Thu, 22 Jul 2021
Miami FL – David Feldman, President, Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship, Daniel Hollaway, co-founder of the Drinkin’ Bros Network, and Michael Weber, COO of FITE announced today they have teamed up to introduce a very special pay-per-view edition of BKFC 19: VANZANT vs. OSTOVICH that will consist of Hollaway, his Drinkin’ Bros co-host Ross Patterson, and UFC Hall of Famer “The Iceman” Chuck Liddell, calling the action on the live bare knuckle fights with custom audio commentary aligned with the official PPV feed– all combined on one screen – exclusively on FITE.
BKFC 19: VANZANT VS OSTOVICH takes place Friday, July 23 starting at 8:00 p.m. ET / 5:00 p.m. PT for $39.99. The special “Drinkin’ Bros” featuring Chuck Liddell edition of BKFC is available for purchase on FITE at (here). This link is also available on The Drinkin’ Bros Instagram and YouTube social media platforms.
“I’m excited to work with FITE and ‘The Drinkin’ Bros to provide this unprecedented live viewing option for fight fans,” said Feldman. “Chuck Liddell is an icon in combat sports, and The Drinkin’ Bros is one of the most outrageous networks ever – we are always up to break boundaries and do things our way – so we feel this a perfect fit for BKFC and we appreciate FITE for stepping up and working tirelessly to make this happen.”
“This weekend, veterans don’t have to drink alone or watch fights alone,” said Hollaway. “We are honored to have this opportunity to present a ‘Drinkin’ Bros edition of BKFC 19 to our fans and followers, and we are beyond excited for the fights. We’ve been big fans of BKFC since the start.”
“FITE prides itself on its streaming technology, media, marketing and partnerships, “ said Kim Hurwitz, FITE’s Chief Marketing Officer. “When this opportunity arose, it seemed like something our FITE fans would enjoy, because we’re fight fans too.”
The BKFC19 main event features the return of the ultra-popular powerhouse striker, Paige VanZant in an epic return match-up with Rachael Ostovich. The pair last fought in MMA, with VanZant winning via second round submission. The co-main event sees a heavyweight title fight between current BKFC Champion Arnold Adams and Thai Boxer and knockout artist, Michael Terrill.
Also part of the live PPV card is Britain Hart in her first fight back since defeating VanZant in her much-hyped entrance to bare knuckle fighting. Hart takes on Jenny “Savage” Clausius, who fans may remember from Dana White’s “Lookin’ for a Fight” web series. In a special attraction, famed rapper and former D2 college quarterback, Blueface (Tiktok: @bluefacebleedem), will make his bare knuckle premier against the comedian and TikTok badboy, Kane Trujillio (@kane).
Tampa favorite Geane Herrera enters the BKFC squared circle once again to take on “The Nightmare” Abdiel Velasquez in a 125 lb. bout, followed by the 125 lb. female matchup Taylor “Killa Bee” Starling vs. Cassie “The Hulk” Robb, who is making her BKFC debut.
