INTERNATIONAL FIGHT LEAGUE (IFL), FOX SPORTS NET PROVIDE CONSECUTIVE NIGHTS OF ORIGINAL ACTION SUNDAY AND MONDAY
First-ever airing of Matt Lindland-Jeremy Horn fight runs Sunday, Pitbulls-Silverbacks and Gracie-Miletich Superfight airs Monday as part of two hour “Best Damn Sports Show Period” Special
NEW YORK, September 28, 2006 – The International Fight League (IFL) will provide fans with two consecutive nights of action this coming Sunday, Oct. 1, and Monday night, Oct. 2, on Fox Sports Net. Sunday night, fans will get to see a one-hour special featuring the Jeremy Horn-Matt Lindland fight from Memorial Coliseum in Portland. On Monday night, the IFL and FSN will present a special two-hour prime-time edition of “The Best Damn Sports Show Period,” featuring last week’s battle between the Silverbacks and the Pitbulls. The team matchup will then be followed by the much-anticipated Pat Miletich-Renzo Gracie Superfight, which wrapped up the “World Team Championship” quarterfinal evening last Saturday at The Mark in Moline, Illinois. The Monday matchup will also see the legendary announce team of Stephen Quadros and Bas Rutten reunited for the first time in several years.
“These consecutive nights of IFL action will go on the ‘must-see’ list for all MMA fans, and being part of the ‘Best Damn Sports Show Period’ Monday night will be an added plus,” said IFL Commissioner and co-founder Kurt Otto. “The fans who witnessed these two events first hand will get to relive them on tape, while those around the country will be treated to the action they have only read about thus far for the first time.”
The Sunday night action on FSN is slated to run in most areas at 6:00 p.m. local time, with the exception of FSN Arizona, where it will air at 5:30 p.m. The show will also be re-broadcast throughout the week, and the entire FSN schedule is available online at www.ifl.tv.
The Monday night two-hour special will air in most markets at 8:00 pm. local time, with the exception of FSN Arizona, where it will air at 7:30 p.m. The show will also be re-broadcast later that night and throughout the week.
