Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) returns this Saturday, October 20 with a historic night of action as the first ever legally regulated and sanctioned championship bare knuckle fight ever will pit Sam Shewmaker against Arnold Adams in the BKFC heavyweight tournament final live on pay-per-view from the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Mississippi.
In addition to crowning the first heavyweight champion of BKFC, the quarterfinals of the BKFC lightweight tournament will launch and begin the road towards crowning another BKFC champion. The heavyweight final will feature Shewmaker, an undefeated professional boxer, taking on MMA veteran Adams in a clash of styles that should thrill fight fans everywhere.
Adams debuted at BKFC 1 with a performance that saw him bloody D.J. Linderman early before eventually forcing him to concede after two rounds. Adams continued to do damage at BKFC 2 when he met up with Joey Beltran in another fight that featured Adams opening up a big cut on his opponent that would eventually lead to the doctor stopping the fight in favor of Adams.
