If the IFL closes...

It's no secret they aren't the most financially successful fight org, not saying they are going under, but if they did...

Who goes where? And how successful will they be?

The biggest question has to be Chris Horodecki. Where do you think the golden boy of the IFL would end up, and how would he fare?

Other fighters as well, any opinions.

I think Chris would have to go UFC, I can't see him in EXC, not after the last weak event (of course cash is always a good motivator). I think UFC's promotion machine would jump all over the kid, unless there is something I don't know about.

As to the rest of the pack, I see a few of the guys getting picked up by Dana and co. but a lot belong in Weak XC IMO.

How do you know they are not doing well financially? Just because they don't have UFC calibur deals/contracts or production, doesn't mean they are not doing well financially. They are making from my understanding, which is always a good thing for a business.

They just crowned their first LHW champion and will crown champions for other divisions in December. I think they will keep the 'team aspect' of the organization but will have more 1 on 1 fights for the belts. I personally would like to see the team aspect done with. We know who the great fighters are, we know who the cans are, as well as the up and comers for the IFL. They should be done with the team aspect and focus on the divisions and the belts.

War Horodecki!

Of course, they could turn it around, but there's nothing to suggest that they will. I'm not sure replacing 'legendary' MMA coaches with newer ones and holding fights with non-IFL teams will do any good. Dropping the team concept would be the best thing they could do.

WoW, you can pick up shares for .35 cents? I wouldn't but would be a cool memento when the stocks split or are re-issued

If the IFL closes a lot of guys will just be back in there gyms fighting in smaller orgs until they get a call from a big boy show.

I mean the best thing the IFL does is it takes guys in gyms and lets them get fights on a big stage against good fighters. I mean Hordecki would still be in TKO if it wasn't for the IFL. Rothwell would be another version of Buentello just less known.

If the IFL folds the middle guys will go back to there gyms and smaller shows probably in connection with Pro Elite but not Elite XC maybe Cage Rage, KOTC, or ICON.

Top Guys will probably be split between Elite XC, M-1, K-1, and HDnet. One or Two probably Hordecki and maybe Rothwell will sign with the UFC but Dana isn't a big fan of anyone who has anything to do with the IFL.
