Todd Duffee UFC 114
India’s Super Fight League has announced the signings of several former UFC and Strikeforce fighters including Todd Duffee, Paul Kelly and Trevor Prangley.

The promotion will hold their first show on March 11 from India with the main event featuring former Elite XC fighter James Thompson against Bob Sapp.

The new signings announced on Monday include heavyweight Todd Duffee, who holds one of the fastest knockouts in UFC history with his win over Tim Hague. Duffee has been out of action dealing with injuries since his loss to current UFC contender Alistair Overeem at the close of 2010, and missed fighting at all in 2011.

Now he’ll return to action as a part of the Super Fight League in 2012.

Also announced on Monday were new fight deals with former Strikeforce competitor Trevor Prangley, former UFC lightweight Paul Kelly, middleweight fighter Xavier ‘Professor X’ Foupa-Pokam, Lena Ovchynnikova and Baga Agaev.

All of the new fighters signed four fight deals with the promotion with bouts expected to take place starting in 2012.
