The “Queen of Bare Knuckle,” who previously claimed a title in her debut bout back in 2018, has signed a new deal to return to the promotion.
BKFC officials announced the news on Thursday along with further confirmation from Rawlings’ manager Brian Butler from Suckerpunch Entertainment when speaking to MMA Fighting.
During her previous stint with BKFC, Rawlings went a perfect 3-0 including wins over Alma Garcia, Cecilia Flores and Britain Hart. It was after her last bout and the second defense of her title that Rawlings decided to make a return to mixed martial arts where she signed with Bellator MMA.
Rawlings amassed a 1-1 record with the Viacom owned promotion before parting ways with the organization earlier this year.
Now the Australian born slugger will take off the gloves once again to jump into bare-knuckle competition with a much deeper division than when she left BKFC two years ago.
As of now, Rawlings has not booked an opponent but it’s expected her first appearance back in BKFC will come on Oct. 22.
