Shane Burgos will test his wings in the PFL. His contract with PFL is not yet officially signed, but he claimed that the deal with the promotion is basically done. Visiting The MMA Hour, the popular featherweight opened up about leaving the UFC.
“I went out there, I tested the free agency market, and I’m excited to announce that I’m signing with the PFL,” Burgos said. “It was not an easy decision. It was an offer I couldn’t turn it. I have two daughters at home, and I have to look at them in the face and say it was worth it when it’s all said and done in the sport. With this deal, I think that will secure that.”
