The International Fight League (IFL) announced today that it will move its June 16 regular season event from Reno, Nev., to Las Vegas. The event will be held at the Las Vegas Hilton, marking the first time an MMA event will be held at the hotel. Tickets for the event, which range in price from $50 to $200, will go on sale April 28 through the Las Vegas Hilton Box office and Ticketmaster.
"We were presented an opportunity for this breakthrough event in Las Vegas, and we felt it is an opportunity we could not pass up," said IFL CEO and co-founder Gareb Shamus. "Our steady progress throughout our first year of existence (the first IFL event was only held April 29, 2006) has resulted in some great opportunities that we could not have predicted, and this move to work with the Las Vegas Hilton for this event is the latest one. It is a very exciting day for us, our athletes and for all the MMA fans in Nevada."
