Gamebred Bareknuckle MMA: Nelson vs. Belcher Preview

Jorge Masvidal has another Gamebred Bareknuckle MMA show for us this weekend. The event goes down on Friday night and features UFC veterans across the card. The main event is for the promotion’s heavyweight title and features Roy Nelson vs. Alan Belcher.

Nelson has appeared in Gamebred MMA before, destroying Dillan Cleckler with relative ease. Belcher, who was a middleweight in his UFC days, won the BKFC heavyweight title this year but was stripped of the belt for turning down a title defence against Ben Rothwell. Belcher has also gotten in on the cross-over boxing game, beating Chase Moor in Misfits Boxing.

Other notable names on the card include former Bellator champ and UFC action fighter Hector Lombard. He meets Chris Sarro. Longtime UFC vet Francisco Trinaldo is also fighting on the card, facing Sascha Palatkinov.
