Julian Lane was up to his usual Friday night laps.
Lane, who is perhaps best known for his famous line of “Let Me Knock, Brother” on The Ultimate Fighter is now participating in the BKFC. The 33-year-old has been on promotions without gloves since 2018. On Friday, however, after weighing in, he faced his opponent, Jake Bostwick. He bumped right into his face, which Bostwick didn’t like, so he slapped the TUF veteran in the face. The two then had to be separated but Lane continued to slap himself in the face.
The video of Lane being slapped was filmed live from BKFC, which can be seen around 6:30 p.m.
Julian Lane (12-9-1 MMA) is currently on a two-fight losing skid where he gave up a split decision to Thiago Alves at BKFC 12 last September. Prior to that, he suffered a TKO loss to Jim Alers and is currently only 1-3 at BKFC. His only victory was a decision over Tom Shoaff in June 2019.
BKFC 18 descends Saturday, June 26 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida. The card is good with four titles on the line as well as UFC veteran Pearl Gonzalez’s BKFC debut. Julian Lane, meanwhile, heads the preliminaries against Bostwick who is 1-0 at BKFC after defeating Tyler Voger at BKFC 14 in November.
