Gonzalez and Thorpe Slug it Out on the Latest Episode of BodogFight

The action continues Tuesday on ION! Entertainment has unleashed its second season of mixed martial arts (MMA) action to fans worldwide in an incredible series of fights and behind-the-scenes drama. This week’s mixed martial arts action features a quartet of hard-hitting welterweights. On Tues. March 13th, the fury continues with Gonzalez vs. Thorpe and Noble vs. Ellenberger.

On Tuesday’s episode, Sweden’s Diego Gonzalez tussles with England’s Matt Thorpe, nicknamed "12-Gauge" because he claims he can hit the target from any range. The powerful 26-year-old striker will almost certainly look to maneuver Gonzalez into his sights. The slick Swede, meantime, is four years younger but has been a practitioner of the Shooto discipline since he was 12 years old. Gonzalez stands 5′ 8" and weighs 171lbs. His record is 6-3-0. Thorpe stands 6′ 4" and weighs 170 lbs. His record is 6-4-0.

These fighters will leave it all on the mat, 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.
