There’s Bare Knuckle FC action this Friday, and the main event is one of the promotion’s highest profile to date.
A little over two years ago, Paige VanZant submitted Rachael Ostovich by armbar on the main card of the UFC’s first ESPN show. It was VanZant’s final win in the UFC and both of their penultimate appearances inside the Octagon. Now they’re both doing bare knuckle boxing and they are set to rematch in Tampa, Florida.
For Ostovich, this will be her first career bare knuckle boxing match after going 4-6 in MMA. VanZant made her BKFC debut this past February and dropped a unanimous decision to Britain Hart, so both women will look to get their first bare knuckle W when they fight two days from now.
Wednesday marked the press conference for the card, and you can watch the main event staredown at the top of the page.
Bloody Elbow will have coverage of BKFC 19 on Friday at 9 PM ET/6 PM PT.
