The Super Fight League is an India-based MMA promotion that runs three events a week, with a team format, similar to the now defunct International Fight League.
This past Friday’s (2/17/17) event saw a pair of undefeated female competitors in Asha Roka and Hannah Kampf compete, both entered the fight with a record of 2-0-0.
The fight between the two ended in under a minute after Roka put Kampf to sleep with a guillotine choke.
However, Kampf went unconscious almost immediately after the guillotine choke was applied by Roka, but Roka held unto the choke for 22 seconds after Kampf went out because the referee never stopped the fight, even after Kampf’s corner threw the towel in to end it
The commentary team for the event were even shouting on their headsets that Kampf was out from the choke. Kampf was seen convulsing while in the choke and convulsing once the choke was released.
Here is a video of the incident:

Kampf would turn out to be fine later on, as she was seen walking out of the cage after being attended to by the medical staff on hand.
