WBKFF: Hotel, Personnel Still Not Paid After 9 Weeks

The cost of operating World Bare Knuckle Fighting Federation and putting on the organization’s first card more than two months ago seems to grow with each passing week. The looming question, will the bills ever be paid? News continues to spread in regards to monies owed to both fighters and WBKFF staff. Yet each time an apology or explanation is put forth, more and more horror stories are uncovered.

The inaugural WBKFF fight card was held Nov. 8, 2018 in Casper, Wyoming, and here we are, more than two months since the event and it appears as if most, if not all of the competitors are yet to receive any pay.

The WBKFF promotion is owned and operated by Tomasz Stankiewicsz. While UFC Hall of Famer Bas Rutten, who assumed the role of WBKFF President, has issued several explanations on social media, and even provided a statement where he alleged that some fighters have received partial payment, only a few competitors are willing to confirm or backup the comment.
