SFL 12 is set to take place in Mumbai, India as part of the Super Fight League’s ‘Friday Night Fight Nights’ initiative. Set for December 7th, the event is set to be streamed ‘LIVE’ here on MMASucka.com, beginning 7:30am PST/10:30am EST. Although the fight card is subjected to changes, 7 bouts have already been booked and slotted for the event.
SFL 12 will be headlined by ‘SFL Challengers’ winner Isaac Kairo, and promotional newcomer Mahmoud Ashour (0-1). Kairo (0-0) is well known amongst the SFL ranks, having won the promotion’s reality MMA series a few months ago. He will be making his professional MMA debut on December 7th. Ashour, in the meantime, has only fought once in his MMA career. The Egyptian faced Ahmed Reda in his MMA debut at Egyptian Fighting Championship 8, but succumbed to a Guillotine Choke submission early in the 3rd stanza. Ashour will undoubtedly be entering enemy territory, and it remains to be seen if the Egyptian will be able to pull off his first career win.
The Co-Main event pits promotional debutants Karla Benitez (6-3) and Julia Berezikova (6-3). Interestingly, both fighters have crossed paths before, and it was Berezikova who did just enough in the judges’ eyes to get the Split-Decision victory. The Russian is on a tear with a 5-fight win streak in her pocket, following back-to-back defeats against the likes of Julie Kedzie and Rosi Sexton. Benitez, on the other hand, may be remembered for her exuberant entrance at ‘DREAM – Fight for Japan’, although the outcome of the scheduled match-up ended on a more disappointing note. Benitez opened her MMA career with a 6-0-0(1) record, before hitting trouble in paradise with a 3-fight losing skid. The Spaniard, however, managed to end that winless streak, when she defeated Emma Watson this past October.
With that said, here’s the fight card for SFL 12:
- Isaac Kairo vs. Mahmoud Ashour
- Karla Benitez vs. Julia Berezikova
- Mohammed Shahid vs. Jamshed Khan
- Abhijeet Petkar vs. Mohit Tokas
- Uchit Sharma vs. Yashvir Singh
- Pawan Maan Singh vs. Ravindra Balhara
- Sharath Babu vs. Varinder Singh
