In the mixed martial arts media world, when people refer to J-Lo they are usually talking about UFC lightweight Joe Lauzon (J-Lau). This time, we are really talking about the original J-Lo, Jennifer Lopez, who has been announced to perform at next month's Super Fight League in India:
Just few days after the news of Jennifer Lopez performing at Super Fight League (SFL) inaugural event made headlines, the news is that SFL is in talks with other artists as well to perform the final act of the Mumbai event. Apart from J'Lo, American band LMFAO too has been in talks with Raj Kundra, the founder of SFL.
A source close to SFL says, "We have been in talks with a lot of event companies managing several big artists. After the J'Lo news broke out there have been many offers by other managers as well saying that they too have artists that can perform at the closing ceremony. LMFAO, the American band was one of the prime names that cropped up during the discussions. A thought behind this is the fact that they want it to start off on a glam note with J'Lo and make sure the energy is at its peak even after the fights are over."

Founded by millionaire sports franchise owner Raj Kundra and the Bollywood start Sanjay Dutt, the promotion's first event, SFL 1, will take place in Mumbai on March 11, 2012. It will feature a main event of James Thompson vs Bob Sapp.
The promotion is striving to define itself as real, and to differentiate itself from professional wrestling. Bob Sapp is thus a puzzling choice for the inagural main event.
The Indain economy is now massive and growing at a far greater pace than it is in the West. Further, while martial arts are popular in India, MMA is now, making possible again the style vs. style match ups that made the sport so intriguing at its birth. The Super Fight League has the potential to eventually make a mark on the entire sport.
