Fresh off one of the biggest events in company history, Bare Knuckle FC returns to action on March 19 for a fight card headlined with a competitor well-remembered for all-action brawls during his MMA career.

Leonard Garcia will meet Joe Elmore in the lightweight main event of the evening’s card, which will take place at the Biloxi Civic Center in Mississippi.

During a six-year run in the WEC and UFC, the former WEC featherweight title challenger won six “Fight of the Night” bonuses and one “Knockout of the Night,” including a split-decision victory over Chan Sung Jung at WEC 48 which is regularly name-checked among the greatest fights in MMA history.

Garcia made his BKFC debut in February 2019 and earned a second-round finish of Julian Lane, then lost to Jim Alers in a bout six months later. His opponent, Elmore, is a regional MMA vet with a knockout win over Jerrid Burke at Bellator 88 in his sole major-league appearance. He’s 2-0 in BKFC.

The co-feature bout for the pay-per-view event is a bantamweight matchup between 46-year-old former WBO junior welterweight champion DeMarcus Corley and BKFC mainstay Reggie Barnett Jr.

“Leonard Garcia against Joe Elmore is a true bad-blood match and perfect for our main event,” BKFC president David Feldman said. “Both guys have wanted to fight each other for a long time and both have promised to finish the other in striking fashion. DeMarcus Corley is a former world champion boxer who has fought numerous big names over the last twenty years and surely will be tested by Reggie Barnett Jr. who is excited to welcome him to BKFC.”
