PFL unveils 10 new contender signings for Season 3
Ten new contenders await Season 3 of the PFL.
“I’m proud to welcome this diverse and talented group of top-ranked and highly sought-after fighters to the Professional Fighters League,” PFL CEO Peter Murray said in a press release. “Half of the 2020 season roster will be elevated with next-level new talent, and the other half, comprised of the best fighters from last season.”
“The PFL’s fighters must earn their way through the toughest test in MMA, fighting five times over the course of the regular season, playoffs, and championship for a shot at the six $1-million dollar belts,” Murray added. “I’m excited for our global fanbase to watch our new fighters mix it up this season starting May 21 on ESPN2 and ESPN+.”
The company confirmed the signings today in a press release, which feature eight men and two women, many of which have UFC and Bellator experience. Let’s take a look at them in closer detail:
Of particular note is Mohammed Usman, who is the younger brother of UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. Former ranked UFC welterweight Olivier Aubin-Mercier will look to make a splash in the PFL’s welterweight division.
