Another UFC veteran is making his way to the Professional Fighters League (PFL) as Justin Willis has reportedly signed with the promotion and is competing in season three.
MMA Junkie first reported the signing and Willis will look to claim the $1 million prize as a heavyweight in season three of the PFL.
Willis (8-2-0) won four of five during his time competing in the UFC, with those wins coming over James Mulheron, Allen Crowder, Chase Sherman and Mark Hunt. Willis has suffered a total of two losses as a professional MMA fighter, with those coming to the duo of Curtis Blaydes and Henry Solis. Willis also competed once in the Strikeforce promotion as an amateur MMA fighter, defeating Steve Dickey by unanimous decision at Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Noons II. Willis has competed a total of ten times as a professional MMA fighter and half of those bouts went to the judges scorecards.
There is no word at this time as to when Willis will make his promotional debut, as the third season of the PFL isn’t expected to begin until mid-2020.
