Professional Fighters League TicketsThough the World Series of Fighting changed its name to the Professional Fighters League in early 2017, it retains the same structure and organization that made it unique among MMA promotions. Unlike most MMA promotions, which simply have fighters fight one another, perform as well as possible and thereby strive to rise up the rankings in their respective weight divisions, the Professional Fighters League is organized in a way similar to that of team sports such as football and basketball. Here, fighters control their own destinies and have a regular season in which they fight others at public matches. The organization has its own playoffs as well, in which the best fighters compete together for a chance at their weight classes’ respective championships. At long last, near the end of a season, if a fighter is good enough, he or she will have the opportunity to fight for a championship title. By presenting this atypical concept to fight fans, the Professional Fighters League provides audiences with an innovative way to experience combat sports entertainment.
