Victory will be sweet for BKFC 42's Rick Caruso

Victory will be worth the wait for Rick Caruso.

After kicking off his BKFC career with three straight defeats, he eagerly returns to action Friday in pursuit of his first win in the Squared Circle against Brandon Bushaw (1-0, 1 KO) at BKFC 42 in Greenville, SC.

“Bare knuckle is awesome,” he says. “This is just so much fun.” 

Caruso doesn’t have goals of winning a World Championship under the BKFC banner. Instead, he’s just having fun – and he’s eager to prove that he’s a better fighter than his BKFC record indicates.

“My career is what it is. I’ve got five kids. I’m a family man, and I’ve got one kid who’s getting college offers now, so it’s about time to start following them,” he says with a chuckle.

“If a win elevates me to a better spot in the division, that’s great. But right now, this victory is more for me. I want that win – that’s why we’re fighting, and that’s what’s most important.”
