UFC vet Jason Knight in violent bathroom fight with two men – WITH NEW VIDEO
There’s no doubting Jason Knight’s toughness, certainly not after this weeks viral bar fight video.
Knight will rematch rival Artem Lobov at Bare Knuckle FC 9 this weekend. Their first fight in April of this year was an instant classic, with many hailing it as one of the best combat sports fights of the first half of 2019. The fight went all five rounds, but in the end Knight lost via a unanimous decision. Both fighters showed real grit, heart and toughness. Ahead of this weekends rematch, we’re reminded why Knight is so efficient without MMA gloves on.

Knight’s friend and training partner Brok Weaver recently posted a video onto his Instagram account, showing Knight getting into a fight with two men in a bathroom stall, apparently part of some bar. While the footage is grainy and shaky, Knight certainly seems to come out relatively uninjured when security intervenes, at least compared to the other two men. See the video below.

Knight debuted in the UFC in 2015, losing a decision to Tatsuya Kawajiri. He then went on a tear, winning four straight fights in the UFC, including victories over Alex Caceres and Dan Hooker. He then ran into Ricardo Lamas, getting KO’d in the first round. He then went on to lose decisions to Gabriel Benitez, Makwan Amirkhani and Jordan Rinaldi. The UFC elected to release Knight from the promotion, on account of his four fight skid.
Since then Knight has only fought in Bare Knuckle FC following his UFC release, with the lone loss to Lobov as his one fight outside the UFC octagon since then.
