RE: Jake Paul signs MMA contract with UFC competitor PFL
You are viewing a single comment's thread:
oh wow how interesting. Do you think that the PFL has a genuine shot against the UFC? I give it exactly 10 minutes and 33 seconds until a Saudi or Qatar-backed rogue fighting championship league is created. LIV Golf 2.0 in the works???
A new example is the United Arab Emirates is attracting top cricket talent and draining player pools in other more established nations competitions. A sign of the times.
I think the scenario you are talking about would be far more likely to actually take on UFC. I think this is kind of like "The Rock" buying XFL and hoping his fame can push them over the edge. PFL is going to need to have a lot more than just Jake Paul to make it happen. Jake us untested so a lot is lying on his ability to perform.
A Saudi or Qatar-backed FC would have the money necessary to compete and lure top talent over just like LIV did. I don't think that PFL has very much money at all. They are likely almost entirely operating off of hype.
