What exactly is IGF?

So this japanese fed is kinda mysterious...I can't really find anything that describes to me exactly what it is. So from what I have kinda seen from random clips, it seems to be a staged mma/wrestling fusion? Is that it? Any help on the subject would be appreciated. Thanks rasslin friends

Re: What exactly is IGF?

it's run by Antonio Inoki, it's Inoke Genome Federation, it does use a lot of MMA influences and books a lot of MMA fighters. It's where Angle vs Lesnar in 07 happened.

Re: What exactly is IGF?

IGF is Inoki's bizarre idea of what pro-wrestling should be. The cards are often combined with legit MMA and Kick-Boxing fights, which is his cover to draw decent numbers.

So some of the bouts are "real" and the others are a mix of mma and wrestling which are staged? That is fucked up
