Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) president David Feldman recently revealed that the promotion is currently pitching a BKFC-based reality TV show to television networks.
In an interview to lowkickmma, Feldman shared that BKFC representatives are at a television conference in New Orleans where they are meeting with various networks to propose the idea for a reality show. He mentioned that the timing of the question about a potential BKFC reality series was “perfect” since these meetings are happening right now.
While full details are still scarce, Feldman provided some insight into what fans could expect from a BKFC reality show. He said it would follow the “journeys” of fighters rather than having a group of competitors living in a house together like in The Ultimate Fighter. The show would give viewers an inside look at what these fighters sacrifice and go through on the path to becoming BKFC athletes.
In addition to focusing on the fighters, Feldman noted that the show would also spotlight some of the staff that makes BKFC events possible. He expressed excitement at the possibility of getting more exposure through a reality series, claiming “I really think we’re gonna get it because these guys have amazing stories.”
A BKFC reality television show could introduce the promotion and sport of bare-knuckle boxing to an entirely new audience. With Feldman meeting face-to-face with TV executives this week to sell them on the concept, an official green light announcement may be coming soon. Stay tuned to see if BKFC is able to secure a reality series in the near future.
