April 29, 2024
The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s biggest star now has a stake in another combat sports organization.

Former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor announced on Saturday night that he is a part owner of Bare Knuckle Fighting Championships. The news was revealed in a video message during the BKFC Knucklemania 4 broadcast.

“’The Notorious’ Conor McGregor here. Ladies and gentlemen, the huge announcement that I have for you today, Conor McGregor myself and McGregor Sports and Entertainment is now an owner of Bare Knuckle Fighting Championships,” McGregor said in the video. “Welcome to the big leagues. David Feldman, baby, we did it.”

According to MMAFighting.com, McGregor Sports and Entertainment becomes a part owner of BKFC, while Triller will remain the majority shareholder. Further details regarding McGregor’s ownership stake were not disclosed.

“Look, you’ve got the biggest guy in all of combat sports right now as a part owner of our company,” BKFC president David Feldman said during the broadcast. “I think it’s just going to move the needle tremendously. We’re going to do a lot of big things. We’re going to open up a lot of new markets.”

McGregor is scheduled to face Michael Chandler in his first fight in approximately three years at UFC 303 on June 29. The Dublin native has expressed interest in bare knuckle boxing in the past, when he attended BKFC 41 in May 2023, faced off with Mike Perry in the ring and speculated about competing for the promotion. Now he figures to be a more regular presence at BKFC events going forward.
