FITE and B2Digital Incorporated announced a deal that will bring B2 Fighting Series on the FITE+ subscription service.
This comes after their pay-per-view run. B2 is known for record in-person draws at first-time events held in new markets.
“B2 Fighting Series is aggressive about both growth and innovation,” said Michael Weber, COO of FITE. “Both are traits we like at FITE. Their Metaverse events and constant push into new markets are great examples of their ambition and we’re proud to partner with them to get the action in front of the best fans and subscribers in the world.”
B2 matchmaker Brandon ‘Hardrock’ Higdon commented, “We head back to the Bill Harris Arena this weekend with a huge fight card featuring national and local MMA talent. The main event will feature the final first round matchup in the B2 Fighting Series Flyweight Grand Prix, as California fighter Taylor Alfaro tries to get past the tough Israel Galvan to secure his 6th win as a pro. Galvan is looking for a fourth straight victory.
The winner will move on to the semifinals to take on Brian Hauser. In the co main event, undefeated local pro prospect David “Danger Dave” Clark will take on Detroit’s gritty veteran Darren Gibbs who is coming off a highlight reel submission victory in his last fight.”
B2FS 165 will feature 3 pro and 8 amateur fights. On the amateur side of the card, 11 of the 16 fighters are from Alabama. The amateur card will feature a battle of undefeated welterweights as Austin Threatt takes on Shane Jackson. Elijah Brantley will take on Corey Thomas. And Frank Townser and Alex Riley will finally battle in the cage in a highly anticipated local matchup.
