BodogFight: St. Petersburg, Hooligan Battles Big Deisel

When fans tune into ION Television for this week’s all-new episode of hit TV series BodogFight: St. Petersburg, they’ll have a chance to get into the non-stop action and win $10,000 by voting for their favorite fighters. On Tuesday, March 20 at 11 p.m. / 10 p.m. Central four fierce light heavyweight mixed martial arts fighters will be doing their best to attract votes and fend off elimination.

In the first featured bout Canada’s Bill "The Butcher" Mahood (15-5-1) takes on Khalil "Scorpion Heart" Ibrahim (6-0) of the United Arab Emirates. The second bout features Steve "The Hooligan" Steinbeiss (7-0), a 25-year-old Englishman now fighting out of Arizona, and Jeff "Big Deisel" Ford (7-2) of Colorado.

When he’s not working his day job as a construction superintendent, Steve Steinbeiss is a Muay Thai kickboxer who trains with twin brothers Trevor and Todd Lally at Arizona Combat Sports

"The Hooligan" will have his hands full with Jeff Ford, a 36-year-old fighter with a resume boasting accolades such as three-time Muay Thai World Champion, two-time MMA Champion and Golden Gloves Champion. He’s trained with MMA luminaries such as Pat Miletich and Frank Shamrock, and appears on VH1’s Celebrity Fit Club as a trainer.

With an opportunity to compete at BodogFight’s April 14th pay-per-view spectacular "BodogFight: Fedor Emelianenko vs. Matt Lindland, Clash of the Nations" at stake, each of these MMA warriors will be out for blood.
