Florida-based B2Digital Inc. (OTC: BTDG) is building a launching pad for mixed martial arts (MMA) champions to enter the big leagues. The platform – B2 Fighting Series (B2FS) – is meant to be the Premier Development League for the mixed martial arts (MMA) marketplace, offering the best minor league fighters an arena to showcase their pluck and prowess to fans, as well as scouts from the big leagues. The development league got going on September 14, 2019, with the 12-fight Colosseum Combat 50 in Kokomo, Indiana, the first of 10 such events planned for the inaugural B2FS Fall Season.
With the launch of B2FS, B2Digital is stepping up its efforts to become a full-service live event sports company. The company has embarked on a “rollup” strategy of purchasing MMA and sports-related companies and parlaying the acquisitions into an integrated league of subsidiary companies operating in the most lucrative sectors of the billion-dollar MMA marketplace. With its recent acquisition of Strike Hard Productions of Alabama, B2Digital now controls five subsidiaries, or ‘fight groups’. Strike Hard Productions has hosted more than 50 LIVE MMA events in Alabama and Mississippi. It joins B2Digital’s B2 Fighting Series network, which includes the HRMMA, Colosseum Combat, United Combat League and Pinnacle Combat fighting companies, as well as MMA news and social media portal Blue Grass MMA. The inclusion of Strike Hard Productions increases to 10 the number of states in which the B2 Fighting Series will be hosting fights (http://nnw.fm/7qV70).
B2Digital has fought its way to this stage of development, rising phoenix-like from a struggling video-on-demand outfit, as CEO Greg P. Bell explained in a recent SmallCapVoice interview (http://nnw.fm/8d4yD). Bell also talked with SmallCapVoice host Stuart Smith about his background and experience. He is a pioneer in the entertainment and digital media space and has been working in the field for over 30 years.
Bell was one of the initial vice presidents of business development at Qwest Communications and was instrumental in developing Qwest’s digital media company, Slingshot Networks. He later headed Slingshot, running all of its operations, which included the broadcast studio in Staples Center; TV and news productions; live events at the Staples Center; distribution of a national television show by Warner Brothers TV Distribution; and online television productions and web distribution for the NFL, NBA, NHL, AFL, boxing and the Democratic Convention, as well as live music events.
After his stint at Slingshot, Bell founded B3 Development Group, a firm specializing in developing emerging market entertainment and media companies. He later implemented a merger with B3 Development Group subsidiary B2 Networks and the America ONE Television Network and took the reins as CEO of the combined operation. Under his direction, the company, now called ONE Media Corp., went on to launch the new ONE World Sports TV Network in North America on cable and satellite.
