Josh Barnett vs. Minoru Suzuki To Headline Bloodsport; Event Sells Out

Main event signed for Josh Barnett's Bloodsport.

Last year, Game Changer Wrestling debuted Matt Riddle's Bloodsport, a hybrid wrestling/MMA event featuring the likes of Dan Severn, Tom Lawlor, WALTER, Nick Gage, Minoru Suzuki and of course, Matt Riddle. With Riddle now in WWE, the Bloodsport name has been passed to another MMA fighter turned pro wrestler; Josh Barnett.

Suzuki scored a knockout victory over Riddle in last year's main event. 

Other matches signed for Josh Barnett's Bloodsport are Frank Mir vs. Dan Severn, Hideki Suzuki vs. Timothy Thatcher, and Davey Boy Smith Jr. vs. Killer Kross. On top of announcing the main event, Barnett and Game Changer Wrestling also announced that Bloodsport has sold out, giving GCW their third WrestleMania weekend sell out.

Bloodsport is scheduled for Apr. 4 from White Eagle Hall in New Jersey. Fightful will have full results from the event.
