Indian MMA fighter Harsh Pandya is all set to fight Saudi Arabia’s Malik Basahel in a showcase Flyweight bout at the PFL Mena event on May 10 in Saudi Arabia. 

Harsh, who trains out of Team Relentless in Mumbai under coach Jitendra Khare, has already represented India at a global stage and is a medallist at the GAMMA World Championship. Harsh has also competed across the domestic circuit in India and picked up multiple wins. He will be the third Indian fighter to compete under the PFL banner after Vikas Singh Ruhil and Edukondal Rao.

Elsewhere, Malik comes into the event on the back of an extensive amateur career which saw him compete in multiple IMMAF Championships. He also fought on the PFL vs. Bellator fight card which happened back in February. 

The historic season opener, which will take place at The Green Halls, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, will feature fighters from the Featherweight and Bantamweight divisions, competing in the patented PFL Playoff win and advance format.
