International Fight League

This is something that has just sprung up recently. The IFL has 4 teams, the format is somewhat like that of High School Wrestling. Each team has a representative from each weight class. It is in a ring but the rules are similar to that of the UFC. You may strike, takedown, grapple, submit. This airs on FOX sports. Tonight it is on at 7pm. These are more up and coming fighters that geta chance to work with top flight coaches. Pat Miletich, Silverbacks Coach, currently trains Matt Hughes (welterweight champ and Tim Sylvia, Heavyweight Champ (both of the UFC). Maurice Smith is a former UFC Champ and world renowned kickboxer. If youhave a chance check it out. The premier fight was a couple of weeks ago and it was pretty exciting.
