Chael Sonnen v. Tim McKenzie – BodogFIGHT
An organization ahead of its time. With Dana White stating that the UFC will be hosting events on a private island, we look at the organization who more of less perfected that style. Bodog’s Calvin Ayre was focused on his gambling empire, but when Bodog created events you knew you were in for a treat. In 2007, Bodog hosted BodogFIGHT: Costa Rica Combat, featuring a young Chael Sonnen v. Tim McKenzie.
In one of the shortest bouts of Sonnen’s career, Sonnen went for the shoot in order to take the legs down. Already stunning McKenzie, Sonnen tripped McKenzie down and locked in the D’arce choke, the first of his career, for the quick tap at 13 seconds. The atmosphere and overall setup was something straight out of a reality show.

One of the top karate stars in the world, Sandra Sanchez is a multi-time gold medalist. Just recently, Sanchez won her third Karate 1-Premier League medal in three years. In the finals in Salzburg, Sanchez beat Sakura Kokumai, the same person she beat in the finals in Dubai.
She was on her way to the Olympics until they were postponed as a result of the coronavirus. Check out the extended profile of Sanchez as she waits once again for her moment to shine.
A.J. McKee Exclusive
One of the most dynamic fighters in MMA today, A.J. McKee spoke to FIGHT SPORTS about a variety of topics. McKee (16-0) talked about recovering from an injury he suffered at the hands of Derek Campos at Bellator 236. He also made it a point to imagine himself holding the Bellator Featherweight title, currently owned by Patricio Freire.
McKee is set to face Darrion Caldwell at Bellator 244 in Chicago. If he wins he moves to the finals of the Featherweight Grand Prix. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is unknown if the event will happen as planned.
Robert Helenius Exclusive
Before he shocked the world and beat Adam Kownacki inside the Barclays Center, Robert Helenius knew the outcome of the fight before it happened. In this FIGHT SPORTS exclusive, Helenius spoke about why he got into boxing and what motivates him.
The game plan heading into the fight in Brooklyn was similar to what he had in mind. When Helenius raised his arms in the air, he knew just how special the win was.
Ann Wolfe Knocks Out Vonda Ward
Sixteen years ago, one of the most brutal knockouts in boxing today took place in Biloxi, Mississippi. Fighting for the WBA and IBA Light Heavyweight Titles, Ann Wolfe was considered the underdog in her bout against Vonda Ward. At that point, Wolfe was 17-1 with one no-contest while Ward was a perfect 18-0.
It only took less than a minute before Wolfe drove Ward down to the canvas with a vicious right hand to the jaw. With CSI Sports / FIGHT SPORTS covering the fight, the brutal image of Ward falling to the ground is other-worldly. In 2010, Wolfe told the AV Club that she felt Ward underestimated her.
It is a moment that will live the test of time, not just for women’s boxing but for the entire sport.
