The Professional Fighter’s League has officially ended their Free Agency, or at least one part of it as news that the PFL had reached a Multi Year deal with ESPN to host the PFL PPV Super Fight Division that is set to launch next year on ESPN +  Following on the announcement of the Bellator MMA acquisition and the PFL season finals, this deal will see the PFL regular season, playoffs, and world championship runo n both ESPN’s linear and digital platforms.

PFL has made plans to announce a PFL Superfight division in 2024 and ESPN+ is going to be the distribution, which means if Cris Cyborg was to fight Kayla Harrison or Larissa Pacheco next year she would  be part of this broadcast partnership.  The deal is expected to help expand shoulder programming and pre-post fight match coverage.

“We’re really excited about the next chapter, obviously ESPN is a key destination for MMA and not only are we focused on growing the PFL, but we’re playing a role in growing the sport here in the U.S., engaging avid MMA fans as well as bringing stick and ball fans over,” says Peter Murray, CEO of the PFL, in an interview. “We’re really in position to have a successful launch of our pay-per-view business.”

Cyborg who spoke to James Lynch after news of the acquisition was announced said that her team was set to meet with the PFL sometime this week, it will be interesting to see which direction Cris Cyborg decides in terms of her final career fights.
