As I exclusively reported here, Intimidation Cage Fighting signed a deal with US Bank Arena to host events there during 2009.
Even though I broke this news through FightTicker, I wanted to go ahead and post the official press release I received from US Bank Arena.
Check after the jump for the full press release. Also, the picture you see with this post is the new ICF logo - I think it's pretty good.
