Season Two Of Super Fight League Kicks Off On February 9 In Mumbai

Super Fight League, the premier mixed martial arts organization in India, is coming off a successful inaugural season and tends to ride the momentum for many years to come.

Bill Dosanjh, business tycoon, alongside Amir Khan, multiple-time boxing world champion, are completely revamping the promotion into a respectable entity and marketable product. Working together, they have elevated mixed martial arts into the second most viewed sport in India, second only to cricket.

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.

An unprecedented scoring system is also utilized to have the fighters compete in a team environment and not for individual championship titles.

In addition to signing an exclusive agreement with MTV India late last year for its sophomore season to be broadcast all over the second-most populous country in the world, Fox Sports Asia has hopped on the bandwagon and inked a one-year multimedia and broadcast deal.

This partnership with Fox will bring Super Fight League into hundreds of millions of homes throughout Asian countries such as China, South Korea, Cambodia, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, and the Philippines just to name a few.

The highly-anticipated second season will take place at MTV SFL Arena, Famous Studios, Mahalaxmi, Mumbai, India from February 9 to March 17.
