Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship is only days away from its biggest event to date this Saturday with BKFC 41, which is a co-main event headlined by two former UFC champions in Luke Rockhold and Eddie Alvarez.
The combat sport promotion is only five years old, yet it has displayed remarkable growth.
