If a recent article by Media Life is an accurate indication of ION’s feelings about BodogFIGHT, then it looks as though the feeling about not wanting to continue a contractual relationship past Februay could be mutual as Calvin Ayre has issued a statement in response to the article:
“Since its inception in 2006, Bodog Fight has become one of the heavy-hitters in the world of mixed martial arts, offering fans a unique combination of action and allure from exotic locations throughout the world.
In fact, a fifth installment of the cutting-edge series is scheduled to debut August 21 in the U.S. on the ION Television Network, which has helped introduce the program to viewers in more than 90-million American homes.
A sixth season of Bodog Fight will be shot later this month in Vancouver, Canada for broadcast on ION from October 9, 2007 to February 5, 2008, thereby fulfilling the contract agreed to by both parties.
It is our intention to re-evaluate this relationship when this current deal expires to determine whether it is in the best interest of both going forward.”
Calvin Ayre, creator of Bodog Fight
