How To Live Stream BKFC 6 From Tampa
BKFC 6 is set to take place tonight (Sat., June 22nd, 2019) at the Florida Fairgrounds in Tampa. The main headliner bout between former boxing champ Paulie Malignaggi and former UFC contender Artem Lobov is anticipated to be a highly entertaining event. In the co-main UFC veteran Chris “the Crippler” Leban MMA will meet a late replacement veteran, Dakota Cochrane.
This will mark the sixth event with the promotion, and its fanbase and notoriety are increasing. To date, some notable names to step inside the trademarked squared circle include Chris Leban, Johny Hendricks, Phil Baroni, Leonard Garcia, and Jason Knight.
With the rise of underdogs winning fights lately it seems as though Lobov has lady luck on his side. Joshua vs. Ruiz, Smith vs. Gustaffson, Alverez vs. Nastyukhin, Pettis vs Thompson, Poirier vs. Holloway, shall I go on?
Lobov as of Friday is a +185 underdog, and Malignaggi is -235.
Malignaggi is not known as a hard puncher and has 44 total fights with only seven knockouts. Expect Paulie to come in with his low front guard snapping in jabs and mixing up punches. A decision win is most likely for Malignaggi Saturday night.
Lobov seems to be at an advantage in this fight as he has already competed in BKFC once before, so he understands the feel of the ring along with hitting and being hit with bare knuckles. He also has more experience with grappling, and in this event, clinching is legal, so anticipate plenty of dirty boxing. Expect Lobov to stick to dirty boxing, clinching, staying in the pocket, and pressuring Paulie.
Should Malignaggi win, would this be beneficial for Dana White to have his first main event under Zuffa boxing headlining McGregor VS Malignaggi? Or if Lobov wins would it end the beef between both parties?
