Welterweights Will Take Ring in BodogFight Week 2

In week two of BodogFight's Season 2, St.Petersburg, welterweight fighters will take to the ring next, to compete for a spot on the promotion's upcoming April 9th pay per view card, "Clash of Nations", that will also take place in the historical Russian city. In this week's upcoming bout between the two fighters in the American bracket, UFC veteran Steve Berger will face off against BodogFight season 1 contestant Jorge Masvidal. Berger has been competing since 1998, and carries a well traveled record of 17-15-2. The St.Louis fighter has been in the ring with a who's who resume of MMA that includes the likes of Jake Shields, Din Thomas, Robbie Lawler and Jason Black. Berger's most notable wins include victories over Shonie Carter, Rich Clementi, and Pete Spratt.

Masvidal is far less experienced then Berger with a record of 9-2, but the Floridian can also boast of some impressive victories. In last season's BodogFight, Masvidal worked his way to a majority decision victory over Keith Wisniewski, and also has a TKO win over Joe Lauzon at the Absolute Fighting Championship 12 in April 2005. Masvidal's only losses have come to Raphael Assuncao and Paul Rodriguez two years ago, since that time, the welterweight fighter has won three bouts in a row.
