The Professional Fighters League is coming to Europe, with the tournament-style MMA promotion launching an exciting European season.
PFL head to the UK with back-to-back shows in Cardiff and London scheduled on August 13 and August 20.
Top talents Rory MacDonald and Kayla Harrison will feature in the respective main-event bouts ahead of the promotion's latest expansion move.
The new league will be separate to the main league that PFL runs each year and new titles will be up for grabs.

The UK shows next month will include qualifying fights for the new European league next year.
PFL's CEO Peter Murray said: "I am pleased to announce the PFL will launch PFL Europe in 2023 to further advance the sport of MMA and fuel PFL’s next phase of global expansion starting in Europe, the number one international MMA growth region.
"Europe is rich with top fighters who are ready to compete in the PFL’s season format on a major stage and passionate MMA fans throughout the region will now have access to premium events staged in Europe."
