PFL to Return in 2021

Kayla Harrison

The Professional Fighters League announced Tuesday that its 2021 season will begin on April 23 in Las Vegas. The mixed martial arts promotion, which uses a unique format of staging a "regular season" for fighters over the course of several events, followed by a set of "playoff" events to crown a seasonal champion, made the decision to cancel its entire 2020 schedule this past April due to coronavirus concerns.

But the PFL said they plan on returning this coming spring staging six regular season events from April through June at the same location in Las Vegas with fighters staying in the type of confined, bubble atmosphere NBA athletes played their season in. They then look to return for their playoff events in the late summer or fall with the finals held on New Year's Eve.
