Kayla Harrison MMA TV

Mixed Martial Arts fans will be able to watch elite international athletes competing for the Professional Fighter's League $6 million prizes on MMA TV in a multi-year deal.

Now in its third season, the keenly anticipated PFL contest gets underway in Atlantic City on 23rd April across six weight classes, including the pioneering 155-pound women's division. British athlete Brendan Loughnane will be making his PFL tournament debut and will be in good company; former UFC Champions Anthony Pettis and Fabricio Werdum will be competing, along with ex Bellator World Champion Rory MacDonald and Kamaru Usman's brother Mohammed. They'll be joined by previous PFL Champions Lance Palmer, Natan Schulte, Emiliano Sordi, Ali Isaev and double Olympic Gold Medallist Kayla Harrison.

Each of the 48 fighters will be in the cage at least twice during the regular season's six events during April, May and June, which start at 2230 BST. Those with the most points will then progress to the PFL Playoffs in August, culminating in the Championship finale. The six PFL World Champions in each weight division will each receive $1 million.

PFL Roster

MMA TV founder Siju Roseje commented: "Fans of UFC and MMA will love the PFL because the high profile fighters are in their prime and it's about performing on the night rather than talking the talk, unlike other MMA promotions. It has the thrill of the FA Cup because you can never count out the underdog as everyone's hungry for the cash prize, you only need four wins. You can never predict the outcome in PFL, that's what makes it so exciting to watch."

Fans can watch PFL fights for free as part of a 7 day trial on the MMA TV App and thereafter each fight can be purchased on a PPV basis with the events streaming on demand on MMA TV after they've taken place, along with build up and previous PFL seasons. It'll be the first time that MMA fans will be able to view next-gen stats via the SmartCage™ platform and Cagenomics™ technology.

Bruce Lee

A campaign has begun on the petition website change.org to change the name of Lee County, Fla. to "Bruce Lee County." The area was originally named after the civil war general, Robert E. Lee. But now a movement has been started by a group of local artists known as Artsemble Underground which, according to an NBC News report, is owned by Brian Weaver who said living in a county named after a confederate general does not make him proud.

Norma Dumont vs. Aspen Ladd full Fight video highlights - MMA Fighting

Norma Dumont fought cautious but smart taking a largely uneventful decision over Aspen Ladd in the main event of UFC Fight Night 195 Saturday in Las Vegas. Ladd, who hadn't been in the cage since December 2019, was coming back from a severe knee injury compounded by weight cutting problems. After failing to make weight for a bantamweight match-up two weeks ago, she stepped into the featherweight bout against Dumont on short notice and it all seemed to show. She did little the first three rounds allowing Dumont to build up a lead with little more than her jab. Though Ladd came alive a bit in the last two rounds, Dumont still managed to claim a comfortable unanimous decision.
