PFL Europe confirm the signing of promising Manchester talent Lewis McGrillen

Lewis McGrillen put on a sensational display on his PFL debut back in March.

The Professional Fighters League has announced the signing of young prospect Lewis McGrillen. 

The undefeated Manchester native made his PFL Europe debut in explosive fashion earlier this year and will next compete in Berlin on July 8 at the Verti Music Hall for PFL Europe 2.
With seven professional MMA wins, the 22-year-old Bantamweight is now set to compete against some of the best MMA fighters in the sport in one of Europe's most stacked weight divisions.
McGrillen also joins a roster already packed with leading talent from Manchester, including Dakota Ditcheva, Abraham Bably and 2022 PFL champion, Brendan Loughnane.
Dan Hardy, Director of Fighter Operations of PFL Europe: "We are very excited to bring Lewis McGrillen into the PFL Europe family, and watch him develop into the star that his trajectory predicts.
"There has been a lot of buzz around him since his amateur days, and after his break out performance in Newcastle, we can see why.
"He is a young, powerful, and confident fighter, undefeated and right at the beginning of his promising journey.
"There is no doubt that his presence on any PFL Europe event will bring an intensity and excitement that will follow McGrillen throughout his career."
PFL Europe is the PFL's first international league and will showcase the very best MMA athletes across Europe with quarterly events throughout 2023.
The league, which began in Newcastle last March, features 32 of Europe's top fighters from 14 countries competing across four weight divisions.
After four events, four PFL Europe Champions will be crowned with each Champion taking home $100,000.
Champions also have a chance to earn a spot on the PFL Global Roster and the $1 million global season prize.
PFL Europe 2, taking place on Saturday, July 8 at the Verti Music Hall in Berlin, live on DAZN will feature Berlin-based Bantamweight Farbod Iran Nezhad who will headline against Italy's Francesco Nuzzi, who enters PFL Europe in incredible form having won his last eight fights.

The co-main event will star German striking specialist Khurshed Kakhorov up against the hugely experienced Mokhtar Benkaci from France, as both fighters look to book their place in the 2023 PFL Europe Playoffs.
