The Professional Fighters League and American Top Team have teamed up to deliver some Thanksgiving cheer to the South Florida community this holiday season.
On Wednesday, PFL CEO Peter Murray, PFL women’s lightweight contender Kayla Harrison and 2018 PFL lightweight champion Natan Schulte joined ATT members Sidney Outlaw and John Eblen to deliver turkeys to the renowned training gym as well as Gateway Community Outreach, “an organization committed to preventing homelessness and restoring self-sufficiency through food donations, job placement, credit counseling and more.”
The donations are part of promotion’s “Fight for the Community” initiative, which has partnered with organizations such as Atlantic City Rescue Mission and Randy Couture’s GI foundation in the past.
“On the steps to the PFL cage is the question, ‘What do you Fight For?’ Our elite athletes fight for honor, respect and family. At the PFL, we all fight for our community,” Murray said. “American Top Team is home to elite MMA fighters, including several of our own such as Kayla Harrison and Natan Schulte. Kayla and Natan are preparing for their championship fights on ESPN2 on New Year’s Eve at Madison Square Garden where they’ll have a shot at a title and million-dollar prize, but took time out of their busy schedules to give back.
“As an organization, we place an emphasis on getting out, making a difference and bringing the fight to the community each and every day.”
