If you’re planning to tune in to Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship 6, tomorrow, Saturday, June 22, from Tampa, you’ll notice something in the middle of the Squared Circle that fight fans have been anxiously awaiting to hear. Jason Knight’s BKFC return has been confirmed! While many were hoping that Knight would get his crack at the winner of Artem Lobov versus Paulie Malignaggi, it was just confirmed that Knight will be taking on fellow ex-UFC alumni Leonard Garcia at BKFC 7, Saturday, August 10th, from Biloxi, Mississippi.
Jason Knight’s much anticipated return comes after what some are calling the greatest combat sports event of all-time, a blood-soaked slug-a-thon decision loss to Conor McGregor’s notorious henchman, Artem Lobov. Knight was hopeful to return to BKFC on this card, and his diligence has paid off as the organization has found his next opponent.
Knight will be facing Texas native and BKFC veteran Leonard Garcia. Garcia’s last appearance in the Squared Circle was a 2nd-round TKO victory over Julian Lane at BKFC 4 on February 2nd of this year.
