Back in the USSR
The MegaSport Ice Arena in Moscow, Russia will host BodogFight’s second Russian card in 2007. Oleg Taktarov, UFC 6 tournament champion, will return to active competition for the first time in nearly ten years. The early MMA favorite will face fellow Pride and UFC veteran John Marsh in the main event of the evening.
Unlike their “Clash of the Nations” pay per view card back in April of this year, the November 30th event will be made for TV, much like their BodogFight: New Jersey card featuring Eddie Alvarez and Matt Lee.
Three veterans of the “Clash of the Nations” card will attempt to bounce back from their losses that night, American Eric Pele, Andrei Semenov, and Julia Berezikova. Americans James Binky Jones, Jessica Aguilar, Dan Evensen, and Emyr Bussade will round out the American presence on the card.
