Jeff Monson and Todd Duffee to Headline MMA Card for SFL in India

Nick Caron@@nicholascaronAnalyst IJune 30, 2012

Former UFC heavyweights Jeff Monson and Todd Duffee have signed to headline the Sept. 8 card for the Super Fight League, according to MMAjunkie.com Radio. 

The fight card, which will take place in Bengalaru, India, will feature the former UFC heavyweights in what could be the biggest fight in the promotion's short history. 

Ken Pavia, the promotion's CEO, announced the news, adding that Monson had signed a new four-fight deal with the India-based MMA organization. 

Monson has won three straight bouts since his unanimous-decision loss to Fedor Emelianenko in November.

At 41 years old and with the clock ticking down on his career, Monson has been one of the most active fighters in the sport recently, fighting an astonishing 19 times in just the past two and a half years.

He recently reached the 60-bout total (46-13-1) for his career and will apparently continue to grow that number with his new contract.

Though he made his debut for the UFC in 2009, Todd Duffee is still just 26 years old and has plenty of time to grow as a fighter.

His 7-2 record is highlighted by one of the fastest knockouts in UFC history in his debut for the organization in August 2009, when he knocked out Tim Hague in just seven seconds.

Duffee recently got back in the win column after a two-fight losing streak to current UFC heavyweights Mike Russow and Alistair Overeem when he knocked out Neil Grove at SFL 2 in April. 

Also announced on by the SFL were two other fights which will take place on the SFL's Oct. 6 card in Channai, India. On that card, Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou will battle Trevor Prangley, and Satoshi Ishii will fight Jimmy Ambriz.
