A new competition
PFL Europe is basically a European league which will feature decorated MMA fighters from across the continent. It will be a completely different competition from the one that PFL runs every year. In the European league, fighters will compete to qualify for a spot in the promotion’s main roster.
The league will make its debut next year and all events will be staged live in different European countries. In the 2022 PFL Playoff qualifier events, winners will receive PFL Europe contracts.
MMA fans around Europe will be treated with prime time coverage of the fights on Channel 4 in the UK after PFL inked a deal with the network in February.
Among the most notable European prospects participating in the upcoming playoff qualifier events are British Muay Thai champion Dakota Ditcheva, Irish fighter Will Fluery and Scotland’s Louie Sutherland.
