Internet backyard fighting pioneer and celebrity, Dada 5000, fully recovered from injuries he suffered three years ago in his epic fight with Kimbo Slice, has turned the page to the next chapter of his career and life.
The street-fighting icon brings his BYB (back yard brawls) experience, along with business partners Mike Vazquez and Jose Suris, to a new, sanctioned platform as a promotional company, BYB Extreme Fighting Series (BYB), bare-knuckle fighting’s most intense combat sports promoter.
BYB’s inaugural show, “BYB Brawl 1: Brawl For It ALL”, will be held Friday night, April 5, at Cheyenne Ice & Event Center in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
Dada 5000, the subject and star of the acclaimed “Dawg Fight” documentary, is a BYB Extreme partner who will serve as one of the color commentators at cage-side. This larger-than-life personality has been featured on Vice, E:60 ON ESPN, Taboo on National Geographic, and an EA Sports commercial with Tiger Woods, Arnold Palmer and Lee Trevino, among others.
“BYB Brawl 1: Brawl For It ALL” will feature nine professional bare-knuckle fights, including a rematch between two Miami street-fighters from ‘Dawg Fight’, “Chocolate” (Alfonso Frierson) vs. Mike “Dragonhulk” Trujillo. Idaho heavyweight Jamelle “The Beast” Jones, a two-time national college wrestling champion, as well as a participant in UFC Fight Night 23, will be in action versus Matt Kovacs in one of two slated MMA matches on the card.
