IFL on 60 Minutes this Sunday

Since there's been a little talk about the IFL lately I found this from their website:

New York, NY - CBS' "60 Minutes" will air a segment on the growing popularity of mixed martial arts, featuring IFL coaches and MMA legends Pat Miletich and Renzo Gracie this Sunday, December 10th at 7 p.m. EST.

The segment, done by "60 Minutes" reporter Scott Pelley, takes an in-depth look at the nuances of MMA and why it has become the fighting sport of choice for America and the world.

“This is yet another example of how the sport of mixed martial arts continues to gain traction in the mainstream,” said IFL co-founder and Commissioner Kurt Otto. “It is great that champions like Pat and Renzo, along with our other coaches and all the great athletes that they train, such as UFC champion Matt Hughes (who is featured in the segment) and others, are steadily getting more and more recognition for all their years of hard work and dedication."

Pelley trained with both Gracie and Miletich, and the “60 Minutes” cameras were on site when their two teams met at The MARK in Moline, Illinois, on September 23, the same night Gracie took on Miletich in the main event Superfight. The piece will also look at UFC champion Hughes, his career and his relationship with Miletich.

ya I was thinking the same thing, why would they put that and not something about the UFC which is becomming so big in the North America. Or maybe something about PRIDE, but whatever its still good for the sport to be shown on 60minutes in a good light.

well, we can't be sure it's good yet! i mean, they can interview someone then thave commentary sounding however they want. you don't know what "clips" they'll show, or what questions they asked that can be spun in some negative way. honestly, i don't see 60 mintues puting MMA in a good light yet! it'll be somewhat negative...

Yeah hopefully it won't be another attack like that O'Reilly interview with Dana White and Rich Franklin.
