VBK 1

VBK: 1 featured a one-night, four-man heavyweight tournament as the card’s main attraction. In the first heavyweight bracket, we saw UK fighter Mark “Hand of” Godbeer take on UFC vet Jack May. At just 50 seconds into the first round, Godbeer knocked his opponent out with a straight right to the chin. As medics and officials attended to May, Godbeer took the Japanese seiza pose. He remained in this position as a show of respect until May rose to his feet. The sold-out crowd gave both fighters massive applause. He then faced Mighty Mo and defeated him in the very first round after a series of punches. Godbeer won the tournament and become the first Valor Bare Knuckle (VBK) Heavyweight Champion.
