Bubba Jenkins is excited for the opportunity to compete on American soil again.

 

The Brave CF featherweight champion recently signed with PFL and will participate in the upcoming season, the promotion announced last week.

 

Despite his eagerness to return to U.S. competition, Jenkins (14-4) is taking home the valuable lessons he learned abroad. Competing in a foreign land taught Jenkins a lot about fighting. His Brave CF tenure shed light on the motivational and technical differences of another region of the world.

 

“Fighting overseas gave me a taste of the different mixed martial arts that are out there (and) that exist,” Jenkins told MMA Junkie at a recent Dominance MMA media day. “A lot of people fight for their country. They fight for the different things they believe in. So when you get to go overseas, you really do get to see mixed martial arts at a more intimate level. You get to see their culture and the way they live, what they live for, and what they fight for. It actually portrays itself in the cage.

 

“It’s a little different why some of us Americans fight. It was a really good experience. It also helped me gain notoriety in foreign lands where they actually know my name. It helped me get a bigger audience.”
