    There a young orginization that's making some good moves and signed a TV deal with FSN.They have a team format which sets them apart from everyone else.In the team format they have coaches(Pat Militich,Bas Rutten,Maurice Smith,andRenzo Gracie among others)They have 5 figthts a HW,LHW,MW,WW, and LW fight.One fighter from each weight divison will be representing there coach.The coach with the most wins on that night is the winner and goes up in the standings.It's a pretty cool concept.

    It's a new MMA organization. They are using a team format for their matches. They've only had about 3 shows so far, though someone else may correct me on the exact number. Here's a link: http://www.internationalfightleague.com/Index.aspx

    i think someone on this board (maybe kass101, as he seems to be pretty up on k1 doings) mentioned something about quicker ppv airdates for future k1/heroes events.

    nevermind, it's just Hero's 5 from a couple of months ago. It's still cool that they will finally show it on PPV. Hopefully they show the upcoming GPs on a quicker delay. It sucks knowing the results 2 months before the PPV airs.

    heroes on espn would be nice, but i saw a mention of the heroes middleweight event on events indemand... yup. july 14th.
    Hell yeah! Thanks for the news. Finally they put Hero's on PPV. I wonder how long the delay is though.

    ESPN cant air any MMA other then K1. They signed some rediculous contract with them, but I think that contract is coming to an end pretty soon or its another 5 years left, I cant really remember. But to think that can K1 can get ESPN to air Hero's, would be pretty damn cool.

    Personally the I think the WFA card looks pimp as hell but I'm not sure how good of a card it is from a business point of view. Looking at the lineup, the WFA is dumping ALOT of money into this card. Most of the guys on there don't come cheap but even so they aren't very recognizable names to the general American MMA fan. This is a card for the hardcore fans (which is why we all love it) but in the end hardcore fans aren't where the money is at, theres just not enough of us compared to the general fans.
