Former UFC competitor Sarah Frota is set to compete in one of the most brutal underground combat sports organizations in the world this summer.
The DWCS alum had previously competed as both a strawweight and flyweight under the UFC banner, but after back-to-back losses and being slapped with a two-year suspension by USADA after testing positive for banned substances, the promotion parted ways with the Brazilian. Frota has only competed three times since her UFC release, but she’s about to make her fourth appearance for the controversial combat sports entity Come 4 Blood.
Sarah Frota Will Try Her Hand in a Fight With No Rules or Regulations
Based in the UK, Come 4 Blood is a bare-knuckle battleground where there are no rounds, no ring, and practically no rules. Held in an undisclosed location, C4B has come under fire for making some fairly gruesome actions, such as eye gouging, perfectly legal under their “rule set.” The fight club does have referees presiding over each encounter, but their involvement is limited at best.
Sarah Frota won the first nine fights of her mixed martial arts career, including a first-round knockout of Maiara Amanajás on Dana White’s Contender Series in 2018. ‘A Treta’ failed to live up to the hype, dropping two straight to Livinha Souza and Gillian Robertson before being unceremoniously released. Shortly after, Frota returned to her native Brazil where she lost two more fights before getting back into the win column with a knockout of Larissa Moura in late 2021.
Bare-knuckle fighting has grown in popularity over the last few years with the emergence of Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship. Founded by David Feldman, BKFC has attracted some big names to his promotion, including Chad Mendes, John Dodson, Paige VanZant, and even Bellator’s Michael ‘Venom’ Page who competed in a cross-promotional clash with ‘Platinum’ Mike Perry last year. Of course, BKFC is fully sanctioned and maintains a litany of rules to help protect their fighters.
Come 4 Blood is essentially human cockfighting.
