So after 4 fights and getting cut a fighter can look forward to 800 dollars when they turn 65..

BKFC is great. Hopefully this encourages more MMA fighters to switch over to bare knuckle.

Certainly a step in the right direction to see a promotion actually thinking about life after fighting.

Sounds good. I worry about the sustainability of BKFC so I hope they're putting them in financial instruments fighters can take with them like a 401k or 403b. I also hope they don't use this deferred compensation scheme to deduct from current compensation.
I remember when that guy went into a coma(induced?) after winning a fight because his larynx was crushed

You said that was RIP for BKFC

I found your post and that thread to get the guys name. Then I tried to look up the guy for updates but came up empty. Wonder how that guy is doing? He deserves some of this pension money.

Ya, I was wondering how it worked out...Props if this is in addition to normal pay...not cool if it is shady or kicking can down the road type of stuff.

It took an incredible amount of effort to find this. This was the only follow up on the story.

Honest question, is this guy, David Feldman, related to Corey Feldman? They look like they could be brothers.
