  1. KB congrats on the 2-love win… first singles none the less!AJ, can't wait to watch you smash this dude. Also, KB is right, that legit looks like dehydrated pee.I think BKFC is interesting. I think it's harder to watch becasue of the cuts. I know people say that people say fighting with no wraps means you can't hit as hard, but I think I've heard the fighters say they swing just as hard as they do with gloves, but just not as often, so I don't know. I can't lie that I'm lowkey hyped for Paulie vs Artem though, whenever it is. I agree though, for his sake I hope it's not in two months, that's ridiculous.

  3. Jouban hit it right on the nail. Some people might say oh they're fighters like Jouban said, so what? They fight to entertain us yes but they're human beings with a brain that doesn't need to take unnecessary beatings for the sake of empathetic casuals. Also some people are claiming that bare knuckle is less dangerous then fighting with gloves. I have no words for people of that level of stupidity. Combat sports especially mma has come a long way. It didn't reach a high point in the UFC getting the ESPN deal just for some barbaric underground type of fighting to take combat sports 5 steps back. It's an abomination and it's not going to blow up like the BKFC thinks they are. It's too street like for it to go main stream, sorry. No top fighter will join, only guys on their way out, trying to go out with a bang like Jouban said. And I hope it stays that way. That kind of barbaric kind of fighting has no place in combat sports.

    • Can you hit harder with or without the glove? Add in the hand wraps and your hands are significantly more durable. You can throw much more ruthlessly too. Bare you have to land correctly or your hands will look like artems
