Back in action with their third consecutive Friday night fight series, the Indian MMA promotion returned out of Mumbai with Super Fight League 6. They started the series two weeks ago with SFL 4 and currently plan to run at least two more events.
In yesterday's headlining bout, two of SFL's best Middleweights met in the cage. After 15 minutes of fighting, Claudio Henrique da Silva took a unanimous decision over Xavier Foupa-Pokam. The victory extends da Silva's streak to 9 wins with his sole career loss coming in his very first professional contest. Xavier has now lost 9 of his last 11 fights. Some of you may remember his two fight UFC run where he gave up back-to-back losses to Denis Kang and Drew McFedries at UFC 97 and UFC 98 respectively. I'd call this a set back for him, but what did he really have to be set back from?
