Jorge Masvidal’s new bare knuckle fighting promotion, Gamebred Fighting Championships, is beginning to take shape.

GFC’s first show is booked for June 18 in Biloxi, MS. Recently it was announced that headlining that show would be UFC and BKFC veteran Jason Knight. He will is scheduled to take on PRIDE FC veteran Charles ‘Felony’ Bennett.

The co-main event is expected to feature recent UFC veteran Brok Weaver. He was initially scheduled to face LFA fighter Brandon Jenkins, but Jenkins has since been withdrawn from the card.
