While it was always known Bodog Fight was losing money, it was also understood that the promotion was used as a way to draw more interest to the Bodog online gambling site.
But it appears that the losses have become too large. Bodog Fight, the mixed martial arts promotion launched by billionaire Calvin Ayre, has closed its doors.
MMAFighting.com learned Thursday from former employees of the promotion that Ayre has discontinued Bodog Fight to focus on his online gambling empire.
Bodog Fight held its first show in August 2006 and ran thirteen dates until February 2008. The promotion was seen on ION Televison, Men's Outdoor and Recreation Network and pay-per-view.
