PFL Underrated Signing Jordan Young

Professional Fighters League 2021 season begins on April 23rd. PFL signed free agents Anthony Pettis, Bubba Jenkins, Fabricio Werdum. Underrated PFL signing Jordan Young!

Jordan Young Bellator

Jordan Young youngest fighter in the PFL Light Heavyweight division. Before signing with PFL was a hot prospect for Bellator. Defeating tough fighters with undefeated records. Six fight winning streak with Bellator.. Before losing to Julius Anglickas.

Submission specialist, Choking out his opponents to victory. Leading to a current record of 11-1.

Crazy that Bellator allowed Jordan Young to leave and test free agency. Good for Jordan Young to test the market and now can make a career with Professional Fighters League. Felt disrespected by Bellator after being a hot prospect for them, Finishing fights early. Not being a boring fighter. Unfair treatment from Jordan Young’s side.

“A lot of people don’t know who I am across the MMA community because they haven’t had the opportunity to see me,” Young said. “At 25 years of age and with an 11-1 record, I think that’s kind of absurd. If you take a couple steps back, I’ve only fought two or three times a year. A lot of those fights are first-round finishes. I’m fresh. I’m healthy. I make my check and then I sit for six months and you don’t hear a word about me. That’s like the worst treatment I think you can give an up-and-coming fighter who has star potential and is winning his fights in the fashion I’m winning them, which is without being touched.
