Pettis Looking To Be Face Of The PFL
“Showtime” notably added there was interest from the likes of Bellator and ONE Championship for his services as well.
However, Pettis eventually opted for something new in the PFL where he believes he will be the face of the promotion as he looks to make it even more mainstream.
“Today is one of the best days in my life,” Pettis said. “Signing a new deal, thinking about the future with no animosity or regrets for the past, but a brand new start in a new organisation. I’m gonna be kinda the face of this thing, I like to think that I’m one of the biggest names signed with the PFL.
“I get to carry that flag. I ended in WEC with the showtime kick, I jumped into UFC, carried that WEC flag, now the PFL is kinda counting on me to make this thing go more mainstream and bigger than it already is.
“They have some great deals with ESPN, Rory MacDonald is over there, Fabricio Werdum just signed, they’ve got some talent coming over but I feel I’m gonna carry that flag and bring this organisation to a whole new level.”
It’s certainly exciting times for the PFL who will look to have a strong 2021 after seeing its entire 2020 season canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
