Professional Fighters League banner, where he dominated
Markes en route to a unanimous decision in August. A former
Fight Exclusive Night heavyweight titleholder, Bajor is 7-1 as of
late and is riding a four-bout winning streak. The 34-year-old
Polish fighter boasts an 84% finishing rate with 10 stoppages by
