It’s wonderful to see brands come forward and have faith in the reach of the sport of MMA in India. India being an action loving country, we all love watching action movies but nothing beats real life action in the cage. The ratings have been very promising and we strive to keep our audiences and sponsors happy whilst building SFL into a world class MMA league.”
