Tampa, FL, Nov. 18, 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 report that B2FS 139 in Sioux City, IA this past weekend was its best ever debut event in a new city. The B2 Fighting Series heads next to the Bluegrass Sportsplex in Elizabethtown, KY for another night of hard-hitting MMA thrills in B2FS 140.
B2FS 139 in Sioux City pulled in nearly $25k, which is more than double the long-term average for debut events in new markets for the B2 Fighting Series. In the Main Event match-up, Michael “The Mullet” Cyr climbed to 3-0 with a first-round rear naked choke submission of Kameron Jordan. Israel Galvan also won by submission to advance to 3-2. And Bryan “The Iceman” McDowell scored a first-round knockout to win his second straight bout and improve to 5-3.
For its next event, the B2 Fighting Series will head back to Elizabethtown, KY for B2FS 140 this Saturday, November 20.
What: B2 Fighting Series 140, Amateur and Professional LIVE MMA
Where: Bluegrass Sportsplex in Elizabethtown, KY
When: Saturday, November 20. Doors open at 6pm ET. PPV Broadcast starts at 7pm ET.
B2 matchmaker Brandon ‘Hardrock’ Higdon commented, “Any one of the four pro bouts scheduled for Saturday night could feature as a spectacular Main Event matchup on any fight card in the country. And we get four of them in one unbelievable night. Our Main Event will showcase local talent Jeff Holmes as he chases a ninth pro victory. Standing in his way is 10th Planet (Chicago) fighter Mike Demakes, who is looking for his seventh win as a pro. In the co-main, Sean Fallon will square off with Brandon ‘the Juggernaut’ Bell in a battle between two experienced fighters with double-digit pro wins under their belts. Jackson Wink product Aaron Mitchell will fly in from New Mexico to hunt his ninth pro win against Louisville native Randy Jones. Rounding out this incredible pro card will be Undefeated flyweight prospect Christian Clary taking on Cleveland’s Brian ‘Doogie’ Hauser. Overall, one of the best cards out there, and it should be a great night for MMA fans!”
B2FS 140 will feature 13 pro and amateur fights. The undercard will carry a full slate of interesting amateur matchups, including the B2FS Lightweight Championship between St. Louis rising star and current champ, Davion Trotter (7-1-0, 5-fight winning streak), and undefeated challenger, Trent Ebarb (3-0-0) from Team Alpha Male in California.
“The Sioux City revenue result is another very strong indicator of growth in the B2FS brand, which confers value to our Training Facilities segment as well,” commented Greg P. Bell, B2Digital CEO and Founder. “If you ask me what excites me most right now, it’s that – we go into a new market where we have established no presence, and we end up packing the house with a line up the block. As for B2FS 140 this weekend, I can’t wait. Hardrock has lined up an amazing card from top to bottom. The fighters are fired up and ready to leave it all in the cage. And I know we are going to give our fans an incredible show!”
