Sports fans around the globe are counting down the seconds to Saturday, Dec. 2, when the BIGGEST event in Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship history goes down at the Maverik Center in Salt Lake City, UT, LIVE on The BKFC App.
In the can’t-miss BKFC 56 Main Event, "Platinum" Mike Perry (3-0) battles fellow fighting icon Eddie "The Underground King" Alvarez (1-0) for the inaugural BKFC King of Violence championship belt. Perry has quickly established himself as the face of BKFC, and Alvarez, a former UFC champion, is his toughest challenge yet. All eyes will be on the world-famous Squared Circle as these two combat sports legends toe the line in the biggest, and final, BKFC Main Event of 2023.
In the BKFC 56 Co-Main Event, “Big” Ben Rothwell looks to smash his way to 3-0 in the Squared Circle with a third straight stoppage victory over the debuting Todd Duffee in their highly anticipated heavyweight showdown. Both men are known for their impressive MMA careers in the cage, but only one of these heavyweight wrecking machines can spring to bare knuckle fighting superstardom with a highlight-reel victory on Saturday night.
In the BKFC 56 Feature Fight, the champ Christine “Misfit” Ferea and Bec "Rowdy" Rawlings collide in a must-see rematch for Ferea’s BKFC World Women’s Flyweight Championship. Ferea was victorious in her first matchup with Rawlings earlier this year, but Rawlings has been working tirelessly for her shot at revenge in the Squared Circle. A victory for Rawlings would be the biggest win for any female fighter in BKFC history, as Ferea’s body of work is unmatched. After her stoppage victory over Rawlings earlier this year, Ferea improved to 7-1 under the BKFC banner. Ferea is the owner of the longest winning streak in BKFC history among female fighters (five), and no female fighter has more stoppage victories than Ferea’s six.
The youngest champion in BKFC history, 23-year-old Kai “Hefty Bag” Stewart, is ready to defend his BKFC World Featherweight Championship for the first time against challenger Howard “HD” Davis (5-1-1). Stewart is undefeated in his first four BKFC fights, and the only Featherweight Champion in the organization’s history. Davis has also been exceptional in his fights under the BKFC banner, and now he’s hungry to prove he’s the division’s uncrowned king.
The BKFC World Heavyweight Championship is also on the line at BKFC 56 on Saturday as former champ Arnold “Bomaye” Adams (7-2) takes on Mick Terrill (6-1) in a hotly anticipated rematch for the vacant title. Since his Squared Circle debut at BKFC 1 in 2018, Adams is the most dominant heavyweight in BKFC history, and he’s eager to earn back his title with a sixth KO in the Squared Circle. Terrill is keen on avenging his 2021 loss to Adams and becoming the first British heavyweight champion in BKFC history with a third straight stoppage victory.
BKFC 56 also features a must-see lightweight clash between former MMA stars Jimmie "El Terror" Rivera (1-0-1) and the debuting Jeremy "Lil' Heathen" Stephens, as well as the return of fast-rising prospects Keegan Vandermeer (2-0), Esteban “Mohawk” Rodriguez (2-1) and Erick “El Travieso” Lozano (1-2).
