Professional Fighters League (PFL) official weigh-in results for PFL4
UNIONDALE, N.Y.– This afternoon, the elite fighters slated to compete in PFL4 weighed-in before competing in Thursday nightâ€™s highly-anticipated fights. The fourth event of PFLâ€™s 2018 regular season will take place tomorrow, July 19, at NYCB LIVE, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. PFL4 marks the beginning of the road to the playoffs in October for the leagueâ€™s featherweight and heavyweight fighters. 20 fighters will compete on the PFL4 card to remain in the running to claim their share of the $10 million prize pool and a championship title.
Eager MMA fans have a stacked 10-bout card to look forward to. Lance Palmer will be entering the cage again after defeating his last opponent at PFL1 in the second round. Palmer will take on Juma Tuerxun, who had an exciting three-round match against NY native Andre Harrison at PFL1. Harrison will also be featured in the PFL4 line-up, squaring off against Nazareno Malegarie.
â€śWeâ€™ve delivered explosive action in our first three regular season events, and I expect the energy in the cage to continue tomorrow night for our fans in the Coliseum and watching worldwide,â€ť said Carlos Silva, League President of PFL. â€śThese fighters are going to be all-in and looking for early and decisive victories. After all, this is their chance to stay in the hunt for a playoff spot and keep their championship dreams alive.â€ť
The featherweight and heavyweight PFL fighters are all in the running to earn a place in PFLâ€™s debut season â€świn-or-go-homeâ€ť playoffs and the December 31 championship event where $10 million will be awardedâ€”the largest prize pool in MMA history. Each champion in PFLâ€™s six weight classes will go home with the title and over $1 million in post-season prize money.
