Canadian Gangster Joins PFL

Canadian Gangster Joins PFL


March 23, 2020 PFL

Olivier Aubin-Mercier’s stay with the UFC lasted more than five years, but after signing with PFL as a free agent, the Canadian is excited to experience something new.

 

PFL is on the other end of the spectrum from how UFC operates. From its format of a point-based season leading into playoffs and ultimately a championship, to the lofty $1 million payout for the winner in each weight class, Aubin-Mercier (11-5) said he’s thrilled to join the promotion’s 2020 lightweight season.

 

“I was pretty excited (to sign with PFL),” Aubin-Mercier told MMA Junkie. “I like the concept of PFL, and I think it’s pretty cool. It may be the future in the sense that it could be a big promotion to be a competition against the UFC. It’s two different concepts. People are going to be really interested in it because you have to follow your athlete through the season. It’s a really nice concept – a little bit like hockey here in Canada.”
