Ive got a bad feeling that the IFL is going under very soon which is bad for the sport in general. I love my free shows on cable and i would like more of them and i think their failure may stop more of them from starting.

The IFL has been walking a tightrope for a while now, I am hoping showing their events live now on HDNet will help matters, but HDNet is still accessable by so few people (Thankfully I am one of the lucky ones that has this channel)that it may not make any difference at all. Having Xtreme Couture onboard as one of the camps this year will help too as the power of his name will help bring exposure. I guess we will have to wait and see how things pan out.

I think the IFL is going to rebound in 08' with the new structure. Not saying they are going to take over the MMA world or anything, but I don't think they are calling it quits just yet.

If they want to make money they have to spend it first...make fighters want to join the league, that's what it is all about. Without quality fighters an MMA company has nothing!
