Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship returns to the beautiful state of Montana for the fourth time this week as BKFC 44 goes down Friday under the bright lights at Four Seasons Arena in Great Falls, MT, LIVE on The BKFC App.
The vacant BKFC World Featherweight Championship is on the line as the unbeaten Kai “Hefty Bag” Stewart (3-0, 2 KOs) and Louie “El Loco” Lopez (3-1, 3 KOs) collide in a hugely anticipated Main Event showdown. This is a grudge match that’s been years in the making, so don’t expect any pre-fight handshakes from these two battle-tested, 145-pound wrecking machines. On Friday evening we’ll know who’s the best bare knuckle fighter in Montana – both fighters call Great Falls home – and more importantly who’s the baddest man in the BKFC’s fully loaded featherweight division. Neither Stewart or Lopez are looking for anything less than a knockout.
The judges shouldn’t be necessary for Friday’s Co-Main Event either.
After scoring a jaw-dropping, 14-second KO in his Squared Circle debut in October, five-time Bellator MMA vet Lloyd "Cupcake" Mix looks to climb to 2-0 against Dallas Davison in welterweight action. Davison is 2-1 under the BKFC banner, with both of his victories coming by stoppage. Don’t blink.
Friday’s event is filled with fun fights. One bout from this weekend’s offering that simply can’t be missed is the welterweight clash between Billy Wagner (3-0) and Bryce “Baby Yaga” Henry (1-0). All of Wagner’s wins have come by stoppage, and Henry is coming off a KO in his debut. These two combatants also have extensive pro boxing experience – Henry is 6-0 and Wagner is 5-3.
