2013 in SFL numbered events
2013 is the second year for Super Fight League, an Indian based mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion. Whilst the SFL began holding events from February 22 with their first SFL Contenders event, which are untelevised events that take place in the SFL Training Centre as a way to build up the fighters before bringing forward to a television audience, the promotion made their televised return with SFL 14 on March 29, which was headlined by two title fights between Xavier Foupa-Pokam and John Troyer for the middleweight title, and Sanja Sucevic and Colleen Schneider for the women's flyweight title. The same event was also their first on ESPN Star Sports in India.
The SFL will be undergoing another change from August. It will go from hosting fortnightly events, to returning to a weekly format comprising four fights a night as appose to their usual seven. The promotion will also be shifting venue. A new arena is being constructed at the Filmalaya Stuidos in Andheri that will have a capacity of 800 people as compared to the 250-seater set-up. "Changing the format of the show has been a collective decision of our telecast partner and myself. Making the format regular but shorter gives a stronger connect," said Raj Kundra, founder of the SFL.
