Professional Fighters League (PFL) 6 official results, fighter quotes and photographs

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – This afternoon, the elite fighters slated to compete at PFL6 will take center stage.

The sixth installment of the 2018 PFL regular season will take place tonight, August 16, at Oceans Resort Casino. PFL6 will continue the road to the October playoffs for the league’s welterweight and middleweight fighters. The 11 regular season fights will feature fighters competing with the hope of clinching a berth in the post-season where they will have the chance to claim a piece of the $10 million prize pool and a championship title.

Hawaii’s Ray Cooper III and Ukraine’s Pavlo Kusch will headline PFL6. Both fighters were unexpected winners at PFL3 in July and they are ready to duel to see who will take up the mantle of the favorite heading into the 2018 PFL Playoffs. 

Two-time Olympic gold medalist Kayla Harrison – the only American ever to win gold in Olympic Judo – returns to the cage to face PFL newcomer Jozette Cotton in a special lightweight attraction. 

Shields and Nurmagomedov will be fighting for their playoffs. With zero points on their ledgers, the two pre-season favorites in the welterweight division will need wins, perhaps by stoppage, to make the 2018 PFL Playoffs.

Viewers in the United States will be able to watch the last five fights of the evening on NBC Sports Network beginning at 10 p.m. ET. MMA fans worldwide will be able to view the first fights of the night, beginning at 7 p.m. ET, on Facebook Watch. International viewers will be able to watch the entire card, from start to finish, via Facebook Watch.
