PFL Brings In Nicole Duva To Oversee Legal, Business Affair


The Professional Fighters League (PFL) continues to add to the executive team, this time with the addition of Nicole Duva as Director of Legal and Business Affair.

In her role, Duva will oversee all legal contracts and compliance, as well as regulatory issues, within the PFL. 

Up next for the promotion is PFL 4 on Thursday, June 10 live on ESPN2 featuring the MMA debut of Claressa Shields. The Olympic boxing gold medalist will be facing Brittney Elkin.

“I’m thrilled to be joining such an innovative and exciting organization such as the Professional Fighters League,” said Duva. “The PFL has truly redefined MMA and continues to expand its efforts in more ways than one. With its rapidly-growing business, name brand partners, world class talent and continued global expansion efforts, I am eager to get started.”

Duva joins PFL after a decade spent working at the highest levels of combat sports, rising from in-house counsel to Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel at Main Events, the storied boxing promotion company founded by her late father, Dan Duva. While at the company, Duva learned all of the ins-and-outs of promoting combat sports, working with fighters, venues, media, and broadcast partners around the world.

“Nicole brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the PFL and I am excited to have her join our family,” said Professional Fighters League CEO, Peter Murray. “She has proven to be an invaluable leader in the combat sports arena throughout her career. Adding such an impactful leader to our organization would not have been possible without the guidance of EVP of Business Affairs and General Counsel Jim Bramson, and I look forward to working with Nicole.”
