Default PFL: Evolution of MMA - a Globalverse dynasty

1990 was a momentous occasion in the history. It was the year when the Berlin Wall or the Wall of Shame as coined by some, started getting demolished unifying all of Germany. It was also the year when Germany celebrated by winning the football world cup for the third time.

1990 was the year which saw unification of Yemen, breakup of Yugoslavia, separation of Namibia from South Africa and the Baltic States declaring independence from Soviet Union.

1990 was also the year which saw the creation of the first web server and the foundation for the World Wide Web.

1990 was also the year when a small time illegal fight promoter in Brazil got a vision. A vision to build a sport from scratch, a vision to build a globally renowned brand, a vision to gift audience worldwide a new form of entertainment, Mixed Martial Arts or MMA.

1990 was the year when the evolution of MMA began….

Under the vision of Luciano de Oliviera, a small time underground fight promoter in Sao Paulo, PFL opened it’s doors in 1990. Luciano looked to build a place where expert in all martial art forms could fight with each other. He coined a new term, Mixed Martial Arts or MMA, a new form of sport which will unite all martial arts. He had long been promoting small illegal fights, but it was time to think big, it was time to go national. Luciano along with his trusty aide, Denilson started building the framework and soon they finalized the rules:

Lookback – Season 1

The early seasons went through a lot of rule changes. The first season would start with a league format with 10 fighters across different nationalities in 8 weight classes – Heavyweight to Flyweight, with top 4 making it to the knockouts. Anybody who scored 20 points or above would qualify directly without the need of completing all his remaining league fights.

The biggest story of the season would come from Zacharis Gomez, an Argentinian bantamweight fighter who would become the first person to qualify for knockouts with 5 straight 1st round K.O of his opponents. But he became embroiled in controversy when news of his home orgies with prostitutes and friends would leak leading to him being suspended for 10 months.

He emerges strongly from that incident though, winning the first ever bantamweight GP and becoming the bantamweight champion. He would go on to win a silver medal at the world submission wrestling championships as well.

Heavyweight division was all about two clear cut favorites who were miles above the rest. USA’s Rick Stanley and Brazil’s Niguel Florio. They had been at each other’s throats throughout the season with both taunting and abusing each other during interviews and fan signings. After both of them got better of their countrymates in the respective semis, they locked horns and in a superb final that had almost nuclear levels of heat, Stanley got the better of Florio to become the first heavyweight champion.

Lookback – Season 2(92-93)

The second season underwent a change in format as this time a GP was implemented with the winners getting a title shot. Even though this was a much better in terms of logistically planning the season, the champions had to wait for more than a year to fight and so most of them were very unhappy.

Heavyweight Division


The season belonged to Ari “The Finnisher” Peltonen. The heavyweight from Finland, Ari rampaged through the Grand Prix with first round knock outs en route to winning the thing before he overcame a resilient Stanley and became the new heavyweight champion.

We dominated the end of year awards in 1994 and we rose to High Level Regional which meant that we would now be able to hand out exclusive contracts. We also signed contracts with Televisao Esporte and National Pride TV which meant our events will be shown in USA, South and Central America.

With so much positives coming out of this year, the next year would be a crucial one where we change our format a little. Stay tuned.

Lookback – 1994-1995 (Heavyweight to Welterweight)


Heavyweight Division


Ari Peltonen had been dominating the scene ever since he won the second Heavyweight GP, winning the title and then defending it against Jack Cobblepot but his thunder was stolen by Hassan Fezzik who debuted in PFL in ’94 and defeated PFL mainstays like Boniek, Rabalais and Sachs before he got his shot at title and then in February of this year, he defeated Peltonen to become the new heavyweight champion.

The best newcomer honors definitely go to Christopher Sharp whose post-fight interviews and his brutal 1st round knockouts in the Heavyweight GP has made him a fantastic fighter to watch. He is due to fight in the GP final against Abdullah Sachs and many predict that he will be the new winner.


Top 10


#10 – Duke Aiona (Kailua, Hawaii, USA) (5-1, 2-1 PFL)
#9 - Jack Cobblepot (Phoenix, Arizona, USA) (9-5-3, 8-5-3 PFL)
#8 - Fatuma Roy (San Francisco, USA) (8-1, 2-1 PFL)
#7 - Blaze Rabalais (Montreal, Canada) (#23 WR, 13-3, 4-3 PFL)
#6 – Grzegorz Boniek (Warsaw, Poland) (#18 WR, 11-2, 5-2 PFL)
#5 - Niguel Florio (Sao Paulo, Brazil) (#14 WR, 10-5-2 PFL)
#4 – Christopher Sharp (Erie, Pennsylvania, USA) (#4 WR, 10-0, 2-0 PFL)
#3 – Ari Peltonen (Helsinki, Finland) (#14 P4P, #2 WR, 11-1, 6-1 PFL)
#2 – Rick Stanley (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA) (#22 P4P, #3 WR, 11-2-1 PFL)
#1 – Hassan Fezzik (Istanbul, Turkey) (#11 P4P, #1 WR, 16-0, 4-0 PFL) (Champion)



Light Heavyweight Division

This division is all about Aleksei Chekhov. Debuting in 92 and winning the 2nd Light Heavyweight GP, he went on to win the title and has not lost a match in the last three years.

The two newcomers, Aonan Jetikarn, the Thai national karateka and Alfonso Villar, Muay Thai exponent from Brazil who will be fighting each other in the Light Heavyweight finals has blazed through their respective opponents earning some glory for themselves and bursting through the top 10 ranks.


Top 10


#10 – Affonso Villar (Curitiba, Brazil) (4-0, 3-0 PFL)
#9 - Robun Yamazaki (Kitakyushu, Japan) (6-5-1 PFL)
#8 - Ebizo Fujishima (Kawasaki, Japan) (9-2, 3-2 PFL)
#7 - Brycen Evans (Wales) (#23 WR, 8-1, 2-1 PFL)
#6 – Baylen Delvaux (Vancouver, Canada) (#14 WR, 14-1, 2-1 PFL)
#5 – Aonan Jetikarn (Thailand) (#11 WR, 7-0, 3-0 PFL)
#4 – Ernest Hord (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA) (#15 WR, 17-1, 4-1 PFL)
#3 – Elgar (Salvador, Brazil) (#15 P4P, #3 WR, 10-3 PFL)
#2 – Leon Banks (Boston, Massachusetts, USA) (#13 P4P, #2 WR, 9-3 PFL)
#1 – Aleksei Chekhov (Moscow, Russia) (#6 P4P, #1 WR, 10-0, 6-0 PFL) (Champion)


Middleweight Division


The poster boy of the division and poster boy of MMA in whole, Mario de Souza is undoubtedly the biggest star in MMA now. P4P the best wrestler in the world, he had been with PFL since the start and only lost one match, his first title shot against Zaco but barring that nobody has come close to unseating the Brazilian. He has won 13 matches in PFL, including the revenge title match against Zaco and then put in two defenses, against his contemporary Brazilian Braulio Moura and Angelino Cascone.

Braulio Moura has been the most impressive of newcomers who was undefeated till his loss to Mario.


Top 10

#10 – Bambang Sriyanto (Sumatra, Indonesia) (8-1, 2-1 PFL)
#9 - Carlos da Guia (Sao Paulo, Brazil) (2-0 PFL)

#6 – Braulio Moura (Sao Paulo, Brazil) (#14 WR, 4-1 PFL)
#5 – Balagot Sripituksakul (Thailand) (#7 WR, 14-2, 3-2 PFL)
#4 – Amir Gasper (Lincoln, Nebraska, USA) (#4 WR, 18-1, 3-1 PFL)
#3 – Zaco (Sao Paulo, Brazil) (#25 WR, 9-2-1 PFL)
#2 – Fernando Amaro (Madrid, Spain) (#20 P4P, #2 WR, 17-0-1, 2-0 PFL)
#1 – Mario de Souza (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) (#1 P4P, #1 WR, 13-1 PFL) (Champion)



Welterweight Division


Winner of the 1st ever Welterweight GP, Englishman Jim Carpenter is still going strong and has been champion for three years now. Putting in the most defenses out of all the champions at 4, he is destined to rule the roost for a long time.
Bobby Brubaker and Darin Blood round off the impressive newcomers list who are on their way to meet in the finals of the Welterweight GP although they have to overcome their semi-final opponents first.

Top 10


#10 – Darin Blood (Kailua, Hawaii, USA) (4-0, 2-0 PFL)
