President Of PFL Operations Ray Sefo says that the promotion is proud so many fighters want to compete there, but there are only so many slots available.

"We are proud that PFL is the organization fighters want to be part of, as these guys have the talent and star power to have chosen any MMA organization," said Sefo. "PFL has only 68 slots this year for fighters, and the harsh reality is it is highly competitive to get into this league. Fighters from around the world want to control their own destiny, and after seeing six of their peers last year cash $1 million checks and win championship belts, they have come hungry to compete."

PFL Season 2 kicks off on May 9, but no fights have been announced at this time.
