The idea of competing in bare-knuckle boxing was “kind of nuts” to Rachael Ostovich at first, so initially she wasn’t interested in signing with Bare Knuckle FC. But then she saw Britain Hart defeat Paige VanZant at “BKFC: KnuckleMania,” and that’s when Ostovich knew she had to try it. She specifically wanted a shot at VanZant, who submitted Ostovich in mixed martial arts at UFC Fight Night 143 in January 2019. “I was like, ‘I can do this. I know I can beat her,’” Ostovich recently told MMA Junkie Radio. “But it was just committing myself and going through with this process of bare-knuckle.” Ostovich did just that and came away victorious with a split decision over VanZant this past July at BKFC 19
