Bodog Domain Names Seized

If you haven’t noticed the Bodog websites are offline. According to Shoemoney,

Apparently, some guy in the US who was awarded a patent for something to do with taking bets online filed a lawsuit against Bodog awhile back. Bodog didn’t respond because they are not a US company. So a judge awarded a default judgment of 50 million.

Yesterday, the guy with the judgment used it to seize control of Bodog’s domain names from Enom. Almost all of their sites are now offline, and now they are going to loose all of their SERPS.

Calvin Ayre gives an explanation on his new website, NEWBODOG.COM

Welcome to the new (temporary) Bodog. As you may know by now, Bodog.com is experiencing a technical issue impacting our players’ ability to access our website.

This is the result of a legal dispute over the ownership of the Bodog.com domain name. We are fighting this dispute. We are confident that we will win, but until all is settled, I do not want our battle to interrupt your play.

So, I present you with newbodog.com. You won’t notice very many changes: same website, same brand, same product, and same service. Just a new domain name.

We are working to resolve any remaining issues on the temporary site as soon as possible, and fully expect to have our original site back up shortly.

I sincerely apologize if you were affected by our interruption and assure you that I will update you soon.

Regards,

Calvin Ayre

We will have to see the outcome of this scandal. Bodog is the leading online sports book for MMA and many websites use Bodog as an affiliate. How this will effect future Bodog MMA events is still unknown. Something as simple as a domain name could end up costing Bodog billions in sales and advertising. I don’t expect Bodog to get back the domain name anytime soon.

Dana White: Cro Cop vs. Couture A Possibility

Could Randy’s next opponent be Mirko Cro Cop, well Dana White thinks its a an option. In a statement to the Croation News site Javno, White indicated that if Cro Cop wins his next fight against Check Kongo at UFC 75, a title shot against Randy Couture could be a possibility.

He made a lot of mistakes, he did not train in the cage, he let his ego get the better of him, White said.

Usually when he returns from a defeat, Mirko is very angry and good. I am convinced that we will see a completely different Cro Cop. I must admit I can hardly wait for the fight because I think it will be his first real fight since arriving in the UFC, he said.

It has been reported that Mirko already knows his next opponent if he wins against Kong. Allegedly it should be Minotaur.

We never said that, White said.

I still do not know who his opponent will be is he wins against Kong, but a fight against randy Couture for the title is possible. Anything is possible here, White said.
