Hey Kids, Want to Watch an MMA Promotion Die?

Observe, if you will, the death throes of the International Fight League. Beleaguered for its contrived teams and hemorrhaging money thanks to a faulty business model, the once-promising place where B-level fighters could get national exposure is now barely clinging to life. A press release from the promotion disseminated today reads, "International Fight League decides against August 15 event in New Jersey; organization working on financial situation". That says it all right there. And if you were a fan of MMA fights, or one of the many employees cut from their staff in recent months, well... you have MMA Journalist's deepest sympathies.
