Todd Duffee vs Jeff Monson announced for Super Fight League

UFC veterans Jeff Monson (46-13-1) and Todd Duffee (7-2) will headline the promotion’s Sept. 8 card in Bengaluru, India, Pavia told MMAjunkie.com Radio host George Garcia. Monson, Pavia said, has signed a new four-fight exclusive deal with the promotion.

Ken Pavia said SFL’s Oct. 6 card, in Channai, India, will be headlined by a heavyweight bout between UFC vets Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou (12-10) and Trevor Prangley (25-9-1).

And he said Satoshi Ishii (4-2-1), who along with Monson and Sokoudjou are recent SFL signees, will make his debut against Jimmy Ambriz (16-18-1).

Monson, who turned 41 in January, has gone 3-0 with a draw since his November unanimous decision loss to Fedor Emelianenko. He has been one of the sport’s busiest fighters the last two and a half years, fighting 19 times. “The Snowman” has fights for the UFC, PRIDE, DREAM and Strikeforce on his resume.

Duffee in April snapped a two-fight losing skid when he knocked out Neil Grove in 34 seconds at SFL 2. That was his first fight in 15 months after being cut from the UFC after a knockout loss to Mike Russow at UFC 114 and following that up with a 19-second knockout loss to Alistair Overeem in a DREAM heavyweight title bout.

Sokoudjou has not yet fought in 2012. His 2011 closed out with back-to-back losses, including one to recent UFC signee Ryan Jimmo for the MFC light heavyweight title. Those losses came after a three-fight win streak for “The African Assassin.” Prangley has won two straight after a stretch that saw him win just once in six fights, including an 0-2-1 stretch for Strikeforce. Prangley won his promotional debut at SFL 3 last month, knocking out Baga Agaev in the third round.

Ishii looks to rebound from a first-round knockout loss to Emelianenko this past December. Before that, he had gone 4-0-1 after losing his professional debut. And Ambriz, a WEC and DREAM vet, got back in the win column in March at SFL’s first event with a 14-second TKO victory. That snapped a four-fight skid for the Californian, who started his career 8-0 but since then has gone 8-18-1.
