BKFC 20 video: Bobby Taylor knocks out Ronnie Rogers with monster uppercut


Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship’s 20th event kicked off with a bang.

In the opening bout of Friday’s card, lightweight slugger Bobby Jones needed less than a round to knock out Ronnie Rogers with a highlight-reel combination. Jones popped Rogers with a jab, followed that up with a hard right hand, then crushed Rogers with a monstrous right uppercut that put his foe on the canvas for good. The finish led to a grisly sight as blood poured out of a dazed Rogers and painted the BKFC canvas with spatters of crimson.

Watch replay of Jones’ highlight-reel knockout below.

Taylor is now 3-0 in bare-knuckle action after struggling to a 6-11 record in his MMA career.

Prior to his BKFC 20 win, Taylor notched a split decision victory over Louis Hernandez followed by a 65-second knockout of Paul Teague.

He now has all the makings of a surprise contender for the vacant BKFC lightweight title.
