This Tuesday and Saturday, Bodog Fight: The Vault will feature new hard-hitting webisodes on Bodog TV's multi-award winning website, bodoglife.net/fight

Tuesday, December 11 tune in for a never-before-seen heavyweight fight between Russia's Sergey Kaznovsky (8-5) and American Jerome Smith (6-7) filmed in June 2006 at a Bodog Fight sponsored MFC event in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Fighting out of Americus, Georgia, Smith is a tough journeyman who always comes to brawl, while Kaznovsky is a Sambo fighter who ranks behind only Fedor and Aleksander Emelianenko in the famed Russian combat sport.

"Kaznovsky fought on our pay-per-view card last year and lost a brutal unanimous decision to Mario Rinaldi," says Bodog Fight matchmaker Eric Nicholl.

"The thing I remember most about him is that he likes to NOT shower for several days before a fight, so that he stinks like a skunk by the time he climbs into the ring. If I were his opponent, I'd certainly think twice before getting into a clinch with him."

Saturday, December 15 don't miss a second episode of The Vault as Matt "The Destroyer" Troyer (2-1) takes on newcomer John Turner (0-1).

"Turner has astonishing wrestling skills," says HOOKnSHOOT founder and Bodog Fight commissioner Jeff Osborne.

"He was a West Point Military Academy wrestler, and you have to be invited to be on that team. There is no scholarship, no walk-ons, no B-S. You have to be exceptionally skilled to get that call."

Filmed in September, 2007 at a Bodog Fight sponsored HOOKnSHOOT event in Evansville, Indiana this is a featherweight title rematch, with Troyer having knocked out Turner six months prior with a flying knee.

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.
