October 1 , 2007

Two of the worlds most formidable fighters will do battle on the next episode of the hit mixed martial arts series Bodog Fight: New Jersey, with the winner taking home the inaugural Bodog Fight Middleweight Championship belt.

South Africa's Trevor Prangley (14-4) would like nothing more than to adorn his muscular midriff with the bejeweled belt, but first he will have to get past Yuki Kondo (46-19-6).

A Japanese legend, Kondo has faced a who's who of the sport, including Tito Ortiz, Wanderlei Silva, Phil Baroni, Josh Barnett, and Dan Henderson. Needless to say, the 31-year-old Pancrase veteran is confident he can whip Prangley.

“Trevor is tough, but I've fought some of the best fighters in the world and I believe my experience will serve me well for this fight,” warned Kondo.

34-year-old Prangley, who now trains at the Lion's Den in Idaho, has notable wins over Travis Lutter and Kyacey “Ice Cold” Uscola. He also earned his second unanimous decision over hard-hitting Andrei Semenov in Vancouver at Bodog Fight: USA vs. Russia, before forcing Pierre “The Professional” Guillet to submit in the first round on Bodog Fight: Costa Rica Combat.

“I feel like I've earned this title shot,” declared Prangley. “It's every fighter's goal to win a title belt and I won't let Yuki Kondo stand in my way.”
