvarez has been out of the game a while and we may see some of that ring rust.

Dustin “The Disciple” Pague: My predictions nowadays are completely based on who I want to win, not who I believe will win (laughs). As you know in the fight game, especially bare knuckle, it’s any man’s game. Win that being said, I am taking Alvarez!

Devin Gibson: This could be one of the most fun scraps we’ve seen. Both a little beyond their best years, but I think they’re both in a position for a Fight of the Night together. Like Eddie said multiple times, they’re both going to go down and it’s going to be whoever has more in the tank near the end. Eddie by fourth-round or fifth-round TKO.

Zach “Shark Attack” Calmus: I think Mendes will destroy Alvarez. He has the bare knuckle experience already, and that makes a huge difference.
