NEW YORK, November 26, 2007 — The International Fight League (OTC.BB:

cage fighting that has been the norm, will have a much greater
mainstream appeal,” said IFL CEO Jay Larkin. “We are very pleased to be
able to join the ITV lineup.”
ITV joins an ever-growing international TV lineup for IFL programming,
which includes MyNetworkTV and FSN in the United States, MBC in the
