I guess at least Sokoudjou won’t be able to gimmick his gloves for this event. He must be gutted
Ah this is at an Indian reservation. I was wondering what athletic commission would sanction a bare knuckle 1 night tourney.
They better have a couple alternates ready. I expect at least one of the first round winners to be too busted up for a second fight.
It's kind of funny that Ken and Bas Rutten--two MMA pioneers and rivals in the earliest days--are both involved in BKB. But I seriously hope Ken doesn't accept Mark Coleman's challenge. Neither one of them need any more CTE.
shitshow written all over it
im kinda stoked to watch this
Kens a legend. I wish him the best of luck in his venture.
I'd like to see him make some money. Despite being a pioneer of the sport, it sounds like he's had a bunch of unsuccessful ventures. That's why he kept fighting until he was almost 50. If he and Frank didn't have a falling out, I think they could've opened more Lion's Dens and started an early chain of gyms. They were really the first cross-training gym for NHB/MMA.
Looks like a train wreck. I'm in.
Mighty mo ftw
Mo going to sleep some dudes
HAND OF GODBEER
Godbeer vs. Sokoudjou: MMA's best last name vs one of the hardest last name's to spell
Aren't there a bunch of old guys like Wes Sims and Mark Coleman on this card or was that BS?
How is this legal LOL
I expect people to not get paid
Its not that much worse than the other bareknuckle events. Its not that Lobov is a world beater. Rameau and Mighty Mo are definitely on his level even if they are 90years old
But I just dont trust Shamrock. He is such a snake oil salesman. Not sure if this will end in paid fighters.
I could definitely see bare naked taking over where bare knuckle left off here in a few years
Bareknuckle tournament is a terrible idea. Fighters take so much surface damage from bare knuckle that it's going to have a massive impact on successive bouts, and there is a high chance of fighters winning and then dropping due to cuts.
Mcsweeney on this card as well
I'd watch for Sokoudjou and just soak it in.
