Mark Kerr vs. Mike Whitehead in the IFL!

    Fri, 2006-09-29 16:01 — Bevois

    INTERNATIONAL FIGHT LEAGUE (IFL) ADDS DANIEL GRACIE vs. ALLAN GOES AND
    MARK KERR vs. MIKE WHITEHEAD SUPERFIGHTS TO WORLD TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP SEMIFINALS IN NOVEMBER

    Legendary Matchups will round out semifinals at site to be announced
    shortly

    NEW YORK, September 26, 2006-- The International Fight League (IFL)
    today announced the addition of two Superfights for the November World
    Team Championship semifinals. The matchups will have Daniel Gracie facing
    Allan Goes in one fight and Mark Kerr taking on Mike Whitehead in the
    other. Those two fights will follow the team semifinal matchups,
    featuring Bas Rutten's Anacondas vs. Matt Lindland's Wolfpack in one matchup,
    and Pat Miletich's Silverbacks vs. Carlos Newton's Dragons in the
    other.

    The location, date and time of the IFL World Team Championship
    semifinal will be announced shortly.

    "We are very pleased to be able to pair these MMA veterans as a
    highlight to what will be a very special semifinal evening," IFL Co-founder
    and Commissioner Kurt Otto said. "These four great athletes represent
    many of the disciplines that make up mixed martial arts, and seeing them
    together on the same card will be a treat for all in attendance."

    Kerr is an MMA legend who will be making his first appearance in the
    ring since 2004. The former NCAA wrestling champion and NCAA
    All-American (at Syracuse University) and UFC and PRIDE heavyweight champion has
    been training recently with Rutten in Los Angeles as part of his
    comeback. His opponent, MMA veteran Whitehead, was also a three time
    all-America wrestler at North Idaho Junior College, Southern Oregon University,
    and the University of Missouri has posted an 8-1 record in his last
    nine MMA bouts. Brazilians Gracie and Goes have both made successful IFL
    debuts on the team level, with Gracie defeating Wes Sims in an IFL
    Superfight in June and Goes defeating Devin Cole in September as part of the
    Tiger Sharks.

    About the IFL
    Founded in 2005 by Kurt Otto, a real estate investor and a life-long
    martial arts participant and Gareb Shamus, chairman of Wizard
    Entertainment Group, the International Fight League(TM) (IFL) was created to
    establish a centralized and structured organization that brings the power
    and influence of the mixed martial arts industry together. On August 25,
    2006, IFL entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with Paligent,
    Inc. (PGNT:OTCBB), pursuant to which IFL would emerge as the surviving
    entity. For further information regarding the merger, contact Paligent
    at (212) 755-5461.For more information on the IFL, go to www.IFL.tv.

    I liked Kerr's fighting when his game was on. After watching the show the smashing machine, I understand why sometimes Kerr fought great and other times he did not. I hope Kerr is on top of his game, then he can be a top contender in MMA Fighting. :cool:
