BKFC star Houston Alexander tells that if Conor McGregor ever engaged in combat in a ring sans gloves, the man would be a problem.
About Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC)
Since 1889, the only organization entitled to host a nationally recognized, sanctioned, and licensed bare knuckle event is the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC). Former professional boxer David Feldman founded the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) in Philadelphia with the goal of upholding the traditions of bare-knuckle combat while prioritizing fighter safety. All BKFC’s bouts take place in a state-of-the-art circular four-rope ring designed to encourage exciting contests. Fighters had to “toe the line” and begin every round face-to-face and within a few inches of one another according to the Broughton Rules, which governed bare-knuckle combat in the 19th century. Based on these guidelines, the distinctive BKFC “Squared Circle” features scratch lines.

What Houston Alexander has to Say about Conor McGregor
Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship star Houston Alexander tells a source that the great Conor McGregor would be a huge problem if he ever engaged in combat sports in a ring without gloves.
Alexander, a former UFC and Bellator fighter who has been competing professionally without mitts since 2021, thinks there would be no issues if The Notorious were to someday transition from the UFC to the BKFC since Conor is so skilled with his hands.
Naturally, the subject came up since, after witnessing Mike Perry’s BKFC match versus Luke Rockhold on April 30, Conor certainly seemed interested in switching from UFC to BKFC. You may remember that after the fight, McGregor entered the ring and appeared willing to challenge Perry without gloves in the future.
Despite Conor’s lack of experience fighting without gloves, Alexander plainly thinks they’d have a fantastic battle. This sounds like quite the praise considering how little he thinks of most MMA fighters.
Alexander pleaded with you not to take part in this form of sport if you have MMA fighters who just concentrate on kicking or jiu-jitsu. Because then your boxing will be on display and you’ll be wounded.
Alexander’s personal fighting career is still going strong at 51 years old; he faces Jeremy Smith in another significant BKFC match on May 19. He assures us he has no plans to retire any time soon.
I’m aware that Father Time is unbeatable, he remarked. “We already know this. But till then, enjoy me, dude, and let me hold Father Time off a little while.
