Also on Saturday, "Royal" Ryan Reber, the #1 contender in the BKFC bantamweight (135-pound) division, looks to solidify the next shot at BKFC gold when he takes on the fast-rising Quintan "The Hitman" Hoye...

BKFC 61 also features Boston’s own Zach "Shark Attack" Calmus going for his third straight stoppage victory against Connor "The Irish Warrior" McKenna in heavyweight action.

Former Team USA Olympic judoka Rick "Genghis" Hawn makes his BKFC debut against Scott "Scotty Bombs" Lampert in the welterweight (165-pound) division.
