PFL Reveals Lightweights & Featherweights For 2021 Season

The PFL has announced a list of participants for two weight classes in the 2021 season.

On April 23, the promotion will make its return after being shelved in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The lightweights have 10 participants, while the featherweight division is at 8. There will be two more additions to the featherweight lineup. Those fighters will be revealed in due time.

Here’s what PFL CEO Peter Murray had to say on the upcoming 2021 season during a press release.

“We’re excited to officially unveil the first two rosters for the 2021 season,” said PFL CEO Peter Murray. “Our fighter roster is top-tier, and we are looking forward to having fighters from around the world be a part of our league and season. PFL is a fighter-first organization and we are proud to showcase the depth and breadth of our rosters.”

PFL President of Fighter Operations, Ray Sefo, also chimed in.

“It has always been our goal to bring in the best talent the MMA world has to offer, and I believe we’ve done that with the 2021 roster,” said PFL President of Fighter Operations, Ray Sefo. “The featherweight and lightweight divisions are some of the toughest in the sport and our past champions are going to have an even tougher road to the title than ever before. I can’t wait to kick this year off on April 23.”
