NEW YORK, November 26, 2007 – The International Fight League (OTC.BB: IFLI), the world’s number one team-based professional mixed martial arts league, and Alfred Haber Distribution (AHDI) today announced that ITV4 has begun carrying IFL programming on Saturday nights. It is the IFL’s second European broadcast partner, joining TV4 in Sweden.

“The United Kingdom is a growing market for the sport of Mixed Martial Arts, and we think that our programming, which is different from the cage fighting that has been the norm, will have a much greater mainstream appeal,” said IFL CEO Jay Larkin. “We are very pleased to be able to join the ITV lineup.”

ITV joins an ever-growing international TV lineup for IFL programming, which includes MyNetworkTV and FSN in the United States, MBC in the Middle East, Star TV in Asia, CanWest Global and Fox Sports Canada in Canada, EGO in Israel and Armed Forces Television worldwide.
