Cedric Doumbé, the French kickboxing sensation turned MMA contender, has committed his future to the Professional Fighters League PFL with a multi-fight, multi-year extension, marking a significant move for both Doumbé and the promotion.

Fresh off his remarkable debut in PFL, which saw him secure a stunning nine-second knockout, Doumbé is poised to continue his journey with the organization. Despite a setback in his second outing due to a toe injury, Doumbé's potential remains undeniable, prompting PFL officials to secure his services for the foreseeable future.

Announcing Doumbé's contract renewal, PFL CEO Peter Murray expressed his enthusiasm, stating, 

"Re-signing Cedric Doumbe to a multi-year contract extension has been one of our highest priorities...Cedric is a large part of our continued growth in France."

In addition to his contract extension, Doumbé's next challenge awaits him at Bellator Paris, where he is scheduled to face seasoned competitor Derek Anderson. Set to take place at the Accor Arena on May 17, the event will be broadcast live on Max in the United States, offering fans an electrifying showdown between two formidable fighters.

Doumbé's transition from kickboxing champion to MMA contender has been met with anticipation and excitement. With a proven track record of success, including a dominant reign as GLORY welterweight champion, Doumbé's presence in the MMA arena adds a new dimension to the sport.

His upcoming clash with Derek Anderson promises to be a highlight of the Bellator Paris card, featuring an intriguing main event showdown between bantamweight champion Patchy Mix and Magomed Magomedov.

As Doumbé continues to carve his path in the world of MMA, his commitment to PFL and his upcoming bout against Anderson signify the next chapter in his journey toward greatness. Fans can expect nothing short of an exhilarating performance as Doumbé showcases his skills on the global stage once again.
