Professional Fighters League
The Professional Fighters League (PFL) and the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) are pleased to announce a five (5) year partnership to launch a robust and comprehensive anti-doping program for PFL athletes around the globe.
USADA will serve as the independent third-party administrator of PFL’s year-round Anti-Doping Policy beginning on July 11, 2023.
The Professional Fighters League (PFL) presents MMA for the first time in the sport-season format where individual fighters control their own destiny, competing in a regular season, playoffs, and championship. PFL’s differentiated format and exciting fights sparked breakout growth for the league.
The PFL Season features elite MMA athletes across six weight classes, with each fighter having two fights during the PFL Regular Season.
Fighters earn regular season points based on their performance, with 3 points for a win, plus bonus points for knockouts and submissions. Each fighter is then seeded in standings for their weight class based on their point totals.
Following the Regular Season is the single-elimination PFL Playoffs which leads to the PFL World Championship. The winners of each title bout are crowned PFL World Champion of their respective weight class and earn $1 million.
