PFL Unveils Complete Playoff Card for August 4th featuring Featherweights and Light Heavyweights
The Professional Fighters League (PFL) is set to make a thrilling return on August 4th at the Boeing Center, located in Tech Port, San Antonio. The upcoming event will showcase a remarkable lineup of featherweight and light heavyweight matchups as the main attractions.
Headlining the card, Bubba Jenkins aims to make another push towards the featherweight finals after narrowly missing out on the title in 2022 against Brendan Loughnane. Jenkins will go head-to-head with the rising contender Jesus Pinedo, who punched his ticket to the playoffs with an impressive first-round knockout victory over the 2022 PFL champion.
On the other side of the featherweight bracket, former PFL champion Movlid Khaybulaev will collide with Gabriel Braga, both vying for a coveted spot in this year’s finals.
In the light heavyweight division, Josh Silveira looks to maintain his momentum as he takes on Ty Flores, while Marthin Hamlet squares off against former UFC fighter Impa Kasanganay. The PFL’s 205-pound division experienced significant changes throughout the season due to several fighters being suspended for prohibited substance use, including the 2022 champion Rob Wilkinson and former UFC fighter Thiago Santos. Now, the remaining four participants will battle it out to secure their place in the finals, with the ultimate prize of $1 million at stake.
