Professional Fighters League Signs Paul Hughes To Exclusive, Multi-fight Contract

The Professional Fighters League (PFL) is thrilled to welcome Paul Hughes, a top contender from Ireland, as the latest addition to its ranks under an exclusive multi-fight agreement. At just 27 years old, Hughes has already dominated the regional circuit and now sets his sights on PFL’s coveted $1 million prize.

“I am over the moon to join the PFL. It’s clear to me that their regular season setup is the pinnacle of MMA competition, offering the biggest reward,” said Hughes. His ambition is clear: to establish himself as the premier lightweight worldwide.

PFL CEO Peter Murray expressed his enthusiasm about Hughes’ signing, noting that the fighter had been on their radar for a significant time. “We’re eager to see Paul ascend within our organization through significant fights that will challenge his abilities,” Murray commented.

Before stepping into the PFL spotlight, Hughes had an impressive run, securing the Cage Warriors Featherweight Title and then advancing to the lightweight class amid a five-fight winning streak. Known for his dynamic finish ability, Hughes has achieved most of his 11 wins by stoppage.

As he prepares for his PFL debut, Hughes joins one of the most competitive divisions in the league, ready to test his skills against some of the best fighters in the world.
