The list of participants lining up for the PFL’s $1 million prize became a lot more intriguing with the latest roster reveal for the 2019 season.
With almost all of last season’s champions returning (with the exception of light heavyweight Sean O’Connell, who retired after last season), the league’s second season already looked to be off to a promising start. On Thursday, the promotion announced a number of returnees and new signings, including 2018 standouts Chris Wade (14-5) and Andre Harrison (20-1).
ESPN was first to report the news.
Wade, a former UFC lightweight, lost a close split decision to eventual tournament winner Natan Schulte that cost him a spot in the PFL finals. He had one of the early highlights of the 2018 season, launching a flying kick at Yuki Kawana before finishing with a first-round submission.
Harrison entered the 2018 PFL season having previously held the league’s featherweight title, but lost a unanimous decision in a rematch against Lance Palmer in the semi-finals.
