'Iranian Hulk' signs deal with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championships and will debut in 2020


We all know someone who claims to be the real-life version of The Incredible Hulk.

You know, that one friend who goes to the gym once a week, lifts a couple of weights, and then brags about it for hours on end or posts about it on his social media.

Well for one person, he can actually call himself a version of The Incredible Hulk.

Sajad Gharibi, who is better known as 'The Iranian Hulk', is an internet sensation due to his size and figure, and he's about to become even more popular after it was announced that he's signed for Bare Knuckle Fighting Championships (BKFC), and will make his debut next year.

If you haven't seen Gharibi before, he's a monster of a man!

He stands at 6ft2 and weighs a whopping 390lbs. That is a remarkable 176kg.

Unsurprisingly, the 27-year-old is a former bodybuilder, and this isn't the first time he's been linked with a move into combat sports. He's regularly flirted with a move to Mixed Martial Arts, but as of yet, he hasn't completed the switch.

However, that will all change next year as he makes his debut in the BKFC, and we all cannot wait to see how it ends up.

The promotion's president David Feldman announced the exciting signing during their broadcast of last night's show.

He'll make his debut at an event titled 'USA vs. Iran: World War 3'.

BKFC has been around for just over a year now, and has played host to nine shows in that timeframe.

It's a growing trend in the world of combat sports, and it welcomed former boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi to its world earlier this year, although his bow ended in defeat.

'The Iranian Hulk' will hope his debut doesn't go the same way, but one thing is for sure, it's going to be must-see TV.
