Bodog Fight Billionaire Makes UFC President an Offer He CanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t Refuse
June 15, 2007 - Press Release Bodog Fight
In response to recent comments made by Ultimate Fighting Championship president Dana White, Bodog Fight founder Calvin Ayre is pleased to extend a once-in-a-lifetime offer to his mixed martial arts rival.
WhiteÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s unfortunate public diatribe included slanderous comments about the Canadian billionaire, referring to the online gaming mogul as a Ã¢â‚¬Å“criminalÃ¢â‚¬Â. The notoriously bald UFC promoter goes on to liken Mr. Ayre to a Richard Pryor character, stating Ã¢â‚¬Å“heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s like that guy in BrewsterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Millions who is trying to spend all his money in 48 hours.Ã¢â‚¬Â
With July 14thÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Bodog Fight: Eddie Alvarez vs. Matt Lee marking AyreÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first event on U.S. soil, the digital entertainment icon is referencing another Hollywood film, The Godfather, by making White Ã¢â‚¬Å“an offer he canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t refuse.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Sources tell me DanaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a big Bodog Fight fan,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Ayre. Ã¢â‚¬Å“He must be. He canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t stop talking about us. Personally, I love it when he keeps mentioning my organization in the media. He doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t seem to realize that each time he does, he only makes me more money, which is why I want to repay him by allowing him to experience the luxurious lifestyle I am fortunate to enjoy for 48 hours.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Since, regrettably, I am unable to attend the upcoming Bodog Fight event in New Jersey, I will offer to send my private jet – complete with an assortment of beautiful Bodog Girls – to pick up Mr. White, wherever he may be. I will then fly him to the east coast where he will enjoy a front row seat to our next event, followed by a VIP evening including a comfortable five-star overnight stay in a nearby Atlantic City hotel. After hitting the poker tables, Mr. White can retire to his lavish suite, sip the finest champagne and relax in the knowledge that all amenities and services are complimentary as my way of saying Ã¢â‚¬Ëœthank-youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ for all the money he keeps making me.Ã¢â‚¬Â
All Mr. White has to do is send his R.S.V.P. to [email protected] and the wheels will be put into motion.
