I didn’t see this one coming. Reported on MMAPayout, The UFC is apparently purchasing the International Fight League (IFL).
The IFL has a large stable of young talent, some of which we are already seeing fight for the UFC (Horodecki, Blackburn, Markham, and Gusmao).
A Senior Producer at HDNet’s Inside MMA tells MMAPayout.com that the IFL will be bought by the UFC.
MMAPayout.com has confirmed talks between the IFL and UFC.
