About the IFS

One fighter throws a punch while the other fighter blocks it during an IFS bout.

The Story Behind The Fights

2010. Knott’s Berry Farm Resort Hotel in Buena Park, California. Promoter Shawn Shilati knew he was on to something special when the fire marshal turned away more than 300 fight fans due to a packed house for International Fight Showdown 5.

Now in its 11th season, the popularity of the IFS continues to rise. To accommodate its fast-growing fan base, IFS fights are currently held at the prestigious M3 Live Anaheim Event Center.
