The B2FS team showed up in 6 different states over 6 weeks, driving strong results and laying a foundation in 5 new markets
Tampa, FL, March 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire — B2Digital Incorporated (the “Company” or “B2Digital”) (OTCMKTS:BTDG), the premier development league for mixed martial arts (“MMA”), is pleased to update shareholders on the Company’s recent string of successful live B2 Fighting Series (“B2FS”) events, including six (6) new live B2FS MMA events over the past six weekends in six different states.
“The last two weekends – B2FS 151 in Olathe, Kansas and B2FS 152 in Summersville, West Virginia – have featured great crowds and big action-packed fights as momentum continues for the B2 Fighting Series,” stated Brandon ‘Hardrock’ Higdon, B2’s Matchmaker. “At B2FS 151 in Kansas, we saw Dylan Budka nail down his 2nd pro win with an exciting 9-second KO. Nicholas Meck moved to 3-0 as a pro with a hard-fought decision over the tough Dallas Jennings. But the biggest excitement of the night was reserved for our Main Event, which featured Hawaii’s Shojin Miki squaring off against Kendrick Latchman in the first fight of our Professional Flyweight Grand Prix. Miki survived a back-and-forth fight to win in exciting fashion with a second-round armbar.”
Higdon continued, “A week later, the B2 bus pulled into Summersville, West Virginia for B2FS 152, which featured a tremendous night of fights in front of a sold-out crowd at the Summersville Arena & Conference Center. The event saw Professional fighters Kyle Wright and Ilyaz Mamadaliyev secure their 2nd pro wins, while UFC veteran Dom Steele logged a decision victory on his path back to the big show. The highlight of the night came in the second round of our Pro Flyweight Grand Prix when Brian Hauser shocked the sold-out arena with a highlight-reel KO of a game Tevin Dyce following a back-and-forth slugfest.”
Over the six-fight span, five of the events were inaugural appearances in new venues. All of these events came in above the Company’s long-term average for total revenues in inaugural events in new markets.
“In the past month and a half, we have been to Missouri, Kentucky, Georgia, Mississippi, Kansas, and West Virginia, and we racked up some very nice numbers and treated brand new fans to a taste of the B2 Fighting Series,” stated Greg P. Bell, CEO and Founder of B2 Digital. “This has been an enormously productive stretch because we laid a foundation for future events in a number of new markets. We also saw further evidence of successful brand-building for the B2 Digital and B2FS brands – there’s nothing like pulling into a new town and being met with a big crowd that already knows our fighters and what to expect at a B2FS event.”
The B2 Fighting Series will be back in action this weekend at B2FS 153 (March 26) at the Dothan City Civic Center in Dothan, Alabama, and virtually at the Aquarium Casino in the Vegas City district in Decentraland (-140,127).
