The Indian mixed martial arts promotion, Super Fight League, continue to add names like to their growing roster of fighters. Their two recent signings, Jeff Monson and Todd Duffee, are scheduled to headline an event they are holding in September.
Jeff Monson, despite being a little long in the tooth, has gone undefeated in his past four fights. After losing a decision to the legendary Fedor Emelianenko back in November 2011, Monson continued competing under the M-1 Global banner and defeated fighters such as, Alexey Oleinik and Denis Komkin.
Jeff Monson has been fighting in mixed martial arts since 1997 and is a true battle-tested veteran of the sport. He is an extremely durable fighter who is a specialist on the ground.
Todd Duffee will always be remembered for his 0:07 second knockout of Tim Hague at UFC 102. However, after losing his next fight in the UFC to Mike Russow, Duffee was handed his walking papers. Since then he has suffered a devastating loss to kickboxing powerhouse, Alistair Overeem, and most recently he scored a TKO victory over Neil Grove. His first victory in three years.
The Super Fight League have also announced the signings of UFC castaways, Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou and Trevor Prangley. The two fighters are expected to meet, and headline, a Super Fight League card on October 6.
Along with “The African Assassin” Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou and Trevor Prangley, the SFL President, Ken Pavia announced the signing of Japanese star, Satoshi Ishii. Ishii was knocked out in his last fight against Fedor Emelianenko and will be looking to bounce back against opponent, Jimmy Ambriz. All three fighters are scheduled to appear on the Super Fight League October 6 card. The event will take place in Channai, India.
