Bantamweight championship bout between the defending champion Johnny Bedford and challenger Jarod Grant was confirmed by Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship and is expected to headline BKFC Fight Night New York 2 card on March 12th.
“Brutal” Johnny Bedford (6-1 BKFC) is one of the most experienced bare-knuckle fighters in the promotion having completed 7 bouts to date. A former MMA fighter, Bedford is famous for his participation on The Ultimate Fighter: Team Bisping vs. Team Miller, where he managed to win 2 of his bouts before suffering a defeat to John Dodson. “Brutal” has 3 finishes to his name in the BKFC, and is a former BKFC lightweight champion. His last bout at BKFC 20 saw him defeat Reggie Barnett, Jr. in a 5-round fight for the bantamweight title.
Jarod “Kid Gatti” Grant (4-0 BKFC), the youngest fighter to ever be signed to BKFC took the bantamweight division by storm winning all 4 of his fights by the way of KO/TKO. With dynamite in his hands and in-your-face fighting style, Grant is quickly becoming one of the most feared guys in BKFC. “Kid Gatti” was last seen at BKFC 18 where he gave the durable Travis Thompson his first KO/TKO loss. He will be looking to do the same to the 39-year-old Johnny Bedford and get the bantamweight strap wrapped around his waist.
BKFC Fight Night New York 2 is will take place on March 12th in Seneca, New York. So far only a fight between Johnny Bedford and Jarod Grant has been confirmed, but more will surely be coming in the near future.
