IFL 8 Matt Lindland vs. Carlos Newton Multi-Signed Poster
The International Fight League was an American mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion billed as the world’s first MMA league. It was founded on January 7, 2006 and closed on July 31, 2008. Instead of the established norm for MMA events, where matchups are strictly one-on-one affairs, each IFL card was a showdown between two camps of at least three fighters, each fighter fighting one match against another in the opposing camps.
Presented is a multi-signed 24×36 poster from the IFL 8 event. All of the autographs are from participants in silver paint pen including one of UFC HOFer Pat Miletich. The fighters and match-ups included:
Matt Lindland def Carlos Newton – Sub, 1:43 R2
