The PFL is preparing to launch its new Challenger Series and has revealed a few familiar faces will be a part of the experience.
This new series of events will seek to find talent to compete in upcoming PFL seasons and will have a judging panel consisting of athletes combined with votes from the fans watching along.
A pair of former UFC champions, Vitor Belfort and Tyron Woodley, will be panel experts for the new series, alongside a few familiar faces that have graced the PFL commentary booth in the past.
“I can talk about the panel,” PFL CEO Peter Murray explained to MMA Junkie in a recent interview. “On that panel, Vitor will be participating. Tyron Woodley will be participating, and Randy Couture will be participating in addition to our partner, Ray Lewis, someone outside of MMA. So, you know, a lot of personality and major expertise in combat, MMA, broader sports, champions, and so we think it’s going to be great chemistry.
“Those those four I mentioned, they will be the anchor panel experts, and so they’ll be with us for the significant majority of the events, that crew. We think it’s going to work really well.”
The PFL Challenger Series will feature eight weeks of action, streaming live on fuboTV and the Fubo Sports Network. Each week there will be four fights that will take place at Universal Studios in Orlando, Fla. More details about the series will be revealed in the near future.
