BKFC 7 Results: Alers Batters Garcia, Sherman Unseats Adams

On Saturday, Aug. 10, Bare Knuckle Fighting Championships hosted its seventh event from the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Miss.

In the night’s main event, former UFC veterans Leonard Garcia and Jim Alers clashed in a featherweight contest. Garcia was originally scheduled to face fellow former UFC fighter Jason Knight. However, Knight pulled out of the bout due to injury.

In the co-main event of the evening, BKFC heavyweight champion Arnold Adams defended his title against UFC veteran Chase Sherman, who had reeled off three straight victories by first-round knockout since being released by the UFC.
