The culmination of the Professional Fighters League’s first season is just around the corner, and the promotion has a new partner to make things interesting.
PFL has teamed up with MMA fantasy site DraftKings ahead of PFL 11, which will be the promotion’s final event of its inaugural season – and will feature $1 million playoff finals in six separate weight classes.
PFL 11 takes place Dec. 31 at Hulu Theatre at Madison Square Garden in New York and airs on NBCSN.
“We’re very excited to be partnering with an industry leader like DraftKings,” PFL CEO Carlos Silva told MMAjunkie in a statement. “We feel that fantasy sports is a growing business that aligns well with what we are doing in reimagining MMA and can’t wait to have our fans participate.
