Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport 3 has announced its first slate of matches for the October 11th event including the main event, which will see Jon Moxley lock horns with Chris Dickinson.

We will also see Simon Grimm (formerly known as Simon Gotch in WWE) facing off against Matt Makowski and Erik Hammer vs Kal Jak.

The Bloodsport events are contested in rings with no ropes and all matches must end via knockout of submission.

Also announced for the event are:

‘Filthy’ Tom Lawlor

Lindsay Snow

Killer Kelly

Josh Alexander


Calvin Tankman

Davey Boy Smith Jr.

Allysin Kay

Alexander James


Deonna Purrazzo had been announced for the show but has pulled out citing health concerns.

The event had previously been scheduled to be a part of this year’s WrestleMania weekend but was cancelled in the wake of the pandemic.

Scheduled to main event that show was Jon Moxley versus Josh Barnett, which was originally due to take place at Bloodsport 2 in September 2019 but Moxley had to cancel due to an MRSA infection.

Moxley has shown interest in the Bloodsport concept dating back to the first show in 2018 and it appears he will finally get to show what he’s got inside a Bloodsport ring. Hopefully, the third time will be the charm for Moxley.

This will be the third Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport, but fourth overall under the Bloodsport banner. The concept show began in 2018 as Matt Riddle’s Bloodsport and was originally scheduled to be headlined by Riddle vs. Low Ki but changed last minute to Riddle vs. Minoru Suzuki.

Bloodsport will be shown live on fite.tv as part of The Collective.
