When the International Fighting Championships was created in 1996, there was only one other MMA organization - the UFC. Now it seems that there is an MMA organization on every block and numerous other IFC's. It astounds me that these other organizations have so little respect for themselves that they have to steal our name. One guy even told me that he was the International Fighting Championship (no s). Another who claims to be a martial artist claimed the IFC name for his Miami fighting organization. I'm surprised he didn't rename himself Bruce Lee while he was at it. Fortunately, most of these wannabes disappear on their own, since we don't have the major pockets to go after all of these frauds like the UFC does. Come on guys have a little respect for the guys who actually helped build this great sport of ours - the one and only original International Fighting Championships. Phonies don't last long in the business anyway.
