FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., May 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via OTC PR WIRE -- PotNetwork Holdings, Inc. (OTC Pink:POTN) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Diamond CBD, Inc., in conjunction with its joint-venture cause-related marketing partner, Exponential, Inc. (XPO2), will be sponsoring The Bully Rehab Awareness Gym (BRAG), based in Yuma, Arizona, as well as up-and-coming Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter, Tyler Yogi Hinton, protege of the gym's founder, Carlos Flores.

Management strongly believes that its support of the fastest growing sport on the planet, key anti-bullying programs and choice MMA athletes is a strategy that will pay long-term dividends. 

Around the world, there are more than 300 million MMA fans according to sports marketing research firm, Nielsen Sports. MMA is a full contact sport with elements of striking and grappling from various martial arts and disciplines 

including Boxing, Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Karate and Muay Thai.

MMA has the influence to teach lasting lessons that can strengthen our society and enrich local communities. Carlos Flores of the Bully Rehab Awareness Gym in Yuma, Arizona is the perfect example of that.  

The sport is also known as the "pain game," and Diamond CBD's specific pain relief product line provides a viable solution to one of the sport's biggest problems. 

As a former professional MMA fighter, Flores started the Bully Rehab Awareness Gym after seeing first hand what it was like to be bullied as well as what it was like to be the bully himself.  

Recently, Carlos and the Bully Rehab Awareness Gym were featured in this video on Mike Rowe's Facebook show. Known internationally as the host ofDiscovery Channel's "Dirty Jobs", Mike's new show provides the following caption: 

"Follow host Mike Rowe as he travels the country in search of remarkable people making a difference in their communities. Returning the Favor gives back to those who pay it forward with humor, heart and surprise. Because one good turn deserves another."

Today, Flores works with youth to instill values of self confidence, accountability and responsibility that help to disrupt the cycle of violence. He has designed programs to empower the bullied - as well as those who bully - to take on future positions of leadership in their communities.  

Bully Rehab Awareness Gym is inspiring youth from around the world to take a stand against bullying and help create safer communities.

PotNetwork Holdings, Inc. and Diamond CBD are proud to be associated with individuals of caliber like Carlos Flores and his Bully Rehab Awareness Gym.

By supporting community organizations focused on empowering youth to take on positions of authority and leadership in their local communities, Diamond CBD, Inc. is working to support the best of what America can be.
