Russian Comrades Do Battle As Bodog Fight Opens 'The Vault'

Both national and state pride are on the line this week as Bodog Fight opens The Vault for a pair of thrilling mixed martial arts fights.

Tuesday, Feb. 19, visit Bodog TV's award-winning website, bodoglife.net/fight, to watch a never-before-seen middleweight bout between Sultan Tikhayev and Alexander Kokoev.

These Russian comrades squared off near Red Square at the MegaSport Ice Arena in Moscow just a few weeks ago for Bodog Fight: Russia vs. USA.

Both were coming off tough defeats. Tikhayev (3-2) was hoping to rebound from a first-round submission loss to unbeaten Frenchman Karl Amoussou, while Kokoev (0-1) had come up short four months prior in his first pro fight, when he was choked out by lethal Armenian Gegard Mousasi.

Without giving away the result, it is interesting to note that the winner of this fight walked away with a broken nose.

Which Russian prevails, albeit with a sore beak? Tune in and find out.

Saturday, Feb. 23, don't miss a second all-new episode of Bodog Fight: The Vault featuring an exciting bantamweight match between Pete Sabala and Anthony Figueroa.

These two Californians did battle in front of a packed house at the HP Pavilion in San Jose for Strikeforce: Four Men Enter, One Man Survives, presented by Bodog Fight.

Sabala (1-1) fights out of Brian Warren's Unbreakable Gym in San Bernardino, while Figueroa (2-1) trains at fellow Strikeforce sensation Cung Le's Gym in San Jose, making him the hometown crowd favorite.

With numerous knockdowns, submission attempts and a controversial ending, this fight has it all.

Which Golden State warrior has his arm raised in victory?

The answer lies within The Vault.

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.
