Tiger Shroff, star of A Flying Jatt, has always shown immense passion for Mixed Martial Arts and now he has taken his strong interest a step further!

The 26 year old actor is now, aptly, the co-owner of the Bengaluru Tigers, a team in the Super Fight League (SFL) which began on January 20th.

Tiger said:

“So excited to be associated with Super Fight League and the Bengaluru Tigers. As a martial artist myself I share the same passion as these fighters and will do my best to help make a difference in the SFL world. Go Tigers.”

He is not the first celebrity to take a financial interest in MMA teams. Ajay Devgn, Arjun Rampal, Salim & Sulaiman and Randeep Hooda co-owning Mumbai Maniacs, Delhi Heroes, UP Nawabs and Haryana Sultans teams, respectively.

Bill Dosanjh, the SFL’s Principle and founder and CEO had this to say:

“It is with great pride that I welcome Tiger to the Super Fight League. I have always believed Indian MMA needs an innovative and experimental format to bring the fans to the stadiums and in front of television.”
