In his recent interview with MMA Junkie PFL CEO, Peter Murray shared first details about the promotion’s new Challenger series. Fans may expect to see familiar faces as a part of an expert panel.
The main goal of this new series of events is to find competitors for the upcoming PFS seasons and it will have an expert panel consisting of professional athletes mixed with votes from the fans watching along.
Murray announced that a pair of former UFC champions, Vitor Belfort and Tyron Woodley will be a part of the expert panel, alongside individuals that PFL audience is very familiar with as they were part of the commentary booth in past. PFL CEO said that Belfort and Woodley will be a part of the aforementioned panel alongside Randy Couture and Ray Lewis, who will share feedback from someone outside of MMA world. In his words, that mixture of MMA, broader sports, knowledge about being a champion will guarantee great chemistry. Those four individuals will be the anchor of the experts’ panel and will accompany views for the majority of the series.
The PFL Challenger Series will last for eight weeks straight, streaming live on fuboTB and Fubo Sports Network. Each event will feature four fights and will take place at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. More details about the series will be announced in the near future.
