Another former UFC fighter has signed with the new Professional Fighters League.
Ramsey Nijem (9-6) recently inked a deal with the promotion, MMA Fighting has learned.
Nijem left the UFC in 2015 after losing two fights in a row to Carlos Diego Ferreira and Andrew Holbrook. He reemerged on last year’s 25th season of “The Ultimate Fighter,” dubbed “Redemption,” and went 1-1 on the show. He hasn’t competed since then.
Formerly known as World Series of Fighting, PFL, which recently signed fellow ex-UFC fighters Will Brooks, Rick Story and Chris Wade, is expected to announce it’s newly-revamped roster in the coming weeks. Its first event is currently slated for June 7.
