Tonight (Tuesday, June 12th) at 11 p.m. / 10 p.m. Central on ION Television, don’t miss a special episode of Bodog Fight featuring an entire hour devoted to the unsung “undercard gladiators” from Bodog Fight: Fedor Emelianenko vs Matt Lindland in St. Petersburg, Russia
In the first of four unseen Pay-Per-View battles, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu specialist Rodrigo “Crazy Face” Damm (4-1) fights fellow lightweight Santino DeFranco (14-5) of Arizona. Damm was coming off a big win over Kultar Gill, in which he literally threw “Black Mamba” out of the ring, while DeFranco was a last minute replacement for the injured Mike Brown.
Next, in a welterweight bout, Russia’s Dmitri Samoilov (2-0-1) squares off against another rizona fighter, Ray Steinbeiss (8-3). After winning his first eight fights, Steinbeiss had dropped three straight and was hungry for a win.
Then, a pair of hard-hitting women collide when Indiana’s Julie Kedzie (7-5) takes on St. Petersburg native Julia Berezekova (2-1). Can Kedzie overcome the hostile crowd and beat the Russian on her home turf?
Finally, it’s a middleweight bout featuring Russian, Amar Suloev (22-6), who looks to put a lid on Georgias Andy “The Garbage Pail Kid” Foster (8-1). Suloev is a fierce competitor, with Chuck Liddell, Denis Kang and Phil Baroni among the only fighters to best him. Foster is a submission specialist whose only loss was a decision to Brian Ebersole.
Next week it’s the Best of Bodog Fight! And coming in two weeks Bodog Fight is proud to present the premiere of it’s newest series, Bodog Fight: Paradise Lost beginning Tuesday, June 26th on ION television.
