Kayla Harrison and CEO Peter Murray announce Professional Fighters League has signed a broadcast deal with ESPN / ESPN+

That's big news.


2 year deal ... Season 2 will air on Thursday nights (just like season 1)


ESPN will air 10 events on ESPN2 / ESPN+ / ESPN Deportes

May through August (Thursdays) = regular season

October = playoffs

Championship = New Year's Eve (ESPN2)


They will introduce a 155lbs women's tournament featuring Kayla Harrison who is clearly the face of the promotion.


There will still be 6 divisions this year, but since they are adding the W LW division, they are eliminating the MW division.


PFL CEO Peter Murray says the PFL season 2 roster will be revealed over the next 6 weeks.

There will programming on ESPN in the coming weeks (starting next week) including "Making the Cut", a series announcing their 2019 roster.

UFC hoping to book Kevin Lee vs. Gregor Gillespie

Lee was pushing to fight Islam Makhachev on the Russia card, but UFC was more interested in the Gillespie fight. Hasn't been finalized yet, but current plan is to book it in May

Johnny Walker got his MRI results back. Per his manager, he has a mild shoulder injury. He’ll need four weeks of rehab.

They’re shooting for a return in May or June and are interested in fighting Alexander Gustafsson in Stockholm

“The Prodigy” last earned a victory in November 2010 when he knocked out fellow UFC Hall of Famer Matt Hughes in just 21 seconds at UFC 123.

Penn will look to get back on track against Guida, 37, who will return from an 11-month layoff following a submission loss to Charles Oliveira at UFC 225 in June. Prior to that, Guida earned a knockout of fellow veteran lightweight Joe Lauzon.


The latest UFC 237 card now includes:

Rose Namajunas vs. Jessica Andrade – for strawweight title
Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Ryan Spann
Jared Cannonier vs. Anderson Silva
Irene Aldana vs. Bethe Correia
Jose Aldo vs. Alex Volkanovski
Clay Guida vs. B.J. Penn

Romero has been eliminated from the reality show he was recently on, per his manager Abraham Kawa.

He has a doctor appt tomorrow to see if he can be cleared to fight Paulo Costa on April 27 in Florida. If all goes well, expectation is that he will take that main event fight.

The expiration date on Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone's patience is fast approaching.

"Conor won't fight unless it's a main event," Cerrone said. "I don't know if it's an ego thing or a status thing for him. I don't give a s---. I'll fight anyone, anywhere, and I stand by that all the time. I guess he's a prima donna and only takes main event spots. I don't know."

Cerrone, 35, said he intends to fight by July 6, one way or another. White told ESPN last week the UFC is considering booking a fight between Cerrone and ranked lightweight Al Iaquinta. Cerrone said he doesn't care who the opponent is and would "fight [heavyweight] Brock Lesnar" if it were offered.

That said, Cerrone admitted he is annoyed that McGregor (21-4) has failed to accept the matchup thus far. McGregor endorsed the fight on social media in January after Cerrone's win against Alexander Hernandez.

"We were all waiting on Conor for April, and he said he wasn't ready," Cerrone said. "I don't know how in one breath you can say, 'I'll fight anyone, anytime, anywhere,' and the next one say, 'I'm not ready for that one.'

"I'm more annoyed that he went radio silent after putting it out. I get it, you want to stay relevant by putting it out there, but then you can't go radio silent. Sack up, b----. Sign the f---ing paper."

"I call the UFC and tell them what to do, they tell me to shut the f--- up and go sit in the corner," Cerrone said. "I don't have any say on that stuff. What I do know is July is the latest I'm fighting. That's the f---ing latest. I will not wait longer than that."

Yea, Joe Rogan was talking about Conor only wanting Main Events on his podcast last week. Even if it was offered as a Main, Conor would still turn it down claiming Cowboy is easy work and not worthy.

No surprise. All the work of Dana allowing Conor to run everything.

Conor also pushing a rematch with Floyd ... or another boxing match.

After making $100m vs. Floyd he now views any UFC payday as chump change.

His 15 minutes in the UFC is up ... Khabib and Nate set the blueprint on how to beat him ... Eat a few lefts, let him gas, drag him into deep water, pound his ass on the ground. Ballgame.
