After a successful debut edition, the premier mixed martial arts organization, Super Fight League is gearing up for its second edition to be hosted at MTV SFL Arena, Famous Studios from 9th February, 2018 to 17th March, 2018.
Promoted by British business tycoon Bill Dosanjh and professional boxer Amir Khan, the league has elevated mixed martial arts into the second most viewed sport in India, second only to cricket. It’s interesting to note how this league is cultivating a new wave of MMA fighters for the four billion dollar industry.
Bill Dosanjh states, “I am thankful to all the stakeholders for believing in our vision and joining hands in delivering something which will soon be a symbol of aspiration for the youth across the globe.”
The first-ever franchise format sports league, which is put together under the watchful eye of the All-India Mixed Martial Arts Association (AIMMAA), consists of 8 franchise teams with celebrity backers housing a total of 96 fighters.
The teams are broken down into Group A and B with twelve qualifying events over 4 weeks. Then, the semi-finals and finals will be held on the 5th and 6th weeks with a total prize pool of INR 4 crores throughout the season.
The highly-anticipated second season will take place at MTV SFL Arena, Famous Studios, Mahalaxmi, Mumbai, India from 9th February to 17th March, 2018.
