View Full Version : India's SFL Announces YouTube Deal, Thompson-Sapp Main Event

13-02-2012, 20:31
The upstart India-based Super Fight League promotion announced Monday an exclusive online three-year deal with YouTube, kicking off with its inaugural event on March 11 in Mumbai headlined by a super heavyweight bout between James Thompson and Bob Sapp.

SFL, which is calling itself India's first professionally organized MMA league, said it will share revenues from sponsorships and advertising on its YouTube channel with Google.

The promotion was founded late 2011 by IPL cricket investor Raj Kundra and Bollywood acting star Sanjay Dutt. Controversial former MMA agent Ken Pavia has been tapped as CEO.

The decision to pit Thompson and Sapp in the main event will surely attract negative attention. Sapp, who lost over the weekend to Rolles Gracie, has lost eight of his last 10 MMA fights in the first round. Meanwhile, Thompson has lost 12 of his last 17, though his most recent fight, a no contest, should have been a win for him.

No other bouts have been announced yet.
