Upstart Super Fight League Signs Todd Duffee, Trevor Prangley

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

India's Super Fight League, the first mixed martial arts organization in the country, on Monday morning announced a trio of signings as the company prepares for its debut event.

Among those inked to four-fight deals are a pair of former UFC fighters, hulking heavyweight Todd Duffee and veteran light-heavyweight Trevor Prangley.

Duffee is perhaps best known for his short and rocky tenure with the UFC, in which he was a part of two memorable knockouts. He debuted at UFC 102 with a flourish, knocking out Tim Hague in just seven seconds, one of the fastest KO's in promotional history. At his next bout, he fought Mike Russow and seemed to be cruising his way to victory after battering Russow through the first two rounds, only to be spectacularly KO'd in the third.

Most recently, he fought Alistair Overeem at Dynamite!! 2010 and suffered a first-round knockout loss. When Duffee (6-2) debuts, it will be his first fight in over one year.

Prangley (23-9-1) has been far more active, fighting Bellator champion Hector Lombard in a 195-pound catch weight fight in November. Prangley lost via second-round TKO. During his lengthy career, the 39-year-old UFC and Strikeforce vet holds notable wins over Keith Jardine, Chael Sonnen and Travis Lutter.

SFL also signed 26-year-old Baga Agaev, a 26-year-old Russian who has won seven of his last eight fights.

Debut fights were not announced for any of the new signees.

SFL holds its inaugural event on March 11 from the Andheri Sports Complex in Mumbai. That card will be headlined by Bob Sapp vs. James Thompson.
