PFL 2024: Dakota Ditcheva and Bellator Standouts Unveiled for Regular Season Lineup.

MMA General

British fighter Dakota Ditcheva, alongside several notable names from Bellator, has been officially announced as part of the lineup for the 2024 Professional Fighters League Regular Season.

Dakota Ditcheva, 25, who clinched victory in the PFL Europe flyweight tournament last season, is set to make her debut in the worldwide league. 

Joining her are Bellator women's flyweight champion Liz Carmouche and former lightweight titleholder Patricky 'Pitbull' Freire.

The PFL's acquisition of Bellator in November led to the integration of its talented roster into the league. 

According to PFL chief Peter Murray, this move has heightened the competition in MMA's toughest challenge, the PFL Regular Season.

The PFL operates on a Global League format, featuring six divisions. The top four fighters from each weight class advance to the playoffs, vying for the ultimate prize of $1 million (£790,000) awarded to the winners of each division.
