In the last 16 months BKFC has exploded into the combat sports scene, gaining more traction than most media ever expected as they have signed some huge names that most causal fans are familiar with like Chris Leben, Paulie Malignaggi, Bec Rawlings, Leonard Garcia, Julian Lane and many more. Now after their 5th event, headlined by two former UFC fighters, Artem Lobov and Jason Knight its caused a lot of fans to ask questions about the safety of the sport and how long these fighters can take this type of damage especially at the age most of them are currently at.
For years fighters have always said how the gloves don’t really protect theur heads but rather are there to protect their hands, and after watching a few bare knuckle fights this has become very clear but we still want to know one question!
“Is bare knuckle fighting causing more damage over MMA or Boxing?”
Former UFC and Ultimate Fighter season 10 veteran James McSweeney educates fans on the difference between damage cause by wearing gloves and damage caused by no gloves and the answer may shock you in this short to the point 4 min video below!!!!
