Ex-UFC Talent Don Madge Announces Signing with PFL for Oct. 27 Debut

By Tristen Critchfield Sep 21, 2021


South African lightweight Don Madge will make his Professional Fighters League debut next month.

The two-time UFC veteran announced that he has signed with PFL and will square off against Nathan Williams at the organzation’s championship event on Oct. 27.

[Oct. 27] I’m showing why I’m the best [lightweight] out there,” Madge wrote on his Instagram story. “And I’m only just getting going.”

The PFL Championship takes place at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Fla., and will see fighters from six different weight classes vie for a $1 million prize. The card is topped by a women’s lightweight showdown between Kayla Harrison and Taylor Guardado. Madge vs. Williams will presumably take place on the preliminary draw.

Madge hasn’t competed since September 2019, when he took a unanimous decision over Fares Ziam at UFC 242. Since then, “Magic Man” had proposed bouts against three different opponents fall through due to a number of issues. Madge is 9-3 as a professional and is currently on a six-bout winning streak that includes a second-round KO of Te Edwards in his Octagon debut at UFC Fight Night 138.
