The Professional Fighters League is set to become the first major MMA promotion to hold a card in Saudi Arabia. Mike Tyson will be on hand to present the winner of three title fights in the inaugural PFL vs. Bellator: Champs card with a custom championship belt. Francis Ngannou will also attend the card with the former UFC heavyweight champion set to challenge the winner of the Renan Ferreira and Ryan Bader fight.
