    Me to garth. I thought Chris kept jumping out of the ring. I was worried that they wouldnt match up during the playoffs, but thank goodness for the Grand Prix!

    I am a huge fan of the Grand Prix that the IFL is having. I don’t really follow the teams all that much, more just the fights. But it feels right to have a Grand Prix at the end of the year. Can’t wait for it.
