Get in Here for the Super Fight League 5 Live Stream Starting at 11:30 a.m. EST


(SFL ring girls are the best ring girls.) 

Although it may not feature one of the enticing headliners that you’re used to, Super Fight League has shown in recent events that they can still deliver exciting matches and all the brutal knockouts you could ever ask for. So if you’re bored, playing hooky from work, or simply feel like killing some time at the office, why not check out some free fights? Super Fight League will be streaming their fifth event live from their Youtube channel starting in just a few short minutes, and luckily for you, your favorite MMA website will be doing the same. Featuring a slew of castmembers from SFL’s TUF counterpart – which you may or may not recall was a thing – this seven fight card will at the very minimum pull off something that Strikeforce hasn’t achieved in months: Holding an actual event. So there’s that.

Head after the jump to get in on the action, which goes down at 11:30 a.m. EST from the SFL arena in Mumbai.

By the Way, A Super Fight League Reality Show Totally Started Filming Yesterday


(Really, you guys? We all agreed to throw our fingers in the air once that beat dropped and now I look like an asshole up here.) 

Sticking to their brief but noticeable pattern of hopping onto novelty trends long after the well has run dry (see Bob Sapp, Bobby Lashley), it appears that the brains behind India-based promotion Super Fight League began filming a TUF-style reality show yesterday. Co-owner Raj Kundra broke the news via his Twitter as things got underway:

Yes we have announced The Super Fighter (Ed note: Nice, Raj. REEEEAAALLL original.) MMA reality show. Auditions are now on pan India.

In addition, Kundra discussed some of the intricacies of the show’s format with the Hindustan Times:

The show will go for 50 days and each week people will vote for who they want to see fight on a Friday night. The fighters will also be given tasks each week.

Given the abysmal numbers this season of The Ultimate Fighter Amurica pulled in, along with the fact that SFL are, you know, hemorrhaging money and all, you’d probably think that this was a boneheaded move on their part. To which we’d partially agree with you.

On the other hand, part of the reason SFL is seeing such paltry attendance numbers is due to the lack of MMA awareness that currently exists in India. Some of the bigger named celebrities who attended SFL’s first event even admitted afterward that they were under the belief that MMA was something along the lines of the WWE, and were abhorred to learn otherwise. A MMA based reality show, however, could easily help stir up some newfound interest in the sport as the first season of The Ultimate Fighter did here in the good old U.S of A.
