Medias First Morning Read

 

Friday April 30, 2021

Marshawn Lynch is becoming an owner of the Professional Fighters League with the Super Bowl champion and former All-Pro running back Marshawn Lynch investing in the league. The league will announce the “BeastMode MMA Fighter of the Night, while an anticipated apparel collection between the former Pro Bowler and company is also expected. Lynch joins PFL’s world-class ownership group, which includes Wiz Khalifa, Ted Leonsis, Kevin Hart, Brandon Beck and Mark Burnett.

“I’m really on that owner hype right now, ya feel me,” said Lynch. “Pro teams, leagues, companies and brands, I’m wit it. Ownership allows you to be closer to the action, to keep learning and making a difference. At the end of the day, the PFL opportunity is another blessing, that’s all I can really say. PFL is the future of MMA and it’s always a win-win when you can work with like-minded folks.”
