Rory MacDonald is taking his talents to the Professional Fighters League.
The former UFC title contender and Bellator welterweight champion has signed an exclusive multi-fight deal with the PFL, MacDonald and PFL officials told ESPN. He will be a part of the promotion's 2020 season and will compete for the PFL's welterweight title and $1 million grand prize, which is awarded to the fighter who wins the season in each weight class.
"I'm excited to join the PFL where every year the world championship and $1 million belt is there for the best fighter, without any games or politics," MacDonald told ESPN. "I believe in the PFL sport-season format and fighters-first organization."
MacDonald will be a guest on Wednesday's episode of "Ariel Helwani's MMA Show" to discuss his decision to sign with PFL.
