Saturday’s Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship event has lost a fight.
Multiple people with knowledge of the promotion’s plans confirmed to MMA Fighting that the fight between Taylor Starling and Randine Eckholm will no longer take place at BKFC Fight Night: Montana.
Per sources, Eckholm missed weight for the flyweight bout on Friday, coming in at 133 pounds. She was given the opportunity to weigh back in on Saturday morning and came in at 141 pounds. Eckholm was then examined and was deemed unable to compete by the commission.
Starling subsequently reacted to the news of her bout being pulled and expressed her disappointment in the situation.
Starling has become one of the promotion’s rising stars, earning a unanimous decision against Charisa Sigala in a blood and guts war at KnuckleMania in February. “Killa Bee” built upon that momentum in June when she disposed of Cassie Robb in just 28 seconds at BKFC 19.
