SAO PAULO, Brazil (June 22, 2021) – SFT has officially announced dates for its first three events of 2021, featuring four title fights, kicking off Thursday, July 15th with SFT 27.
Each show will be held in Sao Paulo and be streamed live in the United States and worldwide on pay per view via the FITE app and website (www.FITE.tv), starting at 6:00 p.m. ET / 3:00 p.m. PT, for only $14.99.
“We’re very excited to be getting back to live events,” SFT president David Hudson said. “Not just because of the obvious, but it’s a sign that life is getting back to normal again.
