ABOUT BYB EXTREME: BYB Extreme Fighting Series was established to bring fight fans what they want most, ACTION!  BYB Extreme Bare-Knuckle Brawls are designed to leave decisions to the combatants in the cage, not the judges. Close combat in BYB’s 3-sided Triangle cage, affectionately known as “The Trigon”, just about guarantees that. No other ring or cage in the world has angles of less than 90 degrees. With 60-degree angles, “The Trigon’ guarantees 180-degrees of mayhem. BYB Extreme combatants will work to take the action to the center of the cage versus risking getting caught up in one of ‘The Trigon’s’ tight corners. BYB Extreme Fighting Series is taking Bareknuckle Brawling into the 21st and even the 22nd centuries, not back to the 1800’s. Let’s Brawl!
