New International Fight League Teams Announced for 2007

The IFL announced today that in 2007, two more teams will be added to the current eight teams in their organization.

Don Frye will lead the Scorpions, based out of Tucson, Arizona, and Marco Ruas will coach the Piranhas, which will call Southern California home.

The IFL was smart to further invest in areas with high interest in mixed martial arts. According to Kurt Otto, the commissioner of the IFL, "The addition of another team training in Southern California and one in an MMA hotbed like Arizona will also help to create a more constant presence for the IFL in two key geographic growth areas."

Next on Don Frye's plate is his upcoming contest against Brazilian jiu-jitsu contemporary legend Roger Gracie, who is set to make his debut against Frye in December of this year.
