IFL Grand Prix is contrived

con ·trived (kn-trvd)
Obviously planned or calculated; not spontaneous or natural; labored

Just in case you didn’t think the IFL Grand Prix was dumb enough as it is with 75% of the best fighters out with injuries, check this out:

The Fight Network is reporting that Wagnney Fabiano will no longer be facing Chris “The Polish Hammer” Horodecki at the IFL Grand Prix Finals on Dec. 29 at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. Chris Horodecki will now be facing Shad Lierley Dec. 29 for the IFL lightweight title.

According to the report, Fabiano will be making the drop to 145 lbs. and will be fighting for the IFL featherweight belt Dec. 29.

If you were scratching your head and saying ‘featherweights in the IFL?’, don’t worry! You are not suffering from loss of memory! There were no featherweights this season in the IFL … this is something they’re setting up to prepare for next year.

But hey, who cares if the constant shuffling of this ‘tournament’ completely removes any aspect of legitimacy. Why would the IFL care about that? Perhaps they think so few people are watching that they can just switch things up at their whims and not expect people to notice. And hey, up until this point, I didn’t really care. But when you start changing the finals matchups … well, that’s up there with the ‘Misaki Incident’ from last year’s Pride Bushido. Sketchballs.


    I have pretty much completely given up on the IFL. Stupid concept, retarded cards, lame fights ect. They need to just cut their loses and fuck off.

    I don’t care that much about the concept or the cards or anything, but since the fights are lame TOO there’s not much left to like, is there? Except the IFL is necessary for keeping up the blog flow over here. Hence, i love the IFL.

    Isn’t it obvious that they are trying to make Chris Horodecki the face of their promotion by making him a champion?

  • ilostmydog

    LOL wtf. That’s absolutely ridiculous.

    This is why I hate the IFL. The team idea is dumb. Chad Lierley is pretty good but no way he’ll win a decision aganist Chris “the face of IFL” Horodeski
