The Professional Fighters League (PFL) plans to make a big moves into the Middle East in 2021.
In a move that will cement the UFC and Bellator competitor’s position in the region, PFL’s mission is to find the next GCC MMA star.
For those that are unfamiliar, PFL is a Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) brand. As the name suggests, it has a league format where male and female fighters rise and fall in the rankings.
This is then followed by a playoff season and then a grand finale with a cool $1m cheque up for grabs.
The fast-growing promotion already has stars such as ex-UFC and Bellator fighter, Rory MacDonald (pictured) and US Olympic boxing champ, Kayla Harrison on its roster.
