Professional Fighters League
Paul and the PFL CEO Peter Murray have created a pay-per-view division called “PFL PPVC Super Fight”, which it guarantees the fighters will receive 50% of the revenue generated from its events. This is huge for the fighting community as it has been a notorious fact that they, repeatedly, get left out of the money-making equation when it comes to putting on these events.
