It's BKFC Fight Week in Omaha!

Monday, May 15 2023 by BKFC Staff

Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship returns to Omaha, NE for the fourth time this week, as BKFC 43 goes down Friday under the bright lights at Liberty First Arena, LIVE on The BKFC App.

In the Main Event, red-hot hometown fighter Houston “The Assassin” Alexander looks to climb to 4-0 under the BKFC banner against his toughest challenge yet, Jeremy “Pitbull” Smith (3-1), in the stacked BKFC cruiserweight division. Alexander, 51, has been Midwest fighting royalty since his days in the UFC, and he’s been unstoppable since joining BKFC in 2021, bringing home knockout victories in all of his first three fights. Smith, a MMA champion in his native South Africa before signing with BKFC in 2021, is riding high with three straight wins, with two of those victories coming by stoppage. The winner of this fight could very well be next in line for a shot at BKFC World Cruiserweight Champion Lorenzo “The Juggernaut” Hunt (9-1) – Alexander is the No. 2-ranked contender in the division, and Smith occupies the third spot.

A pair of battle-tested, fan-favorite middleweight contenders – Dakota Cochrane and Noah Cutter – square off in the Co-Main Event. Both fighters bring a wealth of experience in the Squared Circle to this highly anticipated showdown. Cochrane’s 4-2 record includes three knockouts, and Cutter’s BKFC career includes eight bouts and three knockout victories.

Friday's Feature Fight is a hotly anticipated lightweight showdown between Sean "P-Town" Wilson (2-1, 1 KO) and Brandon Meyer (1-0, 1 KO). Also at BKFC 43 is the return of former BKFC World Lightweight Champion Elvin “El Bandido” Brito (5-3, 1 KO), former BKFC World Women’s Flyweight Championship challenger Taylor “Killa Bee” Starling (3-1, 1 KO), and much more.
