Most of the fighters on the IFL’s August card found out that the show was canceled via the internet or friends. I’m assuming this is because IFL head Jay Larkin fired pretty much everyone working for the company, so there was no one left to make the phone calls (and perhaps no phones left to make the calls themselves). But don’t worry folks: the guys at the top will be juuuuuuust fine:
The article does let us now that the IFL has about $2 million in cash on hand, which will mainly be used to tide over the executive level through the third quarter as they still actively look to sell or merge with another company.
If that wasn’t enough to piss you off, check out this quote from the head honcho himself:
Jay Larkin surveys the inaction with a weary, seen-it-all expression. “This isn’t my idea of fighting,” he says of the world’s fastest-growing spectator sport. “To me, two guys rolling around on the floor is tedious, like watching gay foreplay.”
That entire article is worth reading just to remind you how fucking stupid nearly anyone over the age of 50 sounds when they write about MMA.
