On Friday, the inaugural season of the Professional Fighters League sees an historic moment with the start of its playoffs.
The PFL debuted earlier this year with a regular season that had fighters competing twice – and earning points to try to qualify for the postseason. Fighters in each of six weight classes then could make their way into eight-man fields, and the winner of each division will get $1 million guaranteed.
At PFL 8, the opening round of the playoffs gets underway in the heavyweight and featherweight divisions. After the first four fights in each class, the winners then will have to fight a second time in the semifinals to make it to the finals, which will take place on New Year’s Eve in New York City.
PFL 8 takes place Friday at Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. The main card airs on NBCSN following two hours of quarterfinal fights on Facebook Watch.
Ahead of the event, check out a preview of the heavyweight division in the video above. The top seed is Francimar Barroso (20-7), who takes on No. 8 seed Josh Copeland (17-5). Plus, No. 2 Kelvin Tiller (9-1) takes on No. 7 Jared Rosholt (16-4); No. 3 Philipe Lins (11-3) meets No. 6 Caio Alencar (12-3); and No. 4 Jack May (10-4) fights No. 5 Alex Nicholson (12-6).
