In Invicta FC’s ongoing quest to compile the deepest roster of female talent in MMA, the organization has come to terms with Indian promotion Super Fight League to form a “strategic alliance” between the organizations. Invicta FC already has similar agreements in place with JEWELS and Strikeforce.
Though it’s unknown when the deal will officially kick in, the two involves parties expressed genuine enthusiasm about the potential of working with each other in hopes of helping women’s MMA continue to grow.
“We are excited about this opportunity to work with Super Fight League and tap into a new market that has yet to really be explored by the women’s MMA world,” explained said Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp in a press release announcing the partnership. “Super Fight League has done a great job of pioneering the sport of MMA in India and has helped demonstrate that there is fight talent everywhere on the planet. Even though women’s MMA has made tremendous strides over the last few years as far as adding depth to its ranks, we have really just scratched the surface of what is out there. This relationship between Invicta FC and Super Fight League is an opportunity to expand our reach and discover exciting, new talent.”
“Super Fight League is thrilled to form a cooperative relationship with an MMA promotion in The United States,” added SFL Chairman Raj Kundra. “Invicta FC has done some incredible things for women’s MMA in such a short time and I am confident that working with their great organization is a step that will help further the MMA movement in India that we initiated this year with our live event series.”
Invicta FC’s next show is set for October 6. The following weekend SFL will put on the first in a series of weekly shows in India involving a specially built arena and “invitation only” audience.
