THE IRON RINGTM       

Zilo Networks subsidiary Zilo Live, Inc. - in association with The Warrington Hudlin Organization - is currently producing The Iron Ring, a new reality series that will air on Viacom's BET later this spring. The shows follow A-List hip-hop celebrities in New York and Los Angeles as they put together professional mixed martial arts fight teams that will then compete in a round robin fight tournament.

The Iron Ring draws on the experience of Zilo Co-Founders and Executive Producers David Isaacs and Campbell McLaren, two of the creators of the pay-per-view phenomenon The Ultimate Fighting Championships®. Executive Producer Warrington Hudlin, best known as the producer of the popular feature films House Party and Boomerang, and more recently for his Webby Award-winning work on the Internet, is also a high-ranking martial arts practitioner.

If you are interested in being a competitor on the Iron Ring, click here to download the Iron Ring fighter application or click here to email or call us at 212.997.0505 x316. Otherwise, please check this page regularly for updates.

I sent him a message.  Heh. We could train together, HEF FOI represent.  (sigh)  Raz maybe, I'd need to loose at least 100 lbs, thanks for the confidence though...

So, would you fight under the name 'Sam Wilson', or just 'Falcon'? Or just 'Sammy Pimpslap'?

You guys still looking for fighters? A friend of mine has a good looking son that I hear is really good at all that "cage fighting" stuff.
