On August 20th, BKFC star Charisa Sigala heads to the UK for a historic event to be held at the Ovo Arena in Wembley, England.
On that night, the promotion will put on a stacked card in front of the London crowd featuring a crossover main event as Bellator MMA’s Michael ‘Venom’ Page takes on BKFC’s ‘Platinum’ Mike Perry inside the squared circle. Also on tap for the highly anticipated event is former UFC star Paige VanZant who will make her third appearance for the promotion against scrapper Charisa Sigala.
Charisa Sigala is no stranger to making history with the bare-knuckle organization. She appeared at the inaugural Knucklemania event in 2021 and delivered a Fight of the Year performance with Taylor Starling. Now Sigala has the opportunity to make history again, performing in front of the London crowd. Speaking with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship, Sigala discussed her upcoming trip to London and the showdown with ’12 Gauge.’
“Fighting at Knuckle Mania in 2021 made me a part of that historic event. I didn’t fully recognize the significance of that in my debut, but I’m very aware of it heading into London. This is another huge opportunity to be a part of BKFC history.”
Charisa Sigala Hopes to Make Her Children Proud at BKFC London
Preparing for her upcoming bout at Jackson Wink MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Charisa Sigala is hard at work for the biggest bout of her career. While Paige VanZant is still seeking her first win inside the squared circle, ’12 Gauge’ is a widely recognized name in combat sports and a win over her would certainly raise the stock of Sigala.
However, Sigala is not just gunning for a victory to bolster her resume. She’s fighting for a much bigger purpose; her children. Speaking to BKFC, Sigala discussed the importance of establishing her legacy in the sport to show her kids the importance of self-confidence.
“Being a part of history, and having that legacy, is important to me because of my kids,” Sigala said. “For example, hearing my son talk about his wrestling, and asking me how I do what I do in front of so many people, it gives him that confidence in himself and in his sports. That means the world to me.”
