PFL Releases Gegard Mousasi After He Threatened To Sue Them

Ex-Bellator Middleweight Champion Gegard Mousasi has been released by The PFL after he threatened to sue them.

The news comes after the fighter voiced his concern about the promotion. Mousasi had not fought in over a year. His last bout was a loss to Fabian Edwards at Bellator 296. Following the PFL’s acquisition of Bellator, there were concerns that fighters from Bellator were being treated differently. Mousasi claimed the PFL cut communication with him to avoid honoring his Bellator contract. While he considered legal action, his team advised against it as he waited patiently for an update. 

“They feel like I make too much money…Whoever they cannot let fight because they make too much money, they just don’t let ’em fight. If someone don’t want me, I’m like, ‘OK, f*** it, I go,’ but my team around me is like, ‘F*** it, we sue them’. So, if it was up to me, I would just go. But I don’t know, we’ll see,” Mousasi said 

PFL’s Donn Davis claimed that only 5-10 percent of fighters’ futures needed sorting. He felt there would naturally be some hurdles, as an adjustment period was needed following the PFL’s acquisition of Bellator. Now, the PFL has responded by releasing him.
