Mangat, who travels back and fourth from Tristar when in serious training camp mode, battled back after suffering his first career loss to Josh Gow in September 2013 to have an unblemished 2014 dispatching both Blair Oster and Anthony Zender by way of submission. This will not be “Saint Lion’s” first SFL battle as he traveled to India in May 2012 to submit Si Cong Liu at SFL 3.

Lopez, a member of Yakima MMA, will have the home field advantage when he meets Mangat as the fight takes place in Tacoma not far from his home town of Yakima, Washington. Having only 2 full years of pro experience under his belt Lopez has kept his record (4-0) clean with 2 submission and 2 decision wins. Most recently he defeated Arjay Murphy at SFL 37 this past February.

Super Fight League 40 takes place April 25th from the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington. The card can be watched live for free at https://www.youtube.com/user/SFL
