Jorge Masvidal Invited To Compete In Savage Bare-Knuckle Fight
UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock has extended an invitation to BMF champ Jorge Masvidal to test his skills in Valor Bare Knuckle.
The former WWE superstar, 55, announced in July that he was setting up his bare-knuckle promotion and held the inaugural event in September.
And Shamrock is well aware of Masvidal's history with bare-knuckle fighting and wants him to prove that he is actually the 'baddest motherf****r' outside of carrying his belt.
"I don't think we need a belt to tell people there's a 'BMF' -- I don't understand that," he told MMA Fighting.
"Masvidal fought bare knuckle. He did backyard brawls just like [Kimbo Slice].
"So I say if that's the case, why doesn't he try his hand at Valor? We'd love to find out how bad he is."
MMA veteran Shamrock previously criticised the introduction of the BMF belt, which was contested between Masvidal and Nate Diaz at UFC 244.

But the 'World's Most Dangerous Man' insisted that he had no issue with Masvidal and Diaz and wants them to live up to their reputations rather than fighting over a BMF belt.
"I'm not taking anything from them, because all these guys would whip my butt right now," he explained.
"All I'm saying is compared to what we had to go through, getting kicked in the face, punched in the back of the head with no gloves, no rules, no time limit, four times in one night, yes, it's funny."
Shamrock also slammed the controversial doctor's stoppage of the Masvidal and Diaz fight, saying that it was the price to pay for the BMF title.
"In my opinion, Diaz and Masvidal, you've got to let guys fight," he said.
"These guys are both skilled fighters. They have a lot of fights under their belt, and they both know what they're in for.
"It's just like with some of my fights that were stopped -- it was just ridiculous.
"Oh yeah, I get it. They want to try and keep people safe. But don't do that with guys that are veterans.
"The guys that have been in there a whole long time, you've got to give them a lot of leeway."
