Quad City Silverbacks

The Quad Cities Silverbacks are an International Fight League team based in the Quad Cities region of the United States. Coached by former UFC Middleweight and Lightweight Champion and founder of the very successful Miletich Fighting Systems camp, Pat Miletich, the Silverbacks were one of four teams competing in the IFL's inaugural season.
