The Palace Fighting Championship announced earlier this week that it has signed a total of eighteen fighters to it’s roster in recent days. Among the new signees are multiple UFC and WEC veterans including Alex Schoenauer, Gabe Ruediger, Jason Von Flue, and Lodune Sincaid.

“I’m very excited to be able to bring in the talent we’re announcing,” PFC President Christian Printup said in a press release. “We have said from the beginning that we’re not here to take over the sport, consciously take away from anyone’s market share, or anything like that. We just focus on making the PFC the best we can and this is another step in the process.”

According to Printup, many of the new fighters will debut at PFC 11 on November 20th. The show will take place at the Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino in Lemoore, California.
