Jorge Masvidal has booked the first main event fight for the inauguration of Gamebred Fighting Championships. The organization will feature Bare-knuckle MMA fights.

The main event of Jorge Masvidal bare-knuckle championship will be headlined by former Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship fighters. Jason Knight will bump fists with Charles Bennett on June 18. The event is set to be held in Biloxi, Mississippi. Masvidal announced that he will be launching his own MMA organization in UFC 261 when he took on Kamaru Usman for the welterweight title back in April. This fight under Masvidal’s organization will have fighters going at each other with no gloves, bare-fists, under MMA rules and regulations.

Jason Knight is a veteran of this kind of sport. He was part of the BKFC where he had fought top fighters like Artem Lobov two times. The first time went in Artem’s favor where the second time Jason avenged his loss to the Bare Knuckle fighter. He also has a win against Cliff Wright via submission.

Who will win Jorge Masvidal new promotion?

Jorge Masvidal has two of the best bare-knuckle fighters headlining the inaugural event. Fighting opposite Jason Knight is Charles Bennett who is an entertaining BKFC fighter. The featherweight is one of the most interesting fighters to watch in bare-knuckle fighting. Though he has not won a lot of bouts, he is still rooted for by a lot of fans.

Bennett has a record of 0-3 in the BKFC as he met with two hand injuries in the first two fights and lost via decision against Tyler Goodjohn last December. Both the fighters would like to get a win in their first bout at Gamebred Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship and get that hefty pay check Jorge Masvidal himself. The event can be streamed on on June 18.
