The PFL has announced a series of new, one-night tournaments around the globe, that will ultimately feed five new athletes into its 2020 regular season roster.
The promotion has partnered with five separate organizations in United Arab Emirates, Russia, Germany, Brazil and Australia. Each international promotion will host a four-man tournament in either February or March, with the winner earning a spot in the 2020 PFL season.
The PFL has finalized the date of March 20 with UAE Warriors in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The other four dates are still to be determined, as are broadcast details in the U.S.
"We're excited to accelerate growth outside of the United States through the International Qualifier Series, a global fight twice in one-night tournament designed to identify and recruit the best MMA fighters from five priority markets around the world," stated PFL CEO Peter Murray. "We look forward to working with UAE Warriors in the Middle East, a region with an affinity for combat sports and an impressive crop of high-caliber fighters.
"This is a unique challenge, and we'll see if these athletes have what it takes to fight for the PFL and compete for a title and million-dollar prize."
