Jeremy Horn and Carlos Newton, the IFL Debut of Mike Dolce, Visits with
Matt “Suave” Horwich and The Return of Ryan Schultz

NEW YORK, April 5, 2007- The International Fight League (OTC.BB: IFLI),
the world’s first team-based professional mixed martial arts league,
will take fans into the ring and behind the scenes this week with
Olympic silver medalist Matt Lindland (Portland, Ore.) as he trains his
Wolfpack and readies himself for fights against MMA legend Jeremy Horn and
fellow IFL coach Carlos Newton. “IFL Battleground,” the new series
chronicling the league, is presented every Monday at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT
(7:00 p.m. CT/MT), on MyNetworkTV.

Featured athletes in this episode will include:

* Lightweight Ryan Schultz (Gresham, Ore.), a former wrestler at the
University of Nebraska who is bouncing back from a December knockout at
the hands of Bart Palaszewski.
* Light Heavyweight Matt Horwich (Gresham, Ore.), who has risen from
homelessness to use his Christian lifestyle as a basis for success both
in and out of the ring.
* Middleweight Mike Dolce (Belmar, N.J.), a former accountant who has
now taken up MMA and training as his full-time profession.

Among the nine fights in the program will be two never-before-televised
bouts featuring Lindland, the world’s top-ranked middleweight. The
Wolfpack mentor will take on Horn in one of the fights and Toronto
Dragons coach Carlos Newton in the other. “IFL Battleground” will also
feature behind the scenes footage taken at Lindland’s home with his
family.
