For Immediate Release

January 28, 2008

This week, don't miss an exciting light-heavyweight battle and a fierce clash of female warriors as Bodog Fight re-opens The Vault for more heart-pounding mixed martial arts action.

Tuesday, Jan. 29, visit Bodog TV’s award-winning website,, to watch a never-before-seen women’s bout between Julie Kedzie (4-4) and Jan “Cuddles” Finney (2-0).

Filmed at a recent HOOKnSHOOT event in Evansville, Ind., this fight was the second of the night for both women as part of an eight-woman “Grand Prix” tournament put together by Bodog Fight Commissioner Jeff Osborne.

Kedzie, from nearby Bloomington, was the clear crowd favorite and didn’t disappoint. The blonde bomber overpowered her first opponent, Missy Karr, with an onslaught of vicious strikes to win by referee stoppage.

Finney also impressed in her tournament opener. The Ohio native knocked out a game Mystee Blackwood to put her on a collision course with Kedzie in the semifinals, with the winner advancing to the championship match.

Can the not-so-cuddly “Cuddles” put the squeeze on Kedzie? Tune in and find out.

Saturday, Feb. 2, don’t miss a second all-new episode of Bodog Fight: The Vault featuring an exciting match between Canada’s Todd Gouwenberg (4-2) and American Ron Faircloth (19-11).

Faircloth is a submission specialist from Wisconsin fighting out of the Freestyle Academy, while the hard-hitting Gouwenberg trains with Bill Mahood, Kalib Starnes and Kultar Gill at the Revolution Fight Team in Surrey, BC.
