The new fight deal for Chad Mendes has reportedly been in the works for a long time now. The targeted fight debut is October 22nd at the BKFC card in Arizona.

In the one of the promotion’s biggest signings to date, Mendes comes out looking for something new in his career. While he tells Rogan that his MMA career is likely over, Mendes is looking for new life in BKFC doing bare knuckle boxing.

The explosive Mendes has shared the octagon with Jose Aldo, Conor McGregor, Alexander Volkanovski, Frankie Edgar, Clay Guida, Cub Swanson and many more legends of the sport.

BKFC’s Signing Spree

Chad Mendes is just the latest in big name signings for BKFC. The promotion has landed fighters like Paige VanZant, Nico Hernandez, Pearl Gonzales, Rachel Ostovich, Thiago Alves and more. The promotion has given fighters a new way to compete that doesn’t kill their brain cells in the process.

There isn’t a promotion that’s as aggressive and strategic in their signings as Bare Knuckle FC. With the push to go global, BKFC has signed a slew of stars both domestic and abroad. The addition of Mendes only solidifies that even further as the promotion gets even more top talent.

Mendes, who is explosive and showed very good hands in his last few outings, might be the most talented MMA fighter to sign with BKFC and is a perfect fit on the roster. No opponent has been announced for Mendes’ debut just yet.
