The Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship heads to Tampa, Florida on Friday, July 23rd. The preliminary card starts at 7 p.m. ET and the main card starts at 8 p.m. The full event will air via live stream on FITE.tv.
The main event has former UFC flyweight star Paige VanZant taking on previous MMA opponent Rachael Ostovich. In January of 2019 VanZant won via armbar over Ostovich in the UFC, but now they’ll be in the middle of a small boxing ring without gloves. But both are in the main event for their large social media followings as much as their athletic skill.
And the most viewers tonight might be here for the platform battle fights, including rapper Blue Face taking on TikTok star Kane Trujillo. TikTok’ers Evil Hero and Dakota Olave will also battle, as will YouTube star Nick Ireland and Instagram’s DK Money.
