BKFC Thailand 1 “The Game Changer” is brought to you by Nick Chapman, former MMA Champion and CEO of BKFC Thailand, and his associates. He is a prominent figure in the Thailand fight scene. Often refereeing large scale fights, promoting events, managing fighters and contributing to the growth and excellence of the Thailand combat sports fight scene. His current focus is building the BKFC brand in Thailand and across Asia.

BKFC is a globally recognized organization, thanks to the efforts of bare-knuckle President and CEO, Dave Feldman. BKFC has reached new heights in the USA, Europe and Russia through staging exhilarating, fast-paced bare-knuckle fighting events.

Thailand, the birthplace of the world’s most devastating combat sport, Muay Thai, is uniquely primed to adopt BKFC, the world’s fastest-growing combat sport. Muay Thai fighters are already familiar with close-quarter hand to hand combat as Muay Thai incorporates clinching (plum), grappling, hand fighting and striking using punches, simultaneously.

While these remain foreign concepts in western boxing and most other martial arts, these techniques are legal under the BKFC rules, giving MT fighters several distinct advantages in BKFC’s unique arena: The Squared Circle.

Muay Thai fighters have been fighting bare-knuckle or with roped hands for hundreds of years. Thai people are some of the toughest and fiercest fighters on the planet, we believe we will be seeing world champions in BKFC coming out of Thailand very soon

Unlike MMA’s cage or a conventional four-sided boxing ring, BKF (Bare Knuckle Fighting) takes place in a unique circular roped stage.
