Danny Acosta: What will be the impact the IFL had on the sport looking back?

Bas Rutten: Oh, [laughs] another company that tried and didn’t work. That’s it right there. I have no clue why it happened. I thought the company was a great company. They produced great fighters and got really good really fast. It shows now in the UFC, they’re everywhere. They’re all good…it was a great experience…[The IFL] blew a lot of money, but it’s too late. It’s always easy to talk afterwards. They produced some good fighters. The good part is they released the fighters, so everybody’s fighting.

DA: Out of all the guys that signed with the UFC (Reese Andy, Rory Markham, Jim Miller etc.), who will have the most success?

You know, before I really got into MMA, I always thought Bas was nothing more than a clown. It's amazing how quickly YouTube can change your thoughts about something.

Bas is everything that is right about MMA. He's got a great image. He's got all the charisma and personality in the world. Not to mention the fact that he was practically indistructible.

Respect the liver shot, Bas Rutten for President!

I'm just hoping that EXC doesn't follow in the IFL footsteps. I love my free MMA. At one time I had IFL, EXC, Tapout, TUF, Pride re-runs, and Strikeforce. It was awesome!! Then I had the monthly UFCs.....good times!
