Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship finally has a deep women’s flyweight division. Hardcore fight fans would say it’s quite stacked with all the recent additions. Now it’s time to bring in a BKFC championship for the women to compete for. Not no Police Gazette World Women’s Featherweight Championship (no disrespect).
With no female fights currently booked, it’s time to play matchmaker. Read about the fights BKFC should make next as they continue to build one of their best and most entertaining divisions.
Britain Hart vs. Christine Ferea 2 for inaugural Flyweight Championship
Though their first encounter didn’t go her way, Britain Hart (3-2 BKFC) has since become a fan favorite while racking up a nice 3-fight win streak. One would think with her new-found confidence and savagery, that a second fight with Christine Ferea (4-1 BKFC) would go much different. The fight would be so fitting for a BKFC championship fight…
Since their last scrap, Hart has been active beating Randine Eckholm, spoiling Paige VanZant’s BKFC debut and destroying Jenny Savage in their highly anticipated fight. As for Ferea, she took a loss to Helen Peralta via unanimous decision and beat Calie Cutler and pro boxer in Calista Silgado.
This fight needs to happen for the inaugural BKFC flyweight belt. Both women have proven they are two of the baddest signed in the flyweight division. And two who are all in on making BKFC their career.
Taylor Starling vs. Jenny Savage 2
Though Christine Ferea called Taylor Starling (2-0 BKFC) out after her fight; if I’m Dave Feldman, I’m building “Killa Bee” up more before making that fight. It has money signs written all over it. So until then, let’s run Starling vs. Jenny Savage (1-1 BKFC) back, this time with bare knuckles. The story his already written and it gives Starling a chance at redemption.
If you don’t already know, the two fought in MMA back in 2019. Jenny Savage ended up getting the third-round TKO… Both women are badass and have prove to be great for the promotion. BKFC has so many stars in the flyweight division, this is just another showcase fight they could promote to continue building more women into main event talent.
Rachael Ostovich vs. Jade Masson-Wong
Rachael Ostovich (1-0 BKFC) stunned the world in her BKFC debut, handing PVZ her second loss in the promotion. She proved yet again that she’s more than just a pretty face, and could hang in there with the best of them. As impressive as it was, BKFC should build Rachael up slowly. The perfect next match would be Jade Masson-Wong (1-0 BKFC).
Jade looked great in her debut against Crystal Pittman and building her is also critical. With both having their debuts behind them, it’s time to make a fight to help determine the rankings a bit more. Both women are stunning and would certainly entertain. Book it, Dave!
Randine Eckholm vs. Crystal Pittman
If BKFC wants their women’s division to thrive and succeed, they need to build all the women. Yes, ALL the women. So they have to get some of the girls who are losing to face each other. It can set up a true ranking system and weed out those who should eventually get cut.
With that mentality in mind, a fight between Randine Eckholm (0-1 BKFC) and Crystal Pittman (0-1 BKFC) would be the right next fight. Any woman that steps in the cage is an absolute savage and deserves your respect. This could be a fun fight for the Bare Knuckle fans.
Calista Silgado vs. Pearl Gonzalez
This fight would be a banger! There’s already somewhat of a backstory with Pearl Gonzalez (1-0 BKFC) training with Amanda Serrano. Calista Silgado (0-1 BKFC) fought both Serrano sisters and is now coming into the BKFC world after drawing Christine Ferea in her debut. To be fair, both women deserve to be promoted, but something tells me once a BKFC women’s belt is announced, these two will want their shot at gold first. So, this is the fight to make!
It should go without saying, this would be a banger. Pearl looked phenomenal in her debut and Calista took on the scariest fighter in the division. This fight could have FOTN written all over it.
PVZ vs. Cassie Robb
It doesn’t seem as if Paige VanZant (0-2 BKFC) is in a rush to get into a fist fight again. She’s been having fun in AEW on a weekly basis, while giving her fans consistent content to drool over on her social media platforms. If she does return, let’s build her up and not make her the main event. BKFC has done a terrible job at selecting her fights and getting her prepared for this new sport.
Cassie Robb (0-1 BKFC) is the perfect next fight for PVZ. She also has yet to get a win under the promotion. With both of their first fights out of the way, it’s time for one of them to come out triumphant.
Helen Peralta vs. Charisa Sigala
Helen Peralta (2-0 BKFC) is an absolute beast on the feet and has some fast hands. It’s crazy to think that she has already beaten one of BKFC’s best in Christine Ferea. Currently undefeated in Bare Knuckle Boxing, we hope that Peralta considers going back full-time. She’s a future world champion in BKFC…
Although a beast in the ring, Peralta hasn’t always had the best of luck in MMA. Under the BKFC banner though, very few will be able to stand toe-to-toe with her. Charisa Sigala (1-3 BKFC) is as game as they come, and doesn’t back down from a challenge. So why not put her up against the tough Peralta next?
Sigala’s experience could assist her to victory, but Helen has shown tons of promise. This fight has must-see written all over it.
Jessica Link vs. Isis Verbeek
Jessica’s debut was spoiled by Charisa Sigala recently, so she’s in need of a win. Most of the women in the division have a few fights under their belt. Knowing how critical having that first fight under your belt is, Jessica Link (0-1 BKFC) would need to get built up. So taking on a newcomer would be ideal…
In comes Isis Verbeek (1-0 GFC). We hope that Gamebred Fighting Championship will become a talent feeder to BKFC. After her GFC debut, Isis is certainly one to watch for as the sport continues to make waves in the fight game. This would be a great fight!
