CHAOS erupts at BKFC press conference as stage collapses, fighters brawl.
Things got wild during the Bare Knuckle FC’s (BKFC) recent press conference. Physical outbreaks aren’t uncommon in the combat sports world. We’ve seen some very memorable ones over the years; such as Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor, Michael Chiesa and Kevin Lee, Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier, and so many more.
However, this presser under the BKFC banner is one of the more wild exchanges, in which the stage set was even destroyed in the midst of the chaos that erupted. The presser was to help promote the upcoming February 17 show at the Tingley Coliseum in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It’s headlined by a light heavyweight title unification match between Lorenzo Hunt and Mike Richman.

During the presser, both men began exchanging words before they stood up from their seats. Even though BKFC president David Feldman stood between the pair, it wasn’t enough to settle things down. Hunt and Richman then began throwing strikes at each other, with tables, chairs, and the backdrop all falling down as security jumps in to try and separate the pair.

The main event between Hunt and Richman certainly just became a lot more interesting. KnuckleMania 3 will also feature the BKFC debut of former UFC star Diego Sanchez, as he’ll face off against Austin Trout. Fight fans will certainly have a lot to keep there eye on when the February 17 card comes around.
