Between the Links: PFL-Bellator merger, PFL World Championship, UFC Vegas 82

The PFL has officially absorbed Bellator MMA in a blockbuster deal made official on Monday morning, and then PFL co-founder Donn Davis joined Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour to answer a lot of the burning questions surrounding it. While the news is certainly big, did Davis do himself and the promotion a disservice with some of the things he said?

On a special Thanksgiving edition of Between the Links, MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck and Jed Meshew discuss the deal a few days later and what it all means, Davis suggesting PFL now a “co-leader” with the UFC, why Dana White likely isn’t worried about it, and how feasible the structure is for the PFL moving into 2024. Additionally, they discuss the Friday’s PFL World Championship card, the $49.99 price tag, Brendan Allen’s UFC Vegas 82 main event win over Paul Craig, how close Allen is to a title shot, what they’re thankful for in MMA, and much more.
