Bodog Announces Launch Date of 'BodogFight' Reality
By Eric Nicholl (BodogFight), September 12, 2006
With a frenzied audience awaiting the inaugural
episode of the Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) reality
series, BodogFight, digital entertainment powerhouse
Bodog.com has announced a new launch date to allow for
additional footage in its action-packed weekly series.
Episode 1 will air September 19 on Men's Outdoor and
Recreation, which is carried in over 23 million homes
and on DISH Network, and online at BodogFight.com.
While traversing the globe in search of the world's
greatest MMA fighters, Bodog.com's billionaire
founder, Calvin Ayre, has not only set the stage for
the toughest fighters to showcase their talents, but
also raised the standard for reality TV and digital
entertainment. In the eight-episode series, seven
elite modern-day American warriors will earn the right
to represent the United States. As part of "Team USA",
the seven fighters will square off against members of
the Russian Red Devils Team, a group known for its
fierce roster that includes world heavyweight champion
Fedor Emelianenko. This USA vs. Russia grudge match
will be broadcast live on a future pay-per-view event
that will also include three Superfights.
Viewers will get a behind-the-scenes look at the
secret training regimen of the elite Russian squad as
well as the individual training programs and
lifestyles of the American fighters. Those intimate
scenes will all be presented through the eyes of
BodogFight's special agents - rock phenomenon Bif
Naked in the United States and her beautiful Russian
counterpart Natalya Vilkova. The sexy duo will be on a
quest to find the toughest, most ruthless Mixed
Martial Arts athletes the two countries have to offer.
Plus, audiences are going to be treated to up-close
and personal experiences with fighters as they prepare
to enter the ring, and spectacular training and
interview footage shot in the lush Central American
jungle and rustic Costa Rican cities - visuals that
will leave no doubt BodogFight has set the new
standard for reality TV.
"When BodogFight's inaugural episode launches, viewers
are going to witness a new standard in mainstream
digital entertainment," says Calvin Ayre, Founder of
Bodog.com Entertainment Group and creator of a number
of reality television series, including Bodog Salutes
the Troops which aired on Spike TV. "The additional
footage capturing the essence of Mixed Martial Arts as
a sport and lifestyle will add a new degree of rawness
never seen before."
Elimination battles, behind-the-scenes training,
interviews with fighters, and lifestyle segments will
compose seven of the weekly one-hour "BodogFight"
episodes, with the recap finale leading into the PPV
main event. The three massive super fights and the
spectacular USA vs. Russia event will be produced by
the Mixed Fight Championship (MFC) and sponsored by
