By Tom Taylor - February 3, 2019

Last night, Bare Knuckle Fighting Championships (BKFC) — not to be confused with WBKFF — touched down in Cancun, Mexico with BKFC 4. The card was billed as a USA vs. Mexico event, as each matchup pitted an American fighter against a Mexican fighter or fighter of Mexican heritage.

In the main event, all-action UFC veteran Leonard Garcia made a return to the ring against infamous Ultimate Fighter veteran Julian Lane. Leonard Garcia won this BKFC 4 main event showdown by second round knockout.

In the co-main event, former UFC strawweight and flyweight contender Bec Rawlings — the so-called Queen of Bare Knuckle — picked up yet another victory, thumping Cecilia Flores to a lopsided unanimous decision victory, defending the Police Gazette Diamond Belt and winning the WBF Latin America belt.
