Roy Nelson makes his bare knuckle debut against Dillon Cleckler at tonight's Gamebred Bareknuckle MMA.

Now retired UFC star Jorge Masvidal had his Gamebred Bareknuckle MMA fight card go down tonight (May 5th) from Fort Lauderdale, Florida with a handful of familiar faces from long ago. The marquee matchup of the evening was UFC/Bellator veteran Roy Nelson making his bare knuckle debut against someone with fewer fights, but more bare knuckle experience, Dillon Cleckler.

For the co-main event, PFL veteran Emiliano Sordi met ex-UFC fighter Markus Perez. There were also several other notable names from MMA history, such as former UFC welterweight Anthony Njokuani, former UFC heavyweight Carl Seumanutafa, and even the 43-year-old longtime MMA menace, Charles Bennett.

The Gamebred Bareknuckle MMA entire event went down at the FLA Live Arena.
