“Filthy” Tom Lawlor is returning to MMA, signing with Professional Fighters’ League. Lawlor, the former MLW Champion, told ESPN’s Ariel Helwani that he has signed with the MMA promotion and will fight in the light heavyweight division before the end of the year.

Lawlor said, “I have been given the golden lottery ticket to compete in this year’s PFL in the light heavyweight division for $1 million. I am here to tell you it is my absolute goal, it is my destiny, to take home that money, and it’s gonna happen at the end of 2020.”

Lawlor has a 10-7-1 record in professional MMA. His most recent fight was a unanimous decision loss to Deron Winn at Golden Boy Promotions: Liddell vs. Ortiz 3 in November 2018.
