Grove set for second bare knuckle fight

The Maui News

Maui’s Kendall Grove will take on Marcel Stamps at Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship 3, set for Oct. 20 at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Miss.

Grove, the former mixed martial arts fighter in the UFC and Bellator circuits, made his debut with the BKFC last month with a unanimous-decision victory over Bruce Abramski in Biloxi.

Stamps is a former University of Alabama linebacker who had a win while competing in a Bellator event last year. He knocked out Brandon Martin at last month’s BKFC event.

Grove, who has a 23-18 lifetime record in MMA, made the move to the BKFC after his contact with Bellator was up following a loss to AJ Matthews in January. He is currently under a three-fight contact with BFKC.
