Artem Lobov and Jason Knight’s first bare knuckle fight at BKFC 5 was a huge success. And they will now be running things back again.

The promotion today announced that the pair would rematch in the main event of BKFC 9 which takes place November 16 at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Mississippi. Like the first bout, it will take place with a 146-pound limit.

Lobov, of course, won the first fight in April earlier this year via unanimous decision in a close back-and-forth encounter. The two have teased a rematch since.

“The Russian Hammer” would take part in bare knuckle action again when he outpointed former boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi in a grudge match at BKFC 6 in June. Knight, meanwhile, was supposed to face fellow UFC veteran Leonard Garcia at BKFC 7. However, he had to pull out through injury.

More fights and updates regarding BKFC 9 are expected in the coming weeks.

Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship has taken a big hit. At BKFC 7, Jason Knight was set to take on Leonard Garcia in what would have been a great fight. But, the fight will not happen as Knight announced on social media he has been forced to withdraw due to an injury.

“I suffered a pretty bad rib injury a few weeks back, I’m sorry to announce it, but I won’t be fighting (at) Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship 7 in August…. sorry if I let anyone down!!” — Knight wrote on Twitter.

Jason Knight made his BKFC debut at BKFC 5 in April. There, he was taking on Artem Lobov in what was a phenomenal fight. The two brought the fight to each other and had an action-packed fight until the final bell rang and Lobov won by decision.

Garcia, meanwhile, is 1-0 in BKFC as he fought back at BKFC 4 and beat Julian Lane. The UFC veteran has not fought in MMA since 2014 and it seems like BKFC is his new calling. And, at BKFC 7, he will now be fighting Jim Alers, according to MyMMANews.

Former UFC featherweight Jason Knight is set to make his return to Bare-Knuckle FC action.

During last night’s (Sat. June 22, 2019) BKFC 6 event, it was announced that Knight will be facing fellow former UFC star Leonard Garcia at the BKFC 7 event. The show will take place from Biloxi, Mississippi on August 10. BKFC president David Feldman announced the matchup himself.

Garcia is a former UFC, WEC, and Legacy FC veteran who hasn’t competed in mixed martial arts (MMA) competition since 2014. He also competed in professional boxing back in 2005, suffering a third round defeat to Miguel Ortiz. Garcia made his bare-knuckle debut at BKFC 4 in February, finishing Julian Lane in the second round.

He’ll take on Knight, who was one-half of, arguably, the best BKFC fight in history against Artem Lobov in April. Knight ended his UFC run on a four-fight win streak before signing with the bare-knuckle promotion. He went all five rounds with Lobov, who took home the win on the scorecards via unanimous decision.

Now, he’ll be taking on Garcia in his second-ever bare-knuckle fight in his home state of Mississippi. No other fights have been announced for the BKFC 7 card as of this writing, but we’ll keep you updated.
