PFL CEO Peter Murray gave SunSport inside information as to why he has launched this new MMA international league.

Murray told SunSport: “We’re launching the first international league in Europe because it’s the No1 growth market. 

“There’s more demand for quality MMA in Europe than any part of the world and the talent in Europe is very advanced.
