Although former UFC fighter Bec Rawlings has been enjoying time as a bare knuckle boxer ever since she was released by the UFC, Rawlings has her sights on a return to MMA and has some potential suitors.
Rawlings recently spoke to Fightful and talked about how her time sa a bare knuckle boxer and how it has impacted her career. After her bare knuckle boxing debut in June, Rawlings revealed that she was contacted by a number of MMA companies about bringing her in. Rawlings did not specify which company has reached out to her, but she did say she would like to return to Invicta FC, where she first started fighting MMA in the United States.
“A lot of MMA promotions reached out to me after my first fight. I do want to go back to MMA. I’m content with doing both. I still want to fight bare knuckle because I had so much fun. I have the skills to be able to do both. I’ll be back in MMA training after this fight. I’ve been talking to a few a promotions. I really like Invicta FC. It’s where I started off in the U.S.," Rawlings said.
The former Ultimate Fighter alumni started her pro career fighting in Australia, but was then signed by Invicta to compete in the United States. Rawlings' Invicta debut came in the form of a strawweight title shot against Carla Esparza. But Rawlings' time in Invicta lasted only a year before moving on to the UFC, where she last fought in April at UFC 223.
Since then, Rawlings signed with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championships, where she has won her two fights, both against pro boxers.
