Full press release below:
Mumbai, India, November 8th 2012 - Super Fight League (SFL) returns for another series of 'Friday Fight Nights', featuring two top middleweight contenders on a winning streak; John Troyer (13-7-1 U.S.A) versus Vasily Novikov (11-7-0 Ukraine.) 'Friday Fight Nights' airs live on Neo Prime in India and streams live on www.YouTube.com/SFL November 9th, 2012.
Troyer is coming off a three fight win streak that has seen him stop his last two opponents via rear-naked choke. Novikov is fresh from a unanimous decision win in April of this year. With Novikov's fights having only gone the distance twice in an 18 bout career, both of these fighters are looking for a quick finish to make their mark on the global stage.
SFL 8 follows an exciting night of finishes which made up SFL 7. Only one match went the distance in a card which saw rising UK welterweight star Michael 'Venom' Page destroy Egypt's Haitham Tantawy.

Dan Isaac, COO of SFL said, 'What more could our army of SFL fans ask for - Kultar Singh Gill "Black Mamba", Lak "Lightening" Sekhon, Hardeep "Hardcore" Singh, all fighting for SFL, this is truly a global gathering of the best Indian warriors.'
SFL 8 features Indian-Canadian bantamweight power puncher Hardeep Singh (9-2) square off against American Tom McKenna (5-2). Another of India's most promising female fighters Deepika takes on New Zealand's Tracy Lockwood in a bout of debutants. The full fight card for SFL 8 is listed below.
Raj Kundra, Chairman of Super Fight League said, 'What I found most exciting about SFL 7 was the live audience, we are actually experiencing not just the evolution of Indian Mixed Martial artists but also the evolution of the Indian sports fan. Finally - we have a fight culture in the making and 'fight fans' cheering on their champions and enjoying the fights. This is truly remarkable.'
