Professional Grappling Federation (PGF) have just announced a new partnership and an incredible $100,000 of prize money for season 6 in 2024. The prize money represents a massive opportunity for the grapplers who will be competing in the upcoming season but the most unusual part of the announcement was undoubtedly the partnership that the promotion has struck. They will be working with Heather Grace Gracie and Zoltan Bathory, the guitarist for Five Finger Death Punch who is also a Judo and BJJ black belt.
Not only is the prize money obviously going to attract some serious talent to compete in the season, but PGF have also been able to bring in four legendary team captains too. Roger Gracie and Andre Galvao are probably the most accomplished competitors out of the captains for season 6, but the other two are also among the biggest names in the sport. Jeff Glover and Eddie Bravo are the final two team captains for this season and collectively these four men have an incredible amount of Jiu-Jitsu knowledge that they can share with their teams.
With Zoltan Bathory and Heather Grace Gracie lending their expertise to the existing team of Brandon McCaghren and Keelan Lawyer, the minds behind PGF are poised to make season 6 the biggest of the promotion’s history. Coupling that with the incredible amount of experience that the team captains have and one of the biggest prizes in the sport’s history and it looks as though 2024 is set to be an incredible year for PGF. The upcoming season will launch on April 21st, 2024 in Las Vegas, Nevada and it’ll be interesting to see who puts their name forward to compete this year.
Brandon McCaghren, one of the founders of PGF, announced the news of the new partnership and the $100,000 of prize money for season 6 in a recent post to his official Instagram account:
