Super Fight League LogoSuper Fight League (SFL) is back with another in its weekly series, Friday Fight Nights. This week SFL 9 is showcasing some of MMA’s up-and-coming talent from India and abroad.

The fight card will pave the way for the upcoming SFL Night of Champions where SFL will hand out seven championship belts. SFL Friday Fight Nights airs live on Neo Prime and streams Live on on www.YouTube.com/SFL and MMAWeekly.com on Friday, Nov. 16, at 10:30 a.m. ET / 7:30 a.m. PT.

SFL 9 follows an exciting night of finishes which made up SFL 8.  Only the main event went the distance on a show where John Troyer climbed his way up the middleweight rankings and Manoj Chuhan gained his second win in a month. Catch up on all the action at the SFL YouTube channel: www.YouTube.com/SFL.

Raj Kundra, Chairman of Super Fight League said, “We are committed to a weekly fight series. An essential part of developing the sport of MMA inside India is giving the young up and coming athletes a real platform to showcase their talents and gain experience.  Much like the UFC did for the sport in America during the early 90's, we are developing our talent and our shows and are proud to be able to put on a consistent and quality show every week.”

SFL 9: Showcasing new MMA talent from India & Abroad

Dan Isaac, COO of SFL said, “The up and coming Indian fighters are very aggressive in the Ozone and exciting to watch. This week watch out for Santosh Kumar [bout # 1] and Satender Bankura [bout # 4]. We audition fighters from Mon – Wed every week at the SFL headquarters. India’s got Talent!”

Headlined by Afghani MMA Champion Baz Muhammad Mobarez taking on stand up striker Egyptian Amr Wahman, SFL 9 delivers seven exciting bouts drawing from a fast growing stable of domestic and International talent. Wahman is fighting again after SFL 4; where he suffered a first round TKO against crowd favourite Kultar Singh Gill. One of Egypt’s most seasoned kickboxers, Wahman is looking for redemption whist the confident Baz Mobarez is set on victory and looking to make his mark on the global stage.

SFL 9 also presents two of India’s most highly regarded Middleweight prospects: debutants Satendar Bankura versus Rajbir Singh. Bhabajeet Chowdhury returns for more action following an unforgettable debut on SFL 4, beating Charanjeet Singh with a spinning back-kick that has been tagged as a contender for knockout of the year. Trying to stop Chowdhury will be Jamshed Khan.

Another fan favorite on the card is Indian flyweight sensation Gurleen Kaur (0-1), a finalist on the SFL Challengers TV show. Kaur is looking to prove she is still one of India’s top fighters by going for her first win since losing in the SFL Challengers final against Manjit Kolekar. Trying to make a name for herself by beating the highly touted Kaur will be debutant Monika, a fighter with a Wushu background.
