    New York – July 31, 2006 – International Fight League™ CEO Gareb Shamus today unveiled four additional team logos for the IFL events which will take place at the Rose Quarter in Portland, Oregon on September 9 and at The Mark in Moline, Illinois on September 23. The addition of the Wolfpack (training in Portland, Oregon), the Dragons (training in Tokyo, Japan) the Sabres (training in Toronto, Ontario) and the Razorclaws (training in San Jose, California) will bring to eight the number of IFL teams to date. The full IFL season will kick off in the first quarter of 2007.

    “We are very excited to add these four teams to our initial group that we unveiled in the spring,” Shamus said. “The combination of seeing these world champion coaches and their world class athletes should be quite a treat for the live events in Portland and Moline as we build toward 2007 and beyond.”

    Additionally, Shamus announced that world champion Frank Shamrock will join the coaching staff, overseeing the Razorclaws. Shamrock will join a coaching staff for the fall that already includes Olympic silver medalist Matt Lindland (Wolfpack), World heavyweight wrestling champion and Hall-of-Famer Antonio Inoki (Dragons) and World Welterweight champion Carlos “The Ronin” Newton (Sabres).

    The team participants will be announced shortly.

    “Frank Shamrock is both a world champion athlete and one of the most well-respected coaches in the MMA community,” Shamus added. “Bringing him on board now further strengthens what was already a solid lineup of world class coaches.”

    Founded in 2006 by Kurt Otto, a highly successful real estate investor and a life-long martial arts participant and Gareb Shamus, chairman of the comics empire Wizard Entertainment Group, the International Fight League™ (IFL) and Pure Sport™ were created to establish a centralized and structured organization that brings the power and influence of the mixed martial arts industry together.
