IFA World Heavyweight Champion, Pedro “The Rock” Rizzo arrived from Brazil, in Dallas, today (Monday, Aug. 27), Texas style with a cowboy hat atop his head. He’s in Dallas, finishing up preparations for his upcoming world title defense against Jeff “The Snowman” Monson this Saturday night (Sept. 1) at American Airlines Center.
The Rizzo vs Monson title bout will be one of ten mixed martial arts fights on the ART OF WAR 3, USA vs BRAZIL nationally televised Pay-Per-View event (10 p.m. Eastern, 7:00 p.m. Pacific).
For Rizzo, the cowboy hat says one thing. “I’m ready for a Texas shootout,” smiled Rizzo, undefeated as a world kickboxing champion. “They tell me that cowboys are tough guys, so I’m here to prove, I’m a touch guy. I don’t know if anyone will believe the Cowboy part, but they will know I’m a tough guy when it’s over.”
With 44 professional fights to his credit, 30-year-old Yves Edwards (Pictures) is well known to most mixed martial arts fans. The Bahamas-born Texan has been ranked among the world’s top lightweights since the turn of the century.
Edwards’ impressive record (31-12-1) has suffered a few blemishes of late, however, with a disappointing TKO loss (doctor stoppage) to Joe Stevenson (Pictures) in July 2006, followed by a defeat to Mike Brown, who won a unanimous decision in Bodog Fight: St. Petersburg.
Looking to get back to his winning ways, Edwards takes on Florida’s Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal (10-2) on an all new episode of Bodog Fight: New Jersey this Tuesday, August 28 at 11 p.m. / 10 p.m. Central on ION television and in Canada on The Fight Network.
With a growing legion of loyal fight fans in Canada, Bodog Fight and Score Media Inc. (TSX: SCR) are pleased to announce that the hardest hitting mixed martial arts show on television will now be available in Canada on The Score Television Network.
The Score is a national specialty television service providing sports, news, information, highlights and live event programming, and is available across Canada in over 6.2 million homes.
“We are thrilled to be partnering up with The Score,” said Calvin Ayre, the billionaire founder of Bodog Entertainment. “As a Canadian myself, I know first hand how passionate the country’s fight fans are, so I am especially pleased to be able to bring them Bodog Fight from coast to coast.”
