International Fight League

Who watches it? What do you think of it? Where do you see it in the future and how will it affect MMA if at all?

I like it a lot btw, especially considering that Deividas Taurosevicius (NY Pitbulls) is my grappling coach.


The future of IFL? I am guessing they will continue to bleed money for several years trying to turn things around, or they will go under soon. I think IFL stock is selling for around ten cents a share now, down from about $17 a little over a year ago. The company should have stayed private, but that’s the least of their problems.

I’m not infatuated with the format, but I wish them the best. More opportunities for fighters to make money and get TV time is a good thing. Hopefully Bas Rutten can turn things around.
