Launching new cash-rich sporting leagues seems to be the trend. Joining the bandwagon are entrepreneur Raj Kundra and actor Sanjay Dutt, although they enter a completely virgin market.
The two have launched a mixed martial arts (MMA) tournament, Super Fight League (SFL), on Monday. MMA is a contact sport, which allows a fighter to use both grappling and striking techniques. It includes several forms of martial arts such as boxing, wrestling, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, muay Thai, kickboxing, taekwondo, karate and judo.
The first season kicks off in March 11 at the Andheri Sports Complex here. The second round will be held in Chandigarh on April 7 and the final round will be conducted in New Delhi on May 6.
