Shane Burgos Signs with Professional Fighters League

Shane Burgos finished his deal with the UFC, has decided to test free agency and will now be signing with a new promotion.

Burgos, who defeated Charles Jourdain in July for UFC: Long Island announced today during the MMA Hour that he finished his last fight on his UFC contract, and after testing free agency. He has decided to sign with the Professional Fighters League.

“You want to see what you’re worth, and what other people think you’re worth,” Burgos said on the July 18 edition of The MMA Hour. “You know what you’re worth, so you want to see if it matches.”

Burgos was in contract negotiations with PFL prior to signing with the UFC, however the money was not what they wanted to pay him at first and after his stint with the UFC, they offered him a better contract to which he accepted.

Burgos will be fighting in an outside season fight (non-tournament) in November/December. He is most likely to be competing in the 2023 season for the PFL Championship and $1 Million dollars.

Burgos had also announced he will be able to commentate as well for the PFL, it will be exciting to see what they bring to the table.
