Tampa, FL, Jan. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire — B2Digital Incorporated (the “Company”, “B2”, or “B2Digital”) (OTCMKTS:BTDG), the premier development league for mixed martial arts (“MMA”), is pleased to announce another strong night of LIVE MMA action as Strikehard 58 delivered B2’s best fight night financial performance since the onset of the pandemic and one of its most successful fight nights in Company history.
Overall, revenues from Saturday night represent a top-quintile performance for the Company compared to its all-time history, and easily surpassed all events since February of last year, with 33% of total revenues coming through Pay-Per-View (“PPV”) ticket sales – two-thirds of which came through the B2 InstaStore program.
The B2 InstaStore program, which was set in motion last year, leverages fans, fighters, and followers of B2Digital as entrepreneurs running social-media-based “storefronts” that sell PPV tickets to B2Digital fight events.
“We now have over 375 B2 InstaStore storefronts open and operating, and the effect is starting to meaningfully impact our results,” commented Greg P. Bell, Chairman & CEO of B2Digital. “The fighters came to fight on Saturday. They showed an excellent display of skills and entertained the sold-out audience at the event with big action, several remarkable performances, and huge heart. We continue to see tremendous talent in the Alabama region and we love to see them developing their skills in the B2 cage.”
Saturday’s Strikehard 58 event played in front of a sold-out crowd. The women’s bout between Natalie Gage and Rebekah Rotenberry, which featured non-stop action for all three rounds, was awarded “Fight of the Night” honors.
