We hope to continue to give everyone what the have come to expect from us, non stop action. As a fan I can’t wait to see these fights on October 20, it another great fight card.”
Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship 3 will be held on Saturday, October 20 and pairs tournament finalists Arnold Adams up against Sam Shewmaker.
Shewmaker defeated Maurice Jackson by way of split decision at the Bare Knuckle FC 2 semi-finals. Also, Arnold Adams defeated Joey Beltran via TKO (doctor’s stoppage).
Christine Ferea, who was to make her organizational debut at Bare Knuckle FC 2, will return to take on Jennifer Tate. Ferea’s fight last month was scrapped after the state’s athletic commission realized that her opponent had been knocked out in a contest less than 30 days prior to their scheduled fight.
Ultimate Fighter season 3 winner Kendall Grove who defeated Bruce Abramski via unanimous decision makes his way back to the ring to take on Marcel Stamps.
Also, five quarter finals fights are set for the night in the lightweight division.
