This was the wsof.com webpage, now it autodirects you to pfl.
I'm curious how this works out, I do hope it draws in some talented fighters.
But I'm also curious to see if the total grand prize draws in any other athletes that may not have made the jump before without the allusion of money.
Like gymnast, figure skaters and rowers people who do these Olympic level sports but have no avenue once they complete their trials.
I'm just curious if something like $10 mil could be enough to entice some of these other athletes, potentially even a basketball player or football player who just wants to give it a try.
Wonder if they'll lean on IFL and some of their old formats.
Good find Gunner, interesting to hear more about this.
Edit: also curious if anyone thinks PFL will be a name that gains them attention and fans?
Given how most people don't know that MMA is not called UFC it may be weird for people to hear something like PFL.
It is far nicer than PMMA or NMMAA but some people might tune in expecting a different thing or maybe just a league dedicated to multiple different "fighters" from kickboxers to extreme arm wrestling or something.
There was a league that once offered all different types of combat fights in one event, can't remember what they're called right now.
Anyways just curious about the name as well, to me it sounds more professional saying PFL and also opens the door for a PFLA which also sounds way better than MMAA.
