    So after that crazy fight on Saturday night n all the hype behind it, how long before we see bkmma again?

    N if so will it be more popular than regular mma with gloves?

    Nothing is ever gonna be more popular than the UFC. Just the way it is. I think bare knuckle should stick to boxing, stay away from mma.

    UFC or MMA?

    UFC could disappear and MMA would still be fine.

    In some ways it would be better off even.

    Nope. To most MMA fans UFC = MMA.

    Where was the hype outside of Sherdog? Honest question.

    I think it’s all just because of the lobov=goat thing here on sherdog. I think the rest of the world has no idea it happened

    wait, you think bare knuckle boxing is cool and original? are you 13?

    bare knuckle MMA would actually be realistic fighting. Elbows and open hand strikes would be much more common.. as would chokes be.

    Instagram I follow a lot of the mma accounts and even the casuals although a minority crying about the brutality of bkb are all on the Artem express

    You're delusional. The UFC is MMA in the mainstream.

    I know.
    But wouldn't those casuals look for MMA elsewhere if the UFC "died"?

    "Oh, no more UFC. I guess I'll go back to boxing since nobody in the world would come up with the idea of pitting mixed style fighters against each other."

    Are they THAT dumb?

    BKFC needs to be on TV in order to grow. Any network can get it on the cheap right now. Imagine if it was on FS1?

    The lure of boxing back in the day was that fighters in their prime could fight 5-10 fights a year.

    Nowadays things have changed as it does not make as much sense financially and medically for fighters.

    MMA fighters breaking their hands every fight and disfiguring each others' faces would kill the "sport" model of NHB fighting we call MMA and bankrupt the UFC

    If the commissions approve bare knuckle MMA, you won't need another org. The UFC would just be bare knuckle going forward.
