UFC Hall of Famer and Valor founder Ken Shamrock has laid out the invitation for Jorge Masvidal to compete in bare knuckle action.

Shamrock created a stir recently when he mocked the BMF title fight between Masvidal and Nate Diaz at UFC 244. He felt compared to what he and other UFC veterans had to go through in the nineties, a BMF title meant next to nothing.

However, he meant no disrespect to either competitor as he expanded on those comments:

“I’m not taking anything from them, because all these guys would whip my butt right now,” Shamrock told MMA Fighting. “All I’m saying is compared to what we had to go through, getting kicked in the face, punched in the back of the head with no gloves, no rules, no time limit, four times in one night, yes, it’s funny.”

Shamrock doesn’t believe there’s a need for a belt to signify how much of a BMF someone is. He even proceeded to invite Masvidal to return to his bare knuckle roots by competing at Valor:

“I don’t think we need a belt to tell people there’s a ‘BMF’ – I don’t understand that,” Shamrock added. “Masvidal fought bare-knuckle. He did backyard brawls just like (Kimbo Slice).

“So I say if that’s the case, why doesn’t he try his hand at Valor? We’d love to find out how bad he is.”

Of course, Masvidal is contracted to the UFC so that is highly unlikely as of now. But maybe it’s an option for the future?

What do you think of Shamrock’s comments and invitation?

Bare Knuckle FC continue to add names to their roster but the latest one may be the biggest one yet in Sajad Gharibi. Literally.

Following the BKFC 9 prelim broadcast on Saturday, the promotion ran a promo announcing the debut of Gharibi — otherwise known as “Iranian Hulk.” Gharibi, a bodybuilder, has made a name for himself due to his absurd and giant physique.

He has become a social media sensation as a result with over 450,000 followers on Instagram.

You can see one of his posts below:

The promo had no details on a debut date or an opponent but did include phrases such as “World War III” and “USA vs. Iran” for 2020.

BKFC president David Feldman expanded on the promo later on.

“This guy’s going to make his Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship debut in early 2020,” he said (via MMA Fighting). “We’re going to do a show entitled ‘USA vs. Iran: World War III.’ He’s literally our biggest signing we’ve ever had.

“But he’s going to make his way over to Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship, he’s gonna make a home here, and we expect really, really big things from ‘The Iranian Hulk.’”

What do you think of this signing? Do you think it’ll be a success or a disaster?
