Virtual attendance is unlimited at The Aquarium Casino (theaquariumcasino.com).
The B2 Fighting Series, in partnership with Metaskins Studios SAS (“Metaskins”), will also be dropping new NFTs along with prior NFTs dropped at its first Metaverse event, B2FS 153, held on March 26. The new B2 wearable available for MMA fans in the Metaverse at the Aquarium Casino on May 7 will be the B2FS fight brand in a blue classic varsity jacket with black and white accents. The varsity jacket also features bright neon trimmings allowing avatars to be seen from far away, with bright lights shining throughout the wearable.
In addition, because the event is taking place at a casino in the metaverse, fans attending virtually will be able to engage in live “free play” casino gaming activities during the fights.
Official B2FS Matchmaker, Brandon “Hardrock” Higdon, commented, “We have a truly stacked fight card this weekend as we head to Duluth. The highlight of the evening will be the Main Event, which features two huge undefeated heavyweights looking to get a step closer to the big show: Antwan “The Giant Slayer” Phillips (3-0-0) will take on Austin “the Bodyguard” Green (2-0-0). Both big men come off first round KOs. That fight alone will likely be worth the price of admission. But we have five other pro fights ahead of it. It’s going to be a night of big fights and big action as top prospects go head to head in a series of critical matchups!”
B2FS 160 will feature 12 bouts – six pro and six amateur. Besides the explosive Main Event, Treston Vines will make his long-awaited return to the cage as he takes on a game Shlomo Boyd. Undefeated Christian Turner will also square off against highly touted prospect Roman Papuc. Cris Mims will face ATT’s Lamar Brown. Krissa Timbs will face off with Sarah Cook in exciting Pro female MMA action. Marcus Crawford will battle Mike Bardsley to round out the Pro card.
On the undercard, fans will be treated to five fascinating amateur bouts including a title fight for the 170 lbs. Welterweight belt between Quadarrius McGinnis (7-3-0) and Chris Brant (5-2-0).
David Cummings, Co-Founder of Metaskins, stated, “Metaverse fans will be fired up after the B2FS put on a knockout Decentraland event in March, which featured heavy avatar attendance and popular NFT wearables. If tomorrow night showcases even half the action we got to see in Alabama, then I know it’s going to be another memorable night!”
“Tomorrow night will be our second major metaverse event as B2 Digital continues to expand into a thrilling and valuable new medium of exposure and distribution,” commented Greg P. Bell, Chairman and CEO of B2 Digital. “We will reach more fans and continue our accelerating trend of brand growth. The fight card is packed with real prospects. And all of them know the extra exposure offers the chance to become a global star overnight with a spectacular performance. The fighters are jacked. The B2 team is jacked. And our fanbase is ready for one of our most exciting shows ever.”
