Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship President David Feldman recently joined the Fight Bananas podcast to talk about the promotion's upcoming KnuckleMania fight card, Paige Van Zant, Shaq, rankings, and more.
"it was a tough year for everybody, and we got through it," Feldman said of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that put combat sports on a temporary halt in 2020.
"Some of the same stuff we are dealing with now, but we are going to get through it. Our team was really able to re-develop and re-invent itself this year so it was a tremendous year for us," Feldman said.
