The Professional Fighters League, a fledgling mixed martial arts organization that made its first appearance in the District last month, is set to come back in the fall for a portion of its postseason, the PFL and Events DC announced Friday.

The PFL semifinals are to be held Oct. 20 at the new Entertainment and Sports Arena on track to open in September in Congress Heights on the campus of the former St. Elizabeths Hospital.

“We are excited to be bringing our unique brand of MMA back to the Washington, D.C., area,” PFL chief executive Peter Murray said in a statement. “It has been a monumental first regular season for the PFL, and we are intent on continuing to elevate our brand through strong partners like Events DC. It is truly an honor to be able to bring a global property like the PFL to a beautiful new venue like the Entertainment and Sports Arena.”
