    Ya it's MMA with no gloves, that's the only difference

    Well it should definitely be on their actual pro records then. UFC in the early days was bareknuckle, they obviously count. LOL.

    Tapology needs to add these fights to their pro records. Sherdog has it right here.

    At this point we should be labelling One and Rizin custom rules bouts which will not go onto your record, because they don't use the unified rules of MMA. LOL.

    Bareknuckle MMA is MMA and is a pro fight. Wiki doesn't label them on their records either.

    Stupid.

    What do you mean? The Bareknuckle mma bouts for Charles Bennett, Cliff Wright, Jason Knight, etc are included on their records on wikipedia

    Isn't he can be in trouble because of sanctions? I remember someone here posted that Brooks thought that he signed with Khabib's EFC.

    I did think the sanctions might be an issue but Daniel James and Chris Honeycutt are still fighting on ACA cards, so it doesn't seem impossible for US fighters.

    I remember seeing Tony Johnson said that he talked to lawyer and it's something like that -- he is ok because he signed with them before sanctions but if he signs new contract now (after sanctions started to work) - he might be in trouble.
    Also, you know that Popov, HW from your thread fought last week? Event is on Youtube.

    Whiteford was winning his fight with tough journeyman Andrew Fisher imo, but then he got poked in the eye so it was a no contest.

    Nicholson and Emerson both got first round KO's in their Gamebred FC fights.

    Rhys McKee looked good in winning his Cage Warriors fight, best I've ever seen him.

    Norman Parke lost his boxing fight against Mankowski, I'd like to see those two in MMA tbh.



    Rin Nakai is doing some mixed rules bout.

    Mike Kyle is randomly fighting for RUF on the 23rd of the month.

    Last show was kind of a slopfest - I wasn't sure if bouts had the same rules but seemed apt.

    Few nice scraps tho - Watching Crazy Horse and Ivy was sad...

    Tony Johnson is an underrated HW, any promotion would be lucky to pick him up once his contract runs out and he can't resign due to the sanctions.

    Those RUF cards are a mystery and you never know who actually fought on them until weeks later.
