wtf? these IFL guys aren't fuckin around.
sorry if it's a repost
What is the IFL? I haven't heard anything about it... haven't been browsing the MMA forums much lately.
New fight program/organization I can see... but is it big at all?
Teams led by Bas Rutten, Pat Miletich, Maurice Smith, and Renzo Gracie??
Yes it's big and they have a LOT of money. I can see a lot of the guys from UFC going over there if they get a chance. He has deeper pockets than Zuffa apparently and is willing to spend it.
when is this going to air? ppv?
joins as the broadcast team though
isn't he still going to fight in another organization
damn it, mother f'n a broad cast team $#(*&#($ I want to see him fight!! Oh well, better than nothng i guess.
it's going to be huge. teams vs teams instead of person vs. person
teams vs teams? i dont like it
i dunno about the teams based thing. sounds like a ploy to get noobs into it. They're probably gonna break the teams down once it's established and continue on like the conventional mma organizations. Its hard to imagine such an individual based sport having a team concept.
But either way, it's good to have a bigger organization take on UFC over here.
tag team survivor series mma
Royale Rumble MMA
the people who are financially backing IFL put UFC to shame...they've got TONS of cash.
what happened to UFC fighters and 6 figure contracts?
6 figures over 3 fucking years
me either. i'm interested in seeing it work though
just checked out that site...IFL looks hella gay.
Teams win when fighters win 3/5 rounds? Team ANACONDA VS SILVERBACKS?
gimme a break.
It's an individual sport.
did anyone else notice that 4/5/6 oz gloves may be used?? how's that gonna work?
yea I saw that, I guess everyones gonna go for the 4 oz, maybe they did that for legal reasons?
No I think IFL will have better fighters than most of the UFC guys can compete against.
Probably varies between the weight classes. It actually makes more sense that way.
Like in boxing, 16oz. gloves on a guy who's 6'3" 240 are tiny compared to a lightweight who is 5'8" 160. I guess they're going to be adjusting for the size difference.
