B2Digital Inc. (BTDG) Building Backbone for Battle with MMA Development League

October 28, 2019 11:42:52
  • B2Digital Inc. has organized a premier development league for mixed martial arts competitors that includes a 10-event fall season currently under way across 10 states, with an extended reach via social media and online video
  • Over the past decade, mixed martial arts has seen remarkable growth in worldwide popularity that has positioned it as the third most popular sport behind soccer and basketball
  • B2Digital recently filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission establishing itself as a fully reporting company intent on showing its ability to attract a higher level of shareholder interest

The growth in popularity of mixed martial arts (MMA) during the past decade to a lofty position where it ranks just behind soccer and basketball as the world’s third most popular sport has opened a potential bonanza for the people who can properly organize and promote a good fight.

MMA athletes combine boxing, judo, karate, wrestling and other disciplines in cage matches that have drawn nearly a half billion fans, according to Nielsen Sports DNA, the vast majority of them from outside the United States (http://nnw.fm/lb2G1).

Sports entertainment company B2Digital Inc. (OTC: BTDG) has steadily shown its backbone for battle since it restructured two years ago with the launch of its own premier MMA development league as well as two training facilities for fighters and a social media network that keeps fans connected as the action unfolds.

B2Digital aims to build its B2 Fighting Series champions to the point that their fighters can move on to the MMA major leagues, providing audiences in Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, Alabama and Mississippi a rousing season of live competitive events with video viewer access in the process (http://nnw.fm/gBw4x). The geographical focus will remain on states in the Midwest, South and Central regions where viewership is the highest.

The company is now in line to uplist on the OTC Exchange after becoming a fully reporting business with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) this month, filing a Form 8-A Registration Statement that will open the way for increased investment potential exposure.

“We believe that becoming a fully-reporting company subject to the reporting requirements of the SEC shows our commitment to providing current public information to not only our deserving and valued shareholders but to the public, in general,” Chairman and CEO Greg P. Bell stated in a news release (http://nnw.fm/aXF9A). “Being a fully reporting company with the SEC should also help contribute to increased liquidity for our current and future shareholders and will enhance management’s accountability.”

B2Digital acquired HRMMA and Colosseum Combat in 2017 and United Combat League, Pinnacle combat and Strike Hard Productions in 2019 and maintains the acquisition of existing and operating MMA fight groups as a key part of its strategy. The company also continues to build its social network, which passed 3.9 million connections to consumers during the second quarter, and is developing ways to monetize the B2SN audience (http://nnw.fm/Fl1TE).

The viewership amounted to 4,902 hours of B2Digital video, both live and on-demand, which was an increase of 45 percent. While 95 percent of the B2SN audience is in the United States, the network reached 24 other countries, including nearly all of the Americas and Asia.
