That’s all it took for Frank Tate and his heavy hands to dispatch former BKFC World Heavyweight Champion Joey Beltran in their Main Event showdown Thursday at BKFC Fight Night Fort Lauderdale, LIVE on BKTV.
"The funny thing is, I don't even like knockouts,” the Alabama big man says after the fact. “But once you hit that button, they’re goin’ down.”
With the win – Tate’s second straight KO – the 45-year-old heavyweight improved to 2-1-1 in the BKFC Squared Circle.
Tate, of course, will be watching intently when current BKFC Heavyweight Champion Arnold Adams (6-1) defends his belt against Dillon Cleckler (2-0) in the Main Event of BKFC 25 in Orlando on May 6, LIVE on BKTV.
“I hope Adams wins. I like Adams,” Tate says. “But if Dillon wins, I've got bad blood with him. His (expletive) is going down too.”
