The Professional Fighters League (PFL) has announced the matchups for PFL MENA 2, taking place at The Green Halls in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on July 12th, 2024.

The second fight card of PFL MENA’s debut season features fighters in the Welterweight and Lightweight divisions competing in the patented PFL Playoff win and advance format.

In the Welterweight main event, PFL veteran and multiple-time champion Jarrah “The Jordanian Lion” Al-Silawi (19-6-0) of Jordan meets Iraq’s Bashar Thaer (7-2-0).

PFL MENA 2 will air live in primetime on MBC Action; the free to air broadcasts will be accessible to fans across the region.

In addition to PFL MENA, MBC Action will air the PFL Global Season, PFL Europe, the Bellator Champions Series and PFL’s Pay-Per-View Superfight Division events.

In the Lightweight Division, Josh Togo (13-5-0) of Lebanon takes on Iran’s Mohsen Mohammadseifi (4-2-0), and Saudi Arabia’s own Hattan Alsaif, fresh from her spectacular mixed martial arts (MMA) debut earlier this month, makes her return to the PFL SmartCage in a Women's Atomweight amateur showcase bout.

Pete Murray, CEO of PFL, said: "The Professional Fighters League is excited to return to Riyadh for PFL MENA 2. The PFL along with our great partners, SURJ Sports, could not be happier to see a shared vision become a reality. PFL MENA has put a global spotlight on great fighters across the region and provided passionate MMA fans with a premium live experience.”
