The International Fight League

A Mixed Martial Arts league co-founded my Gareb Shamus, publisher of Wizard, Toyfare and other comic-geek related fields...

My two worlds are colliding.

It's madness.

[But should be interesting.] - The International Fight League...for the sport of Mixed Martial Arts:
"Sometime in April 2006, the first four IFL fight teams will be unveiled at the organization’s inaugural event. Each team will consist of five fighters, one from each weight division represented in the league (lightweight, welterweight, middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight) and one coach.

On the first night of action, one team will vie against another, with ten fights taking place between two separate brackets. Each fight consists of 3/3 minute rounds and takes place back-to-back for non-stop action. The two winning teams (those that grasp at least 3 of their 5 fights) will square off six-eight weeks later and the first IFL championship team will be decided. Individual winners whose teams did not advance may also be invited back to compete in individual fights."
