With the final battle between Trevor Prangley and Kyacey Uscola now complete, BodogFight, the hit mixed martial arts (MMA) reality TV series created by Bodog .com Entertainment Group Founder Calvin Ayre , makes fan opinion matter as the polls to crown the BodogFight Favorite Fighter are now open. Fans can visit http://www.bodogfight.com/contests to cast their votes for the gladiator they deem worthy of an additional $50,000 paycheck.
Each fan who votes is also eligible to win an ultimate mixed martial arts prize package, complete with a five-day trip to Los Angeles , fight lessons and up to $10,000 in cash.
As part of the PPV event, one of the three Superfights will showcase Roger Gracie in his professional MMA fight debut. With an incredible tournament showdown and the introduction of a new Gracie family member to MMA fans worldwide, the Bodog Fight main event is shaping up to be the largest and most exciting event of its kind.
“We have utilized every technical aspect possible in this contest to ensure fan participation directly impacts one athlete’s financial award,” says Calvin Ayre , whose vast digital empire includes Bodog Music, the international record label responsible for the incredible soundtrack heard each week on BodogFight. “The ability to vote either through text messaging, online or using DISH networks i-Ad campaign ensures no fan’s voice will go unheard.”
BodogFight is the first sports league to reach beyond traditional programming and offer fans more enjoyment from their TV viewing without ever having to leave their seats. Developed by DISH Network and TMG, the comprehensive iTV campaign consists of a “trigger,” or on-screen prompt, that takes the BodogFight viewers to an i-Ad, or web-like environment, on their TV. From this space, viewers can watch a ¼ screen of the episode in progress while also instantly voting for their favorite fighter and entering for the trip to L.A.
With advertisers developing powerful new methods to connect with viewers beyond the traditional broadcast, Bodog Fight is committed to bringing these advances to MMA fans worldwide, giving them access to a deeper level of enjoyment beyond what TV regularly offers.
On December 2, the first season of BodogFight culminates with a groundbreaking global clash as Team USA takes on Russia in a pay-per-view extravaganza being broadcast live from Vancouver , Canada . A few days later, the second season of the TV series, which has already reached more than 43 million homes in America , begins filming in gorgeous St. Petersburg , Russia .
