“We’re thrilled to announce our international partnership with Live Nation as the world’s top music and entertainment promoter makes its move into the world’s fastest growing sport,” PFL chief executive officer Peter Murray said. “MMA fans in the United Kingdom will experience PFL’s star fighters battle it out for a shot at the PFL World Championship and the $6 million dollar prize money.”

The pathway to the 2022 PFL World Championships and $1 million purse that comes with it will begin with a field of 24 fighters across six divisions. Each of the three 2022 PFL Playoff events will feature the top-four fighters across two weight divisions battling to earn a spot in the final with no other sports league able to match the thrilling action in this win-and-advance, lose-and-go-home format. 

“We’re delighted to partner with the Professional Fighters League to deliver their first U.K. events this Summer,” Live Nation U.K.’s Sport & Family Entertainment vice president Sean Ryman said. “The PFL is a global brand in combat sports with an elite roster of athletes, the U.K. is excited and ready for this and it’s long overdue.”
