Garcia was with the WWE on and off for about 15 years, primarily ring announcing, but also occasionally participating in angles with wrestlers and also writing and performing theme songs.

“The built-up energy and anticipation in that moment when fighters enter the cage for combat is unmatched, and we needed a talent who could rise to the occasion,” executive producer George Greenberg said in a press release. “We are thrilled to welcome Lilian Garcia to the PFL family, her legendary voice will introduce our roster of top fighters from around the world and set the stage for thrilling, action-packed, Thursday Night fights.”

“I’m looking forward to stepping in the cage and getting back to introducing fighters to the masses, something I truly love and have missed,” Garcia added. “What I find most intriguing about the PFL is that every fight matters. Each fighter enters the cage knowing they are competing for a shot at a title and million-dollar prize. There is so much drama surrounding that moment, and I’m honored to help bring it to life for fans in the arena and watching at home.”

Garcia will start on May 9, the beginning of the PFL’s second season.
