Amanda Serrano Set for MMA Return After Signing With The PFL

The PFL has announced an agreement with Amanda Serrano, who will compete in MMA as part of the ‘PFL PPV Super Fight Division.’

Serrano is the current undisputed featherweight champion in boxing, as she bounced back from her loss to Katie Taylor at lightweight with wins over Sarah Mahfoud and Erika Cruz Hernandez, respectively.

She is set to face Heather Hardy on August 5th, 2023, on the Jake Paul vs Nate Diaz card. 

Although that may be the case, Serrano does have an MMA background. Her current MMA record stands at 2-0-1.

The star’s last MMA fight was in 2021, when she defeated Valentina Garcia. Not only that, but Serrano also has a 5-0 record in No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu.

The deal puts her alongside the other PFL stars, such as Jake Paul, Francis Ngannou, and Kayla Harrison.

Serrano’s first bout will be in the PFL SmartCage. However, an opponent has not yet been confirmed.

The PFL’s commitment to promoting high-profile, pay-per-view events with some of the biggest MMA stars in the world showcases an incredible opportunity to elevate my career to new heights and prove my ability beyond just the ring.

“I may be known for boxing, but I’ve always loved and trained in MMA and Jiu-Jitsu, knowing those skills would only add to my ability when going against any opponent,” Serrano
