SFL 30: Full event video + Results

SFL 30 and SFL 31 of India-based Super Fight League took place in a LIVE show on October 12 in Mumbai, India. But as part of the promotion’s latest initiative, televised dates for the events took place one week after the other, with SFL 30 airing this past Friday on October 18, and SFL 31 airing on October 25.

Friday’s SFL 30 was headlined by Flyweights Irfan Khan (6-1) and Manoj Chauhan (3-2). This was the former’s first bout since his upset defeat against Khwaja Mohibsa at SFL 23. Prior to that setback, Khan was on an immaculate 7-0 run, establishing himself as one of the promotion’s top combatants.

irfan-khan_manoj-chauhanChauhan, a staple of the SFL as well, managed to snap his 2-fight losing skid in his last outing at SFL 22, gaining a decision victory over Uchit Sharma in a three round affair. Khan was a huge step up in competition for Chauhan, who on paper, was clearly the underdog.

The co-main event featured a 145-lbs bout pitting Swapnil Barve (1-2) against Pawan Goyat (2-1). Both fighters were graduates of Super Fight League’s “SFL Challengers” reality MMA series. Barve entered the tilt on the heels of a 1-2 run, garnering his first pro MMA victory in his previous outing. Goyat, meanwhile, started his MMA career at the turn of the calendar year, obtaining three pro fights since then. His previous outing ended in a submission defeat at the hands of Abdul Muneer in May.

The only women’s match-up of the evening highlighted the promotional debut of former ONE FC competitor Jeet Toshi (1-1), as she locked horns with Praveen Kalkal (0-0, 1 NC). Kalkal, a relative newcomer to the MMA scene, made her pro debut back in September. Toshi, on the other hand, was a product of Full Contact Championship, who was last seen in Singapore at ONE FC 3: War of the Lions in her failed bid to defeat Nicole Chua.

Ravindra Balhara (1-0) vs. Mohammad Younus (0-0) completed the 4-bout fight card.

As with previous events, SFL 30 was streamed on YouTube and aired on STAR Sports India & Fight Network in Canada.
