1 Like

Jorge Masvidal’s Gamebred Bareknuckle MMA is still in its infancy, but the former UFC star continues to attach notoriety to his budding promotion by bringing in notable names.

The next installment of Gambred Bareknuckle MMA takes place Friday, Nov. 10 at Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Miss. and features a dozen (and counting) former UFC fighters, including a former headliner, a “TUF” winner, and more.

Should the promotion keep with the rhythm of its past events, the card will stream live and free on YouTube.

Below, check out which UFC notables of yesteryear are competing on the card:

Alan Belcher

MMA record: 18-8
UFC record: 9-6
Years in UFC: 2006-2013
Gamebred fight: Heavyweight bout vs. Roy Nelson (23-19) – for vacant heavyweight title

Since his UFC departure… Alan Belcher went on an eight-year hiatus from combat sports competition. In 2021, he returned but in boxing. The gloves quickly came off as Belcher went 4-0 in bareknuckle boxing and 1-0 in bareknuckle MMA. He recently departed BKFC and finished influencer Chase DeMoor in an exhibition boxing match.


Holy hell!! I haven’t seen that dude in a while. Would’ve never guessed that was him. Alan got swoll

He’s easier to recognize when that horrendous tattoo is visible!


Big fuck up on BKFC’s part letting Alan Belcher go.

The cleckler vs Nicholson fight is a rematch. Cleckler was getting a push on the local scene to possibly go to the UFC, and got KO’d by nichsolon off of a spinning back fist. He didn’t fight for years after that.
