IFL CEO Jay Larkin Weighs In on EliteXC Show

IFL CEO Jay Larkin released a statement earlier today about EliteXC: “Primetime” on CBS:

Saturday’s ratings success of ProElite’s show on CBS again shows that the market for the sport in the mainstream is growing, and we at the the International Fight League are very excited to be one of the industry leaders that can help grow the sport of Mixed Martial Arts collectively. We look forward to continuing our work both independently with our great roster of young, marketable athletes, and with other promotions, to help make exciting fights and encourage further growth of the sport to a larger audience.

Paired with the recent reports about a possible Roy Nelson and Kimbo Slice fight taking place in the future, maybe co-promotion is just the route the IFL needs to take to change reportedly tanking finances.
