Brisbane based Aaron Blackie has signed for American promotion Professional Fighters League (PFL).
News of the signing was confirmed by his management, Ginnen Group Sports.
A Judoka and BJJ black belt, Blackie holds a 8-2 professional MMA record. He made his debut back in 2014 and quickly built a 4-0 record before a serious injury jeapordised his career. He spent nearly three years on the sidelines before returning in 2018 and has gone 4-2 since then.
The two losses occurred to Sam Hibberd via split decision and a TKO loss against Jesse Medina, who Blackie had previously defeated.

Blackie trains and coaches out of the Base Training Centre and in his last outing, he secured the most impressive win of his career with a 25-second knock-out of Diego Pereira.
He is expected to make his PFL debut in March and will be competing in the featherweight division.
No opponent has been confirmed as yet.
