Pop Star / American Idol Judge J-Lo Enters Mixed Martial Arts World With Upcoming Performance


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.”
