Before Thursday’s UFC 261 press conference to promote rematch with welterweight champ Kamaru Usman, Masvidal announced he’s starting a new bare-knuckle fighting promotion called Gamebred Fighting Championship and will team up him with international reggaeton artist Anuel AA to host the organization’s first event in June.

“[Anuel AA and I] have teamed up to bring you the most vicious fights we could think of Bare Knuckle MMA,” days as a street fighter. “That’s right no gloves same rules and the first fight will be in Miami on June 25.”

According to Masvidal, who started his career in backyard fighting, he’s hoping to find the next great street fighter with his new promotion.
