Opinion: PFL MENA Another Vital Extension of Focus on Global Success


Continuing its extension and reach to find global talent, the Professional Fighters League will return to the Middle East for another premier event. The PFL MENA league stages its second show on July 12 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, providing a platform for the region’s very best talent.

Already attempting to corner the market in Europe, the PFL has clearly invested its focus on scouting talent worldwide. PFL MENA furthers the company’s vision of being the “Champions League” of MMA by offering fighters around the global a stage to not only win their respective leagues but potentially earn a spot on the global roster, as well. With a platform that sees events streamed in 150 countries through 20 media partners, the PFL gives ultimate exposure throughout the globe. Fighters who find success in the international leagues can also see their stock rise upon joining the global roster.

Two previous PFL Europe winners, Dakota Ditcheva and Jakob Nedoh, were featured during the 2024 regular season. While Ditcheva stamped her ticket to the 2024 playoffs and looks like a good bet to cash in on the $1 million prize, Nedoh was involved in some fun and entertaining fights, which bolstered his profile despite his not making the postseason.

All of this proves why the PFL MENA league is equally important to the rising success of the company as a whole. Entering the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region gives the company access to an untapped market and one on which the PFL can certainly capitalize. Introducing the world to the very best fighters from that region while providing them an opportunity to win the league, a $100,000 grand prize and an opportunity at the PFL regular season in 2025 benefits both sides.

The 2024 PFL MENA regular season features fighters in the welterweight, lightweight, featherweight and bantamweight divisions, which injects even more talent into the MENA league, in particular, the PFL, in general, and perhaps even the sport as a whole. Welterweights and lightweights take center stage at PFL MENA 2, where competitors look to secure a spot in the playoffs.

After already finding success in Europe, the PFL’s second international league is worth keeping an eye on, as the company has proven to be able to find marketable and successful fighters across the world. The MENA market is one that does not get enough attention or credit for those who represent it, but success in the PFL will certainly change that for them.

Gone are the days of needing fighters to be featured in Las Vegas or the United States for them to get their deserved recognition. Not only will the Professional Fighters League do the legwork to find the best talent around the world, but it will bring its leagues to you.

Cornering untapped markets. Expanding international leagues. Introducing entirely new stables of fighters to the world. Those objectives represent the bedrock of the PFL’s success. PFL MENA is yet another reason to take notice of all the company is attempting to do. If history repeats itself, there will be at least one star—if not more—to come out of the PFL MENA league.
