Here is what 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.”
