As Invicta grows, so does it global outreach.
After earlier this year announcing their relations with JEWELS Japan; Monday the promotion announced they have developed a strategics relationship with the Super Fight League out of India.
The SFL has always had a female division match since their cards started earlier this year. InvictaFC fighter Joanne Calderwood recently got a win with the SFL; as well as American Colleen Schneider.
Currently, the SFL is in the middle of it’s own reality show, where eight female fighters are vying for a contract with the SFL. The relationship will help grow and improve the quality of female MMA in India. It will also give Indian fighters a chance to prove their skills on an international level.
“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,” stated Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp. “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,” Super Fight League Chairman Raj Kundra added. “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 helpfurther the MMA movement in India that we initiated this year with our live event series.”
The talent exchange could happen soon, with the SFL having several cards in the fall. Their fourth card Oct. 12 is featuring a match between Serbian fighter Sanja Sucevic and Spain’s Irene Cabello. Invicta will have their 3rd card Oct. 6. The Indian fighters could debut as early as Invicta 4 in January.
