INTERNATIONAL FIGHT LEAGUE (IFL) RECEIVES APPROVAL FROM NEVADA STATE
ATHLETIC COMMISSION TO HOLD COMPETITIONS IN THE STATE

NEW YORK, December 6, 2006- The International Fight League (OTC.BB:
IFLI), the world's first team-based professional mixed martial arts
league, today announced that it has received permission from the Nevada State
Athletic Commission to conduct MMA events in the state, beginning in
2007. IFL Commissioner and co-founder Kurt Otto and President and
co-founder Gareb Shamus met with the commission on Tuesday in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“We are very grateful that this process is completed, and that the
commission has given us permission to move forward and schedule
events,” Otto and Shamus said in a joint statement. “It is another
important step forward for the IFL as we grow and develop our business model,
and its great news for both the fans of the sport and our business
partners, since Nevada is the epicenter of all fight sports and the
commission is made up of some of the most respected people not only in the
fight world, but in all of professional sports.”

The approval by the Nevada commission is the latest in a series of
solid business developments for the IFL. Other recent announcements in the
last week have included:

* The addition of the 12th and final team for 2007 (the Red Bears
based in Chicago),
* The announcement of the full 2007 IFL schedule
* The move to make the IFL a publicly-traded company

The 11 date slate will include events in eight different states and
begins with four teams, including the Nevada-based Lions (coached by
legend Ken Shamrock) facing the San Jose-based Razorclaws (coached by his
brother, world champion Frank Shamrock) at the ORACLE Coliseum on Friday
January 19 in Oakland, California. Ken Shamrock recently held an open
tryout in Reno for team hopefuls, and attracted over 150 competitors to
the half-day event.

The IFL has announced 10 of the 11 sites thus far, and will announce
the final site (to be held in mid-June of 2007) in the next week to 10
days.
