That first BMF title fight was, by all accounts, a blockbuster.
The fight was so significant inside the combat sports bubble that it caused the delay of a massive boxing match between Canelo Alvarez and Sergey Kovalev—much to the chagrin of boxing fans.
That outcome was not popular among fight fans, who were as vocal as ever in their displeasure in the days and weeks following the card, but eventually, we all moved on.
The BMF title looked like it would go down in history as a somewhat silly, but undeniably entertaining one-off spectacle.
Allow us, dear fight fans, to enlighten you as to why that’s the case.
