BodogFight Saves Its Battle of the Brawlers for Last
Surprise additional fight names final Team USA member
Prangley - Left, Uscola - Right With mixed martial arts (MMA) fans from around the world craving more furious action, BodogFight, the action-packed reality TV series created by digital entertainment mogul Calvin Ayre, surprises audiences with an added bout this week. The light heavyweight fight between veteran Trevor Prangley and brawler Kyacey Uscola airs tomorrow night with the victor earning the final spot on Team USA. This intense battle will be available on the Men's Outdoor and Recreation channel and online at www.bodogfight.com.
'Fans wanted more so I gave them the best bout BodogFight: Season One has to offer,' says Calvin Ayre, Founder of the Bodog.com Entertainment Group, the leading digital entertainment enterprise that recently announced its foray into the European and Asian markets. 'The light heavyweight class produces fighters who are fast, accurate and strategic. But if strategy fails, they have the deadly formula of speed and power to go toe-to-toe until one drops. Trevor and Kyacey will give fans an incredible brawl and the seven existing members of Team USA readily welcome their new teammate.'
Growing up on a farm in South Africa, Trevor Prangley was introduced to wrestling at a young age by his father, a move that initiated the development of his overcome-then-destroy mindset. His drive to succeed led Prangley to a national championship at age 23 and granted him the opportunity to compete for a spot on the South African Olympic wrestling team. This dream came to an abrupt end when he lost a crippling qualifying match and suffered a severe knee injury. Rather than retire from the sport, he moved to the United States and began studying Jiu Jitsu to maintain his fitness. This training regimen developed into a lifestyle and his willingness to diversify fighting styles allowed him to train with some of the world's top fighters, including Josh Thomson and Ken Shamrock. Gaining national attention in the U.S. over the last few years, Prangley has built an 11-4 record and brings his fierce desire to the BodogFight ring deep within the lush jungles of Central America.
His opponent, 'Ice Cold' Kyacey Uscola, brings a different approach to the ring with a 'Lights Out' striking style that's all about heavy hitting. He got this nickname for his reputation of ending fights early, particularly his five-second bout against Danny Payne at the XFS 1-extremeFight Series in July, which culminated with a devastating kick to the head leaving Payne lying on the canvas. Still considered an up-and-comer, Uscola already has accumulated impressive wins at KOTC Predator, Heavy Hitters and Outlaws earlier this year as well as 33-second knockout victory in a clash with Steve Ramerez last February. Fight audiences worldwide are in for some serious ring action in this battle leading up to the BodogFight pay-per-view finale later this year.
