Indian promotion Super Fight League recently announced the signing of four new talents, as Jeff Monson, Satoshi Ishii, Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou and Michael Page have joined the SFL roster.

Promotion officials stated in a release that all four combatants have signed exclusive four-fight deals, though potential debut dates were not released. The SFL promoted its third event May 6 in New Delhi, and its next outing is scheduled for Sept. 8 in Bengaluru.

A former UFC heavyweight title challenger, 41-year-old Monson owns 60 professional bouts to his credit. “The Snowman” posted victories in three of his four outings so far in 2012, most recently submitting Denis Komkin with a north-south choke last week at M-1 Global “Fedor vs. Rizzo.”

Ishii, a 2008 Olympic judo gold medalist, fell in his MMA debut against 1992 Olympic gold medalist Hidehiko Yoshida on New Year’s Eve 2009. The 25-year-old responded with four straight wins followed by a controversial draw against ex-WEC middleweight champion Paulo Filho before suffering his second career defeat to former Pride heavyweight king Fedor Emelianenko this past December.

Representing Team Quest, 28-year-old Sokoudjou (Pictured) has suffered back-to-back defeats after posting a three-fight winning streak from November 2010 to June 2011. The Cameroonian-born light heavyweight failed in his bid to capture the MFC championship this past October, when he was outpointed by then-champion Ryan Jimmo. The 28-year-old then relinquished his KSW title when he dropped a unanimous decision to Jan Blachowicz in a Nov. 26 rematch at KSW 17.

Just two fights into his pro MMA career, Page stands thus far undefeated. The British kickboxing stylist debuted with a head kick knockout over Ben Dishman in February and followed that victory with a submission of Miguel Bernard on April 7, dispatching both opponents in less than three minutes combined.
