Company Prepares for 27 Fights, Three Championship Bouts, Multiple Potential Future UFC Stars in the Cage, and No Crowd Capacity Caps
Tampa, FL, July 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- B2Digital Incorporated (the “Company” or “B2Digital”) (OTCMKTS:BTDG), the premier development league for mixed martial arts (“MMA”), is excited to announce that the B2 Fighting Series (“B2FS”) is primed and ready to roll into the Sloan Convention Center in Bowling Green, Kentucky, for back-to-back nights of hard-hitting live MMA action this weekend.
What: B2 Fighting Series 127 & 128, Amateur and Professional LIVE MMA
Where: Sloan Convention Center, Bowling Green, Kentucky
When: Friday & Saturday, July 23 & 24. Doors open at 6pm ET. PPV Broadcast starts at 7pm ET.
In-person tickets for the event have nearly sold out, but interested fans can stream it live on Pay-Per-View here, or enjoy it live over the B2 Fighting Series apps on Amazon Fire TV or Apple TV.
Brandon ‘Hardrock’ Higdon, B2’s Matchmaker, commented, “This weekend, we head back to Bowling Green for back-to-back nights of brutal MMA action. On Friday night, we have another USA vs Canada main event as champion Chance Beck looks to stay undefeated as a pro and move one step closer to the bright lights of the UFC. In his way is Adam Assenza, one of the top lightweight pros in Canada, who hopes to board his flight home with a shiny new belt and a four-fight win streak. The winner of this fight could be in the Big Show sooner than later. Friday will also showcase the return of The Ultimate Fighter alumni, Prince McLean. Saturday night’s action will feature the pro-170-lb title on the line as champ Cameron VanCamp looks for his 4th win in a row and Virginia’s very tough Kenny Gaudreau looks to upset the apple cart.”
Between the two nights, B2FS 127 and B2FS 128 represent 27 professional and amateur MMA bouts – 25 male matchups and 2 female matchups. The B2FS Lightweight Championship, B2FS Welterweight Championship, and B2FS Bantamweight Championship belts are all on the line. Many of the most prominent and successful MMA fight teams in North America will be represented at the events.
This two-night event represents two opportunities for the Company to continue benefit from increasing average revenues per event and the absence of crowd capacity limitations due to the virus. Last weekend’s event in Kokomo, Indiana, was the first post-pandemic event without crowd capacity limitations, which resulted in a new B2 Fighting Series record in terms of total event-related revenues.
“We couldn’t be more excited about a weekend!” commented Greg P. Bell, CEO of B2Digital. “There’s something magical about the Sloan Convention Center and the Bowling Green fight scene. The fighters bring out their best every time. And this time, we have some of the best fight teams on the continent in attendance and multiple potential future UFC stars stepping into the cage. This is also going to be a great weekend from a shareholder value standpoint, as we continue to see ramping revenue growth. And we are seeing this from both our Live Event and our Training Facility segments, where we are off to a tremendous start to the quarter, and I look forward to discussing those trends in more detail very soon.”
