BKFC 57 is live Friday February 2, 2024 from Hollywood, Florida starting at 8PM ET. Check below for my BKFC 57 Main Event prediction.

Luis Palomino (9-0 BKFC) Vs Austin Trout (1-0 BKFC, 37-5 Boxing)

In the final fight of the night in Hollywood, Luis “Baboon” Palomino, the most accomplished fighter in BKFC history, is hungry to add to his one-of-a-kind resume with a record 10th straight victory over former World Boxing Association champ Austin “No Doubt” Trout in their showdown for the vacant BKFC World Welterweight Championship.

Palomino is the only fighter in BKFC history to win their first nine bouts in the Squared Circle, and a 10th straight triumph over Trout will all but solidify his status as the most celebrated bare knuckle fighter of all time. Standing in Palomino’s way is Trout, the most accomplished gloved boxer to ever transition to BKFC.

One way or the other, combat sports fans around the world will know with certainty who is the best welterweight in bare knuckle fighting.

In my prediction, Luis Palomino will retain the belt. He has tremendous more BKFC experience which is a big factor in this fight. Austin Trout has only had 1 BKFC bout and it was against an old washed Diego Sanchez.

My only concern is that Luis Palomino is now 43 years old and sooner or later we will see him start to slow down, but I don’t think that will happen just yet. As we all know father time is undefeated.

I believe Luis Palomino will get a stoppage win, and I predict it will come in the third round.

Prediction: Luis Palomino ML (-145)
