The SFL news comes on the heels of their big announcement that they will be holding weekly live events with Friday Night Fight Nights. These events, which begin on October 12th, will feature two women’s MMA bouts on each fight card.
SFL Raj Kundra stated on the release, “Invicta FC has done some incredible things for women’s MMA in such a short time and I am confident that working with their great organization is a step that will help further the MMA movement in India that we initiated this year with our live event series”.
Invicta, the premier women’s MMA organization has held two action packed cards this year. They are scheduled to hold their third event on October 6th which is highlighted by an atomweight (105-pound) championship bout matching Jessica Penne against Naho Sugiyama.
Invicta Presient Shannon Knapp added, “We are excited about this opportunity to work with Super Fight League and tap into a new market that has yet to really be explored by the women’s MMA world. Super Fight League has done a great job of pioneering the sport of MMA in India and has helped demonstrate that there is fight talent everywhere on the planet. Even though women’s MMA has made tremendous strides over the last few years as far as adding depth to its ranks, we have really just scratched the surface of what is out there. This relationship between Invicta FC and Super Fight League is an opportunity to expand our reach and discover exciting, new talent.”
