Blazing with momentum and popularity, BodogFight -- the cutting edge mixed martial arts showcase of digital entertainment mogul Calvin Ayre -- sends heavyweight competitors Mark Burch and Mario Rinaldi into battle Tuesday night on the Men's Outdoor and Recreation channel, DISH network, Comcast, Cox, Time Warner and online at

"Mark and Mario are BodogFight's largest specimens to date, not only in physical stature but in character as well," said Calvin Ayre, founder of the Entertainment Group that includes acclaimed music label Bodog Music, responsible for the BodogFight soundtrack. "Both are hard-working, hard-hitting athletes here to make a statement about their toughness. The opportunity to represent their country in the USA versus Russia pay-per-view event has been at the forefront of their training agenda -- this bout determines who goes on and who goes home."

Burch brings his striking style and 7-1 record to this bout with a serious mindset. His involvement with BodogFight represents a life-changing opportunity. A win against Rinaldi would be even sweeter than his most notable victory to date -- a decision over Polish Olympic wrestler and two-time national champion, Adam Maciejewski.

Rinaldi's MMA experience is vastly different to that of Burch's. A former collegiate wrestler at Delaware State University, Rinaldi has overcome injury to prove himself as a worthy Brazilian jiu-jitsu combatant with a perfect 3-0 MMA record. Viewers will be captivated with his entertaining demeanor and explosive in-the-ring prowess, which includes his signature victory back flips.

Viewers will soon be able to cast their vote for the $50,000 prize at, where biographies of all the fighters, exclusive footage, unedited interviews and confrontations are available and updated each week.
