Founded by pro bullfighter Aaron Ferguson, Bullfighters Only (BFO) was created to promote growth, popularity, and acceptance of freestyle bullfighting worldwide. Since its inception, BFO has evolved to become a platform that serves to excite the western community, educate both the avid and casual fans, and present the sport to an entirely new audience.
In a showing of solidarity, the top-ranked bullfighters in the world have formed an exclusive alliance known as the BFO Pioneer Project. Through this coalition, Bullfighters Only can ensure that the direction of freestyle bullfighting is guided by its athletes and guarantee its fans more action-packed entertainment from the sport’s greatest bullfighters.
“To be a part of the Pioneer Project is a blessing,” explains Dusty Tuckness, six-time and reigning PRCA Bullfighter of the Year. “This group of guys is standing together and it’s a brotherhood – bullfighters for bullfighters. BFO is changing the game of freestyle bullfighting.”
Fellow freestyle veteran Ross Hill agrees. “It’s such a ground-breaking movement. The Pioneer Project allows us (the bullfighters) to control the destiny of our sport. This is our passion. We want to advance freestyle bullfighting, not just for this generation, but for the generations to come.”
The talented group is fresh off of another successful BFO Session, an experimental action-sports style event that introduces a new flare to the western sports world. They are now preparing for the BFO’s first stand-alone title fight on June 26, 2016 at the Cedar Park Center – an 8,700 seat state-of-the-art arena near Austin, TX.
Bullfighters Only will also announce partnerships to create a premium global qualification system that spans from amateur events to the World Championship. These partnerships will give non-BFO Pros the opportunity to become part of the current BFO roster and compete on tour. This system will also serve as a way for current BFO Pros to gain extra championship qualification points.
