Paige VanZant and Rachael Ostovich run it back tonight sans gloves in the main event of BKFC 19. The event starts at 7PM ET live from the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, FL. Heavyweights Arnold Adams and Michael Terrill serve as the co-main event.
Also on the card is Britain Hart, who beat VanZant when she made her bare knuckle debut in February. Hart will be taking on Jenny Savage. Also on the undercard is rapper Blueface who will be fighting 21-year-old TikTok star Kane Trujillo aka ‘Neumane’.
Dakota Olave, another TikTok celebrity, will also be on the card. He’s fighting someone named Evil Hero.
Honestly, who knows what this under card may bring. But in the main event we’ll see two women who previously fought each other under the bright lights of the UFC Octagon. When they faced each other, at 2019’s UFC Fight Night 143 in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, it was VanZant who left with her hand raised. She beat Ostovich that night by second round submission.
There’s no submissions allowed tonight, though. So we’ll have to watch and see what happens when the gloves come off. This is VanZant’s second ever bare knuckle bout. Ostovich is making her bare knuckle debut.
