PFL is the only organization in MMA with the sports-season format, where individual fighters compete in a regular season, playoffs, and championship each year, making PFL a “win and advance” meritocracy like all other major sports leagues.

The PFL fighter roster comes from over 25 countries and 25% of PFL fighters are top 25 world-ranked.

The company leads in technology and innovation, with its proprietary PFL SmartCage powering its nest-gen viewing experience including real-time data and live betting odds.

MMA is now mainstream for advertisers, and PFL has two-dozen major brand sponsors, including Bose, Bud Light, GEICO, US Marine Corps, and Celsius Energy Drink. PFL airs primetime live in the U.S. on ESPN and ESPN+ and is broadcast and streamed to 150 countries with over 20 leading international media distribution.

PFL was founded in 2018 and is backed by major blue-chip investors including SRJ/PIF, Ares, Luxor Capital, Elysian Park Ventures, Waverley Capital, Knighthead, Legends, and numerous NBA, MLB, NHL, and MLS team owners.

MMA is the growth sport of this decade, with 650 million fans worldwide, the youngest audience demo of any sport, and true global revenue streams.
