It's BKFC Fight Week in Albuquerque!

It’s Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship Fight Week; BKFC 28 goes down Saturday at Rio Rancho Events Center in Albuquerque, NM, LIVE on the BKFC app.

In the Main Event, two of the baddest women on the planet throw down, as Christine “Misfit” Ferea defends her BKFC World Flyweight Championship for the first time against unbeaten challenger Taylor “Killa Bee” Starling.

Ferea brings a three-fight winning streak into her first title defense. Her record of 5-1 in the Squared Circle is tops all time amongst female BKFC fighters, with four of those wins coming by KO. Starling, meanwhile, has been on an absolute tear since first stepping foot in the Squared Circle last year, jumping out to a spotless 3-0 mark in her bare knuckle fighting career.

In the Co-Main Event, former MMA stars John “The Magician” Dodson and Ryan “Baby Face” Benoit drop the gloves and make their BKFC debuts against each other in the flyweight division.

A former UFC world title challenger, Dodson is known around the world as one of the baddest 125-pound fighters to ever fight in the cage. The 17-time UFC vet is ready to enter the next chapter of his fighting career against Benoit, a nine-time UFC vet who holds a victory over Bellator champ Sergio Pettis and a razor-close, split-decision loss to current UFC world interim flyweight champion Brandon Moreno.

Among many other can’t-miss fights on the card is a welterweight clash between UFC vet Isaac Vallie-Flagg (3-1) and Brad “Machine Gun” Kelly (2-1), plus the returns of lightweight Tony “Loco” Soto (2-0) and middleweight Zion “Z-Man” Tomlinson (2-2).
