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.
