Official B2FS matchmaker Brandon “Hardrock” Higdon commented, “We have a really stacked fight card this weekend as we head to Duluth. The highlight of the night will be the Main Event, which will feature two huge undefeated heavyweights looking to get closer to the big show: Antwan “The Giant Slayer” Phillips (3-0-0) takes on Austin “the Bodyguard” Vert ( 2-0-0). Both big men are coming off first-round knockouts. This fight alone will likely be worth the price of admission. But we have five more pro fights ahead of him. It’s going to be a night of big fights and big action as the top prospects go head-to-head in a series of critical matchups!”
B2FS 160 will feature 12 fights – six pro and six amateurs. Besides the explosive Main Event, Treston Vines will make their long-awaited return to the cage as they face a match from Shlomo Boyd. Undefeated Christian Turner will also face highly touted prospect Roman Papuc. Cris Mims will take on ATT’s Lamar Brown. Krissa Timbs will take on Sarah Cook in exciting Pro Women’s MMA action. Marcus Crawford will face Mike Bardsley to complete the Pro card.
On the undercard, fans will be treated to five riveting amateur bouts, including a title fight for the 170-pounders. Welterweight belt between Quadarrius McGinnis (7-3-0) and Chris Brant (5-2-0).
David Cummings, Co-Founder of Metaskins, said, “Metaverse fans will be excited after the B2FS held a Decentraland knockout event in March that featured a strong avatar presence and popular NFT apparel. If tomorrow night features even half of the action we saw in Alabama, then I know it’s going to be another night to remember!
“Tomorrow night will be our second major metaverse event as B2 Digital continues to develop into an exciting and valuable new medium of exposure and distribution,” commented Greg P. Bell, President and CEO of B2 Digital. “We will reach more fans and continue our trend of accelerating brand growth. The fight card is full of real prospects. And all know that the extra exposure provides the opportunity to become a global star overnight with a spectacular performance. The fighters are screwed. Team B2 is screwed. And our fan base is ready for one of our most exciting shows ever.
