Bodog Fight's Prangley says “Professional” Comes Tailor Made
For Immediate Release
October 11 , 2007
When devising a game plan, most mixed martial arts fighters play to their strengths – brawlers brawl, wrestlers wrestle and grapplers grapple. Clearly, middleweight sensation Trevor Prangley doesn't subscribe to this theory.
Despite his wrestling pedigree, the 34-year-old South African vows to beat striker Pierre “The Professional” Guillet at his own game when the two square off this Tuesday, October 16 at 9 p.m. and midnight EST as Bodog Fight: Costa Rica Combat continues in Canada on The Score Television Network.
“I am actually looking forward to trading punches with him,” says Prangley.
“Pierre is primarily a stand-up fighter, but I've been working hard in the gym to improve that particular aspect of my game. I think this fight will provide the perfect opportunity for me to see just how far I've come. Pierre is a tough guy, but I'm supremely confident in my own ability.”
Prangley, who trains at the at the Lion's Den in Idaho, has a pro record of 14-4, with notable wins over Chael Sonnen and Travis Lutter. He also earned his second unanimous decision over hard-hitting Andrei Semenov in December at Bodog Fight: USA vs. Russia.
Guillet is a 33-year-old career military man, who has served over 10 years in the US Air Force. Currently stationed in the UK, he has appeared in Cage Rage and Ultimate Combat competitions, amassing a pro record of 10-4.
In other MMA action, 25-year-old Utah native Kyacey “Ice Cold” Uscola (12-6) squares off against Pancrase veteran, Izuru Takeuchi (20-8-1).
Making his second trip to Costa Rica, Uscola's on the comeback trail. “Ice Cold” suffered a meltdown against Prangley in the first season of Bodog Fight, and was caught with an arm triangle choke. However, this knockout specialist is always dangerous and is anxious to get back in the win column.
Takeuchi is no pushover though. The 32-year-old native of Okayama, Japan, has competed in numerous grappling tournaments, including the All-Japan Combat Wrestling Championships.
Don't miss Bodog Fight: Costa Rica Combat, airing Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9 p.m. and midnight EST in Canada on The Score.
