BYB Extreme Fighting Series was established to bring fight fans what they want most, ACTION! BYB Extreme Bare-Knuckle Brawl is designed to leave decisions to the combatants in the ring, not the judges. Close combat in BYB’s 3-sided Triangle ring, 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. For more information visit bybextreme.com, Facebook @bybextremefightingseries, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube at @bybextreme.
