The PFL has booked rap star Wiz Khalifa to perform at the company’s World Championship event on Oct. 27.
Khalifa, who is known for the singles “Roll Up,” “No Sleep,” and “Black and Yellow,” is also a company investor, with an advisory role. The PFL uses his music at his events and throughout its digital content.
“It is an honour to have a global icon, who is so passionate about MMA, in Wiz Khalifa as part of PFL’s ownership group,” PFL CEO, Peter Murray said in a press release. “Wiz is in touch with today’s younger demographic and provides key insight and invaluable collaboration opportunities on a global scale. The PFL World Championship on October 27 will be a special night and we are thrilled to have Wiz take the stage.”
Six title fights will take place with the winner taking home the world title and $1 million. In addition, two-time gold medalist and twice undisputed women’s boxing champion Claressa Shields returns to the cage to take on Abigail Montes at lightweight.
The event is set to air on ESPN and ESPN+ beginning at 4:30 p.m. ET from the Seminole Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
