LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Professional Fighters League will stage its entire 2021 regular season in Las Vegas beginning April 23.

The PFL canceled its entire 2020 season last April due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It plans to stage its regular-season events without fans on six dates from late April to late June, and the fighters will be protected inside a bubble at a property owned by Caesars Entertainment, most likely Caesars Palace or the Rio.

The playoffs will begin in late summer, with the PFL Championship finals on New Year's Eve.
