Conor McGregor becomes part owner of Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC)

Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor announced through social media that he is now a part owner of Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC).

Saturday night’s announcement was played live during the promotion’s KnuckleMania 4 fight card on pay-per-view and aligns the world’s most notorious mixed martial artist with the number one bare knuckle promotion in the world.

“’The Notorious’ Conor McGregor here. Ladies and gentlemen, the huge announcement that I have for you today, Conor McGregor myself and McGregor Sports and Entertainment is now an owner of Bare Knuckle Fighting Championships,” McGregor said in a video. “Welcome to the big leagues. David Feldman, baby, we did it.”

With McGregor on board, the Irish superstar’s company McGregor Sports and Entertainment becomes a part owner of BKFC, with Triller remaining the majority shareholder in BKFC.

“Look, you’ve got the biggest guy in all of combat sports right now as a part owner of our company,” Feldman said during the BKFC KnuckleMania 4 broadcast. “I think it’s just going to move the needle tremendously. We’re going to do a lot of big things. We’re going to open up a lot of new markets.

“Look, we’re partners with Conor McGregor. Everybody in the combat sports world, everybody in the world knows who that guy is. So Conor, thank you and let’s blow this shit up.”

McGregor returns to the UFC this summer during International Fight Week when he faces Michael Chandler at UFC 303.
