While it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, bare-knuckle combat sports have taken on a life of their own as of late. In the last couple of years, boxing and MMA have both implemented the bare-knuckle style, especially when it comes to Jorge Masvidal’s Gamebred brand.

He’s always been a fan of the style and has put on a string of events in association with that. One man who has tested the waters in this field is none other than Junior dos Santos, the former UFC heavyweight champion.

There are some notable names in there but, of course, many are interested to see what dos Santos still has left in the tank. The same goes for Alan Belcher, who has had some notable moments of his own since leaving the UFC.

It goes without saying that bare-knuckle isn’t for everyone. At the same time, it’s the kind of novelty that can draw in a lot of casual fans.
