TAMPA, FL, May 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire – B2Digital Incorporated (the “Company” or “B2Digital”) (OTCMKTS:BTDG), the premier development league for mixed martial arts (“MMA”), is excited to announce that the B2 Fighting Series is headed for Cedar Rapids, Iowa, for more hard-hitting action in B2FS 161 this Saturday night. But this time, there’s a twist: the entire event will be shot exclusively on Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max mobile devices for the event.
What: B2 Fighting Series 161, Amateur and Professional LIVE MMA
Where: DoubleTree by Hilton Convention Complex in Cedar Rapids, Iowa
When: Saturday, May 14th. Doors open at 6pm ET. PPV Broadcast starts at 7pm ET.
Physical seats are available for live attendance and tickets can still be purchased at the door. Due to the promotional event, B2FS 161 will not be live streamed over PPV or over the B2 Fighting Series apps on Amazon Fire TV or Apple TV. Instead, the Company is testing a new distribution process whereby a full production movie of the entire event will be released following the production process over social media.
Management notes that the iPhone 13 Pro Max has become a major innovation in the visual arts and media space, with a number of major productions now being shot exclusively using these devices, which are compact and even wearable, without sacrificing better production quality results. This device can be maneuvered in a way traditional large cameras cannot, allowing for more interesting angles and shots, or even gaining footage through strapping the phone onto performers (or cornermen, in this case), giving viewers new perspectives on the action.
B2FS 161 will feature two spectacular pro matchups and six fascinating amateur bouts between up-and-coming future stars. The main event of the evening pits Juan “And Only” Roman (5-2-0) in at 155 lbs. battle for respect and future status against Chance Beck (7-3-0), who comes off a first-round verbal submission victory in his last bout. Fans will also be treated to the B2FS Heavyweight Championship bout between Cody “The Macktrucck” Baker (4-2-0) and Quentin Campbell (4-4-0), who comes in on a streak, with two straight KO’s.
“This Saturday night, we will be mixing it up and trying out some new technology, a new production process, and a new angle on distribution of our tremendous content to spotlight the amazing raw MMA action that happens every week inside the B2 cage,” commented Greg P. Bell, Chairman and CEO of B2 Digital. “We are always excited to experiment with new processes, innovations, and technology. Apple’s new iPhone 13 Pro Max is a revolutionary device with some game-changing tech. It’s also a great night to capture that content. Our fight card is stacked in Iowa this weekend and will feature some incredible action.”
