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.
