Zoltan Bathory Of “Five Finger Death Punch” Signs Deal With The UFC

Zoltan Bathory and his partners Brandon McCraghen, Heather Gracie and Keelan Lawyer of PGF World (Professional Grappling Federation) just inked a deal with the UFC – for their BJJ competition league to be broadcasted on UFC Fight Pass!

This represents an enormous leap for PGF World, as well as for Jiu-Jitsu in general, as emphasized by Bathory to BJJEE:

It’s a true underdog story for the PGF.

They held and broadcasted the previous seasons from a small church in Alabama… Shoe string budgets.
Athletes would travel there and sleep on the mats they were competing on by day.

Now we moved it all to Vegas and offer the biggest grand prize in BJJ.

He added more information in a social media post:

Pairing up with UFC Fight Pass is gonna give us an opportunity to turn our vision into a reality, and we couldn’t possibly ask for a better partner to help us accomplish that mission.

And what better place to do it than in the combat capital of the world, Las Vegas!

Thanks to everyone who has supported us so far.
This is just the beginning of something really special.
