BodogFIGHT television update
need an account on ProElite site(free) to read
After it had appeared that BodogFIGHT had lost their Tuesday night television time slot on ION at 11 p.m. ET, it looks like the show will return resume airing in that spot next week. There had been speculation that ION wanted to pull the show in favor of paid program but it sounds as if they’ve recanted. BodogFIGHT can also be seen on the network every Saturday at 11 p.m. ET as well.
There could be a significant change to the format of the show in coming weeks. Rehearsals began this week on a new news-style MMA show that will be hosted by Jeff Osborne and Paul Lazenby. The idea is similar to what HDNet is currently doing with their “Inside MMA” program each Friday night at 9:30 p.m. ET but this is a concept that Osborne has been pushing for quite some time.
Speaking of Osborne, sources have informed ProElite.com that he’s been granted even more control within BodogFIGHT. Osborne is a long-time MMA promoter who serves as the company’s commissioner. He also runs Hook N Shoot promotion out of the midwest.
Hook N Shoot recently ran a successful show and many of the matches will find their way onto BodogFIGHT’s weekly TV show in the near future.

Congrats to Jeff! It’s about time all his hard work (especially for women’s MMA) pays off!
