Main Card:

Bobby Lashley V James Thompson (HW)
Former WWE Champion Bobby ‘The Dominator’ Lashley takes on battle tested British Heavyweight James ‘The Colossus’ Thompson in a headline battle of the Heavyweights. Lashley is not underestimating his opponent, having trained for a stand up battle or a wrestling gala whist Thompson, fresh off a win over Bob Sapp at SFL 1, is predicting a three round war.

Trevor Prangley V Baga Agaev (LH)
27 year old Russian submission specialist Baga Agaev has vowed to win in ‘spectacular fashion’ as he takes on Trevor Prangley in what promises to be a technical battle between these two seasoned fighters. Having held the belts for Strikeforce, MFC, Shark Fights, and Bodog, two time All American College Wrestler and South African National Champion Prangley can not afford to underestimate the dangerous Russian prospect who boasts a 3-1 record against UFC vets.

Doug Marshall V Zelg Galesic (MW)
Former WEC Light Heavyweight champion Doug Marshall faces DREAM vet and former Cage Rage Middleweight champion, explosive Croatian striker Zelg Galesic. In a match up with fight of the night chemistry, both these hard hitters will be looking for the KO.

Lena Ovchynnikova V Joanne Calderwood (125 lb)
World class Muay Thai fighter and current IKF European Flyweight Kickboxing Champion Joanne Calderwood takes on 24 year old Ukrainian Lena Ovchynnikova who is focused on regaining her winning streak following a loss at SFL 1. With previous SFL women’s bouts being fight of the night contenders, expect this one to be no different.

SFL founder Raj Kundra said: ‘SFL 3 stands to be the best so far. We’re hosting SFL 3 in one of India’s best indoor stadiums – the IGI in New Delhi with a 10,000 capacity. We have a fantastic main event with SFL 1 champion James Thomson Vs Bob Lashley so tune in to see the action!’
