    i missed all the fight broadcasts because i didn't have cable during the season. but i cannot wait for this next season. i love the concept, setting up young fighters to train with some of the best coaches in MMA. Miletich, Coleman, Bas. it gives the young guys a good shot individually, because they gain a strong new base in their training, along with recognition, to aid their careers outside the IFL.
    I will have to keep an eye out for it. When does the season start? A lot of MMA on TV now-a-days.

    So IFL comes on Fox Sports Network. I wonder if DISH carries that channel. Is that the same station that PRIDE is on?

    True, but if Dana did say that, it was probably out of spite & he calmed down & had a rethink since. The last I heard about the court case stuff was before the IFL had their first show so there's a lot of water under the bridge since.

    Joe Rogan was also in the audience of one of the events and had positive things to say about the IFL.

    If it wasn't for that fact the UFC would not have filed suit.

    The main thing that was debateable was how important the stolen documents were.
    OK thanks, I didn't know about the documents. If that's the case you can see UFC's point.

    I just didn't like Dana going on about "fucking crushing them" (the IFL) & I read Militech's release stating that he believes Zuffa's litigation was based purely on stamping out competition. I also heard Dana said that anyone working with the IFL will never be welcome back to the UFC.

    Anyway's back on the subject, I've not watched any of the IFL cos I can't get it either, but on the one hand it looks like a good idea because, let's face it, it could easily be Militech Fighting System Gym Vs Hammerhouse Gym. Yet on the other hand it's a team concept & the thing with mma is that it's mano e mano, may the best man win.

    I've already bought tickets for the Sept 9th show in Portland, Oregon. Looking forward to seeing a big production fight. I have been to several "Sport fights" and although being very entertaining I have yet to be involved in a big MMA event. So go Tigersharks!

    My two cents.

    Dana White has his panties in a twist cos he says Evans has knowledge of Zuffa company secrets, which he can use to the IFL's advantage.

    So he's suing them. Frankly this kind of stuff is only harming mma's reputation as it is highly unlikely this is about trade secrets, more though cos Evans left UFC for a rival company.

    Geez - I just taped the premier of The Contender over the last IFL show for a buddy whose power went out on Tuesday night or I would have sent it to you.
    The fights are good, but the telecast doesn't have the same energy as a UFC show. If you are logging onto this site and posting here, you would def. enjoy watching it. It's obvious that the Militich guys embrace the team concept, not clear one way or the other if the other teams are buying into it.
