I would copy and paste is here, but it's pretty long, they are really trying to turn things around and the new CEO has made some drastic changes:

I only read the first article. So Bas is going to have a team in 2008? Sounds good.
More live events is good too. I didn't see anything else that was inspiring.

I don't know if this is going to work out perfectly, but at least they have a plan now. The fact that they seemed to be making it up as they went along in previous times made me not want to watch. I am one of the few people that has supported the IFL through thick and thin, and it's great to see that they finally have a plan.

Things looked pretty grim for the IFL only a couple of months ago, great to see they seem to have found their focus and may have turned things around in a big way. It seems that most of the MMA organizations out there with the exception of the UFC are all following M-1's footsteps and talking about co-promoted events. HDNet has jumped in with both feet and are showing 3 live MMA events (From 3 different organizations!) in the second half of December alone, and tonight on Inside MMA they promised at least 24 live events in 2008

UFC will be still be the big dog, but as an MMA fan I really think this will be a great upcoming year for MMA. With HDNet, IFL, M-1 and other organizations talking about sharing their fighters it promises the potential for some amazing events and hopefully we'll see Randy/Fedor late next year.

I'm not too happy about Carlos loosing his team. Bad news for Canada.

Hmmmm....... I hope they still keep the names like Anacondas, Pitbulls, Silverbacks etc. They don't have to put a city name in front. I don't think I could get used to calling the Anacondas Team Rutten or Pitbulls Team gracie. other than that, I think it looks to be good for the IFL. 2008 looks to be another promising year of MMA. Lookin forward to it.
