Not familiar with Bullfighters Only? Cowboy Lifestyle Network has you covered!

“Bullfighters Only is the world’s premier freestyle bullfighting competition series. Featuring an international roster of elite pros competing against the meanest fighting bulls for the largest purse in bullfighting history. 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” (

Each matchup in the arena has the opportunity to score up to 100 points. With 50 possible points on the line for both bullfighter and bull, the stakes are on to reach the highest total possible. Bullfighters are scored in areas of control, style, difficulty, and creativity. Bulls are scored in areas of aggression, speed, difficulty, staying “hooked up,” and agility. Each match can last up to 60 seconds, however, bullfighters can “declare” any time after 40 seconds without the worry of losing points. Failure to reach the warning horn will end in disqualification.

While audience members are kept on the edge of their seats as these athletes, jump, dodge, and dance around up to 1,500 pounds of charging bull, Bullfighters Only offers much more than a chance for human competitors to display extreme athleticism, it also offers sanctuary for the Toro Bravo Bull, also known as the Spanish Fighting Bull. Typically featured in traditional bullfighting rings in other countries, due to its natural aggression and instinct to charge, the Toro Bravo Bull is celebrated in the BFO arena. Bullfighters Only provide a humane and safe experience for these incredible animal athletes, who are celebrated just as much as their two-legged “dance partners.” Living their full lives in luxury as respected animal athletes, these bulls garner a serious reputation and the admiration of bullfighting competitors and fans alike.
