According to IFL senior vice president of communications Joe Favorito, the team-based MMA promotion will turn out the lights July 31 as its assets are sold to a yet-to-be-named buyer, confirmed today by several anonymous sources as the UFC ownership group Zuffa LLC….The buyout, which will mirror Zuffa’s takeover and subsequent closure of the now defunct WFA and PRIDE FC organizations in 2007 will see the UFC and WEC’s parent company take control of the rights to current IFL contracts as well as the promotion’s video library.
Rumors of the pending sale of the IFL has be floating around for weeks, but now it seems like July 31 marks the end of the IFL. I guess this means we won’t be seeing the IFL’s latest creation, The IFL Hex.
