Last Saturday, “Rowdy” Bec Rawlings and Alma Garcia made history by becoming the first women to compete in a sanctioned bare-knuckle boxing match in the U.S.
The former UFC fighter picked up a big second-round TKO victory at “Bare Knuckle FC 1: The Beginning”. Being poised as the female face of bare-knuckle boxing, Rawlings has garnered plenty media attention of late– including some praise from UFC megastar Conor McGregor.
“Some great shots. Photo and fist. Tumb positioned perfectly for a bare fist shot. Zero damage to the paws taken. Great work Bec,” commented “The Notorious” one on @allelbows candid photos of Bec’s match.
