Professional Fighters League (PFL) Fourth Regular Season Delivers Intense MMA Action and Exciting Finishes To Fans Worldwide as Fighters Clinch Playoff Spots

PFL 4 from the Nassau Colosseum in Long Island, NY

UNIONDALE, N.Y.– Professional Fighters League (PFL) hosted PFL4 at NYCB LIVE, the home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Long Island, NY — the home of many passionate mixed martial arts fans. PFL4 was a high-stakes fight night on the road to the playoffs as fighters battled to clinch a spot in the postseason line-up. With a shot at the $10 million prize pool on the line, as combatants looked for early and decisive wins. For the official results and fighter winner quotes you can head over here.

After controlling his opponent for the first two rounds, Lance Palmer forced Juma Tuerxun to tap after locking in a neck crank at 4:34 of the third round. Palmer’s victory earns him four points on the night leaving him with nine points overall and positioning him well for one of the top seeds in the playoffs.

Andre Harrison turned in a dominating performance in front of the hometown crowd, controlling Nazareno Melagarie all three rounds, earning him a unanimous decision victory. With an additional three points, Harrison clinches a spot in the playoffs as he continues his quest to become the PFL 2018 Champion and earning $1 million dollars.

Throughout the first half of the regular season, PFL fighters have demonstrated that every second counts in the cage, and PFL4 was no different. Steven Siler took down Alexandre Almeida within before the minute-mark in the first round, clinching the number one seed in the featherweight division, and both Philipe Lins and Kelvin Tiller prevailed in their second rounds after their opponents gained the early advantage, earning spots in the playoffs.

“Our true sport MMA format has consistently delivered make-or-break action, and our second line-up of featherweight and heavyweight fighters did not disappoint,” said Carlos Silva, League President of the PFL. “Every round matters in the PFL and our fighters always enter the cage with a hunger to prove themselves and clinch a spot in the December 31st championship event. We can expect the same level of intensity at PFL5 on August 2nd, when we will be back on Long Island.”
