‘Super Fight League’ premieres with theme song that will stick in your head (Yahoo! Sports)
India jumped into the world of MMA with the start of Super Fight League, a new promotion that debuted in Mumbai over the weekend. James Thompson submitted Bob Sapp at 1:52 because Sapp sustained a leg injury.
The real star of the show was SFL's theme song, which should shoot to the top of the charts immediately. It somehow combines the guitar riffs of an 80s movie montage song with the rapping skill of Snow. Basically, it's amazing.
"Boom, pow, punch kick WOW!" will be playing in your head for the rest of the day. You're welcome.
Thanks, Bloody Elbow.
