Fans of the Professional Bull Riders Built Ford Tough Series were treated to exciting action that took place as the second 15/15 Bucking Battle of the 2016 season took place Saturday night. The Honda Center played host to the fourth stop on the tour as the Anaheim Invitational was well underway. After the second round of competition the attention turned towards the top 15 bull riders in the world and some of the top bovine athletes in the industry today!
Every one of the bull riders that are in position to compete in this special opportunity know exactly what is on the line and what they need to do to achieve their goals of becoming a PBR World Champion. Along with the points that are up for grabs throughout the main event itself these top 15 bull riders have an opportunity to earn even more money as well as inflated championship points for placing in this exclusive event. After the event was in the record books there were not many rides but those that did make the buzzer proved to the fans in attendance that they knew exactly what they had to do to make the most of the situation.

After it was all said and done and the lights were dimmed on the arena floor inside of the Honda Center it was a minimal 4 bull riders who would be able to make it to the buzzer to gain some much needed championship points and a few extra dollars in their pockets. Even though every ride in the 15/15 Bucking Battle was thrilling there was one that stood out among the rest. The one match-up that came out on top earlier tonight was that of Derek Kolbaba Vs. D&H Cattle / Erwin Cattle’s DaNutso. These two matched forces for a huge 89.75 point ride which gave Kolbaba the extra 150 points that are needed to make it to the 2016 PBR World Finals.
