Friday night at the BKFC KnuckleMania event, Britain Hart emerged victorious in 125-pound action, defeating Paige VanZant via unanimous decision (49-46, 49-46, 49-46).
Hart improves her bare-knuckle boxing record to 2-2-0 following the big win. The 31-year-old is now on a two-fight win streak following a fourth-round TKO victory over Randine Elkholm last month. Prior to entering the sport of bare-knuckle boxing, Hart had competed as a professional boxer.
VanZant gets her bare-knuckle boxing career started at 0-1-0. The 26-year-old fought for the first time since leaving the UFC last year following a submission loss to Amanda Ribas. Despite losing the fight, VanZant certainly had her moments against Hart, particularly in the fifth and final round.
Bare Knuckle FC: KnuckleMania took place on February 5, 2021, from the RP Funding Center in Lakeland, Florida. The main card was aired live on pay-per-view from 9pm ET.
