The NFL draft is fast approaching on April 26-28. Prospects have been training for months to get ready for the draft but for many of them, including prospect Jaleel Wadood of UCLA, preparation for the NFL draft has been a part of their entire lives.

The Professional Fighters League (PFL), which rose from the ashes of the defunct World Series of Fighting, launches it’s inaugural season on June 7 at The Hulu Theater in Madison Square Garden. Ahead of this debut, the rebranded promotion has revealed the pertinent details.

It’s official: Donald Cerrone and Leon Edwards are set to headline the UFC’s return to Asia. MMAjunkie passed along news of Cerrone (33-10 MMA, 20-7 UFC) vs. Edwards (15-3 MMA, 7-2 UFC) earlier this week, and UFC officials today made a formal announcement of the five-round welterweight fight. UFC Fight Night 132 takes place June 23, likely in Singapore at a venue to be determined. It’s expected to stream on UFC Fight Pass, though the full fight card and bout order haven’t been finalized.
