“I feel like legal action has to be taken against them at this point,” Palmer said. “And it’s unfortunate because I’ve had their back since before anyone even thought they were going to have their $1 million paydays.”

Since Palmer stepped forward, prominent MMA manager, Malki Kawa took to social media to say he too has told PFL to release his clients in Justin Willis and Brendan Loughnane.

“I’ve also requested the release for (Brendan Loughnane) and (Justin Willis) and have stayed quiet about it. I will be filing suit next week as talks have stalled at the Professional Fighters League,” he wrote.

Kawa then said he also declined the monthly stipend.

“Our issues are also related to the canceling of the season and I also have declined the 1000 a month stipend for both of my clients,” he added.

Heavyweight, Mohammed Usman, the brother of Kamaru, is also now back with Titan FC. So, it appears he was released from the PFL.

In the PFL, Lance Palmer is currently 11-0 where he won the first two seasons and is arguably the face of the promotion.

Justin Willis, meanwhile, is a UFC veteran and was set to make his PFL debut this season. In the UFC, he went 4-1 but was released following his lone loss to Curtis Blaydes. Brendan Loughnane, meanwhile, was someone many thought Dana White should’ve signed after his performance on the Contender Series. 2020 was expected to be his first full season in PFL. But, he did go 2-0 in the promotion in non-tournament fights.

Whether or not PFL will release these fighters is unknown at this time.
