NEW YORK (March 1, 2023) - The Professional Fighters League (PFL), the fastest growing and most innovative sports league, today announced a partnership with Just For Men® that will span across the 2023 PFL Regular Season and PFL Challenger Series.
Under the agreement, Just For Men® will become the official beard color brand of the PFL and the men’s color brand will also be the presenting sponsor of one PFL Regular Season event. Additionally, Just For Men® sample products will be available at select PFL events in 2023.
2022 PFL Light Heavyweight World Champion, Robert Wilkinson, and Brazilian MMA star Thiago Santos, will both serve as brand ambassadors for Just For Men® throughout the 2023 PFL Season.
“We’re pleased to introduce our partnership with Just For Men® for the 2023 PFL Regular Season and Challenger Series,” said PFL CEO Peter Murray. “While confidence is key for our fighters before they enter the SmartCage, equally as important is to help instill confidence amongst our fans throughout their daily lives, and we look forward to collaborating with Just For Men® as the official beard color brand of the PFL.”
