Professional Fighters League (PFL) may have cut it’s 2020 season short, but they are coming back with a bang next year.

The new season will bring some changes and for MMA fans and fighters in India, the wait will be worthwhile. PFL will be focusing on Indian fighters and India will host several international tournaments in 2021.

Professional Fighters League is planning to sign Indian martial arts fighters, and offer them a life-changing opportunity. As Professional Fighters League CEO Peter Murray claimed, the events that will occur in a few months will set a great foundation for 2020 events, so the future of Indian MMA looks brighter than ever.


Professional Fighters League CEO sees India as a tremendous growth market and in an interview with TOI, he revealed that Professional Fighters League‘s partnership with Eurosport will offer Indian fans access to its high-quality fights.

As the second-largest populated country in the world, there is a tremendous growth opportunity in India for the Professional Fighters League and MMA. We are actively evaluating talent in the region for opportunities to join the Professional Fighters League roster and compete for a million-dollar prize,” Peter Murray said.

Our exciting partnership with Eurosport India provides fans with access to premium MMA content. Combined with an increased presence in India, Professional Fighters League can serve as a catalyst for extending the reach of this sport beyond the over 450 million MMA fans around the world,” he said.

Indian fighters to compete at PFL

Apart from the broadcasting deals, PFL will also offer Indian fighters an opportunity to earn their spot at the roster by competing in the International Qualifiers. Once the fighters reach PFL via the International Qualifier Series, they will be eligible to earn their sport at PFL’s Million dollar tournament.

This year’s International Qualifier Series was impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to bringing the IQS back in the near future and continuing to grow the platform. The IQS is an opportunity for international talent to compete and earn a spot in the PFL. We partner with top regional MMA promotions and hold a tournament, where the winner in each market is considered for a PFL contract.

We believe there is a demand for premium MMA content in India, which really spearheaded our partnership with Eurosport. The IQS is a platform, an opportunity for fighters to earn a contract with the Professional Fighters League. And once on the PFL roster, every fighter has an equal shot at a title and million-dollar prize” Murray concluded.

Indian fighters shortlisted are Srikant Sekhar, Kantharaj Agasa, Sumeet Khade, Govind Ale and Vikas Singh.
