B2Digital Inc. (OTC: BTDG), a full-service live events sports company, announced a couple of exciting new developments in late September and the beginning of October 2019. The company issued an update regarding its B2 Fighting Series fall season, which began with Colosseum Combat 50 in Kokomo, Indiana, on September 14. The season continued with the Pinnacle Combat Fight Group’s debut on September 28 (http://ibn.fm/84nSk).
The second event of the B2 Fighting Series, Pinnacle Combat Fight Group made its debut at McGrath Dubuque Harley Davidson in Dubuque, Iowa, with nine amateur and three professional fights and a professional flyweight headliner between Jeff Jepsen and Nathan Williams.
The B2 Fighting Series fall schedule, consisting of 10 live MMA fights in 10 different states, will continue with the HRMMA Fight Group event in Covington/Cincinnati, Ohio, on October 12.
The HRMMA event comes after the group’s founder and CEO, retired mixed martial arts fighter Vanessa Higdon, was honored with the 2019 Danny Davis Lifetime Achievement Award by the Kentucky Boxing and Wrestling Commission, according to a B2Digital press release (http://ibn.fm/IjzdP).
The award recognizes individuals who have outstanding accomplishments in Kentucky’s combat sports field. There have been multiple renowned previous winners, including Muhammad Ali (awarded posthumously).
Higdon initiated her MMA career in 2003, when she started working with other fight groups to promote the business aspect of live events. In 2006, Higdon became an MMA fighter who competed in several events until her retirement in 2008. In 2017, HRMMA became part of the B2Digital B2 Fighting Series.
Over the course of 11 years, Higdon executed 110 live MMA events. Her skills, experience and industry know-how position her as a crucial B2Digital executive team member. “Vanessa is one of the top CEOs in the MMA industry and it was a proud moment to watch her win this Lifetime Achievement Award. She does an excellent job operating HRMMA and developing MMA in her area. This is one of the most exciting parts of leading B2Digital – to work alongside and mentor Vanessa and the up-and-coming CEOs in the B2 Fighting Series,” B2Digital CEO and Chairman Greg P. Bell said in a news release.
B2Digital applies its extensive background in entertainment, television and video to the live sports events field. The company also capitalizes on its strong management team and hands-on experience to develop and acquire MMA and sports-related brands. Its ultimate goal is to build an integrated premier development league, initially focused on the billion-dollar MMA marketplace.
As a part of its growth strategy, B2Digital intends to continue developing and acquiring assets that fall in line with the company’s business model. Such acquisitions are expected to enable B2Digital to become a fully vertically integrated live event sports company.
