The revolving door of changes at the International Fight League continues to turn as former co-founder and commissioner Kurt Otto has stepped down from his previous role. He will now serve as matchmaker along with Bas Rutten and Shannon Knapp, as confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by representatives from the IFL.

According to a statement from the IFL, Otto is still the promotion’s largest shareholder, but his job behind the scenes will now be as matchmaker.

Otto founded the IFL along with friend and business partner Gareb Shamus in 2005. Shamus stepped down from the organization last year, resigning his role as CEO, being replaced by the current head of the company, Jay Larkin.

The IFL has been mired in financial problems recently, prompting Larkin to go as far as to say they were looking for new partners or to possibly sell the promotion depending on the given situation.
