Dustin Pague feels at home at BKFC.

That feeling was cemented at BKFC 42 on Friday, when the UFC vet scored his second straight stoppage victory in the Squared Circle with a second-round TKO over Wade Johnson in Greenville, SC.

“I’ve definitely found my home. BKFC is the greatest sport in the world, and I’m super happy to be a part of it,” Pague says.

“I’m made for this.”

After back-to-back finishes in exactly two months, Pague has his sights set on cracking the Top 5 rankings in the stacked BKFC welterweight division.

Connor Tierney (2-1), the No. 5-ranked contender, and the No. 4-ranked Jake Lindsey (4-0) are names that quickly come to mind when Pague is asked if there's anybody he'd like to fight next. However, “The Disciple” is willing to fight anyone that will take him closer to a title shot against reigning champ Luis “Baboon” Palomino (8-0).

“Send them all, baby,” he says. “I just need a date and I’ll be ready for anybody.” 

Pague’s goal is simple.

“It’s to have the belt. That’s where my heart is, that’s where my mind is, and I’d love to have a BKFC belt around my waist,” Pague says.

“That’s what I’m aiming towards.”
