Bec Rawlings returns to BKFC for a rematch vs. Britain Hart on June 24

Bec Rawlings is back in action.

The former UFC, Invicta FC and Bellator fighter has been booked to fight Britain Hart in a rematch at BKFC 26, which is scheduled to take place June 24 at the HardRock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Fla. The promotion announced the booking on Thursday afternoon.

The two flyweight competitors were previously matched up for 13 May at BKFC Fight Night: Omaha, but the bout was canceled due to Hart having a medical emergency.

The bout will be a rematch from 2018, where Rawlings defeated Hart in a split decision in BKFC’s second event.

Rawlings last competed in MMA, where she defeated Elina Kallionidou in a unanimous decision at Bellator 240 back in February 2020. The Australian hasn’t fought in bare-knuckle boxing since BKFC 4 in February 2019. Rawlings is undefeated in bare-knuckle boxing with a record of 3-0.

Meanwhile, Hart saw a four-fight winning streak in bare-knuckle boxing come to an end when she lost a decision to Christine Ferea for the BKFC women’s flyweight title earlier this year at BKFC: Knuckle Mania 2. Prior to the defeat, she had bested UFC veterans Paige VanZant and Pearl Gonzalez.
