Taking his love for martial arts a step ahead, actor Tiger Shroff has joined the Super Fight League (SFL).

The 26-year-old actor, who is known for his death defying fight sequences in the films, is the new co-owner of Bengaluru Tigers.

"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," Tiger said in a statement.

The mixed martial league which began on January 20, already has Bollywood celebrities like Ajay Devgn, Arjun Rampal, Salim & Sulaiman and Randeep Hooda co-owning Mumbai Maniacs, Delhi Heroes, UP Nawabs and Haryana Sultans teams, respectively.

"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," Bill Dosanjh, SFL's CEO & Principal Founder said.

The SFL will be held at Siri Fort Sports Complex here.
