“No Sweat” Allowed In “The Vault” This Week
As Bodog Fight Airs Two New Webisodes
November 20, 2007

For Immediate Release

Bodog Fight: The Vault offers up all-new hard-hitting webisodes this Tuesday and Saturday on Bodog TV's multi-award winning website, bodoglife.net/fight.

Tune in Tuesday, November 20 for an exciting middleweight bout between Scott Henze (20-9-2) and Steve Connelly (12-3), filmed September 29 in Evansville, Indiana.

Henze was looking to rebound from a devastating loss to former Bodog Fight Welterweight Champion Eddie Alvarez, who KO'd the Indiana native in Costa Rica earlier this year.

Conversely, Connelly, also from Indiana, came in riding a three-fight win streak.

“Connelly's a real character,” says Bodog Fight Commissioner Jeff Osborne.

“He won the world face-sucking contest and appeared in the National Enquirer when he was just nine years old. He was able to suck his entire face in like an old man, mainly because he had no teeth.”

Connelly fights under the nickname “No Sweat”, but not because he takes it easy in the ring.

“He was born without sweat glands,” says Osborne.

“Unfortunately, this means he can't cut weight the way most fighters do, by sweating off the pounds in the sauna. He has to do it the old-fashioned way – diet and exercise.”

Don't miss a second episode of The Vault on Saturday, November 24, featuring Brazil's Marcus “Ossoduro” Vinicios (2-3) and Canada's Dave Pogson (0-1).

Filmed in 2006 at the PNE Agrodome in Vancouver, British Columbia, this middleweight bout drew oohs and ahhs from the crowd, with Vinicious showcasing the Brazilian art of capoeira.

“A lot of people think capoiera is not a fight, it's a dance,” says the Brazilian. “But capoeira is everything your body needs to survive. If you need to punch somebody you gotta do it, if you need to tap somebody out, that's fine too.”

Bodog Fight: The Vault offers streaming video of all-new never-before-seen fights each Tuesday and Saturday, commercial free. Each “webisode” is fully downloadable and iPod-ready, featuring a previously unaired bout from the Bodog Fight archives.

This exclusive Bodog TV footage is only available online at bodoglife.net/fight, twice honored at the 2007 Digital Marketing Awards.

This cutting-edge website will also provide fans of Bodog Fight with the latest information on where to catch the show when it returns to U.S. television for an all-new sixth season.

Yes, we will be back, bigger and better than ever in 2008!

Filmed in beautiful Vancouver, Canada, series six will showcase all-new fights, a fresh crop of fighters, and an informative new desk segment with hosts Paul “The Mauler” Lazenby and Bodog Fight commissioner Jeff Osborne.

Quite simply, this series will be our best yet!

Bodog Fight: The Complete First Series is now available on DVD. The four-disk set comes packed with more than ten hours of non-stop action and a ton of extra features, including fighter commentary, new behind the scenes footage and six never-before-seen fights.
