Courtesy of the International Fight League:

NEW YORK, February 26, 2008 – The International Fight League (OTC.BB: IFLI) and leading social media network imeem today announced a video sharing partnership that will give imeem’s growing global community of 23 million users the opportunity to view and interact with media from IFL’s action-packed fighting league at www.ifl.imeem.com.

“One of the greatest success stories has been the exposure of our athletes, coaches and events in the digital space, and this partnership with imeem will further that growth,” said IFL CEO Jay Larkin. “Compelling content is key to success, and this partnership gives us added opportunity to continue to expose our brand to as large an audience as possible with compelling content we know this demo loves to view.”

The partnership will create an IFL TV channel on imeem where fans can find engaging and fresh media content from the professional mixed martial arts sports league, ranging from match highlights to athlete and coach interviews and instructional segments. The imeem community can also express themselves with their favorite IFL content by creating and sharing custom video playlists with friends on imeem and through embeddable widgets on third party sites across the Web.
