I am quite pleased that Colosseum Combat’s team, who has experience promoting and operating over 40 LIVE events, will stay on to operate Colosseum Combat under B2’s management. We are hopeful that these acquisitions will continue B2’s growth as a premier MMA LIVE Events Sports Company,” said Greg P. Bell, Chairman & CEO of B2Digital.
“We have been looking for ways to grow Colosseum Combat and the expertise of Mr. Bell being available to work with us in developing Colosseum Combat was a key part of my decision to become part of the B2 Fighting Series and join the B2Digital group of companies. This will allow us to supply our Champions and Fighters with additional opportunities to develop their MMA skills and a road to move up into the MMA Major Leagues, ” said Mark Slater, President and owner of Colosseum Combat.
