The Cavender’s Cup will be held on Sunday, October 18th 


WACO, TX – One of the most exciting events of 2019 was BFO’s “One HOT Bullfight” held at the Extraco Events Center. 


While 2020 has been a year of turmoil and uncertainty for so many, BFO is proud to partner with the Heart of Texas (HOT) Fair and Rodeo to bring the most thrilling ticket in live action sports back to Waco.  


“With about 75 percent of our events cancelled this year, we are ready to bring the fans a show!” said a reinvigorated Weston Rutkowski, the 3x BFO World Champion.  “We live for this adrenaline and nothing compares to freestyle bullfighting.” 


"Last year we debuted One HOT Bullfight and it was a tremendous success performing to a full house in the Extraco Coliseum. We are excited to continue our relationship with Bullfighters Only and bring this great, high-energy show back this year. We believe it is the perfect way to close out our 2020 rodeo,” said Heart O’ Texas Fair & Rodeo CEO and President Wes Allison.


Along with the coveted Cavender’s Cup, the best-of-the best, including dominant 2019 World Champion Aaron Mercer, will be competing for a purse of $10,000. 


They will have their skills tested against an equally stellar pen of fighting bulls.  BFO Stock Contractor Troy Bradshaw of Penthouse Fighting Bulls explains, “I have some hot bulls that have been ready to see action all year. With the talent BFO has coming, I have no doubt there will be plenty of electricity and some 90-point fights.”  


The HOT Fair and Rodeo leadership will take all necessary precautions to ensure a safe environment for fans.  Seating will not be at full capacity, so make sure you get your tickets in advance! 


The BFO Cavender’s Cup takes place on Sunday, October 18th at 7PM inside the Extraco Coliseum in Waco, TX.  Tickets go on sale Tuesday, September 8th.  For ticket information, visit
