As with its previous 4 events, SFL 8 will carry a total of 7 bouts on its fight card, and will be a part of the recently launched ‘Friday Night Fight Nights’ initiative.
SFL 8 will be headlined by Middleweights John Troyer (13-7) and Vasily Novikov (11-7). Both fighters are set to make their respective promotional debuts.
Troyer may be a familiar face to most MMA fans, having competed 3 times under the Bellator banner. The Louisville, Kentucky native is unbeaten in his last 4 fights, holding wins over the likes of Sean Huffman and Josh Clark in various organizations.
The 27-year-old opened his career with an 8-1 record, before hitting a rough patch in 2008.
His opponent, Vasily Novikov, is riding on a 2-fight win streak and has competed mostly in M1-Global’s events. The 30-year-old Ukrainian is 6-1 in his last 7 professional bouts, and has tasted mixed success in his MMA career thus far.
The co-Main event will see Hardeep Singh (9-2) take on Tom McKenna (0-0) in a Bantamweight match-up. While McKenna is set to make his official MMA debut, his opponent has already amassed 9 victories in his MMA career. Singh was last seen at Legend Fighting Championship’s 3rd event, where he was submitted by Yohan Mulia Legowo in the first round.
