The Professional Fighters League (PFL), the fastest-growing and most innovative sports league, is proud to announce that the UK’s Marc Diakiese (17-7) has signed an exclusive contract with the promotion, agreeing to fight in 2024 before entering the 2025 PFL Regular Season next year.

“I am proud to call PFL my new home, and I can’t wait to get started. I plan to debut in the SmartCage later this year to announce my arrival to the roster, and then I will enter the regular season where I’m coming for that one million dollar prize money.” Marc Diakiese said.

He continues: “I back myself at Lightweight, and I’m coming for everyone. This weight class is mine for the taking, and I feel the PFL Championship has my name all over it in 2025.”

At 31 years of age hailing from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, Marc Diakiese started his career on an 11-fight win streak and has fought against the likes of Rafael Fiziev and Michael Johnson. Keen to build momentum in his MMA career, Marc plans to use the PFL Regular Season to enable him to remain active in the SmartCage and achieve his career goals of becoming a champion.

Diakiese will bring his wealth of experience to the PFL where he will make his promotional debut in the near future.
