HOLLYWOOD, FLORIDA – The Professional Fighters League Playoffs continue tonight with PFL Playoff 3, the final semifinal matchups before the PFL Championships in October. Tonight’s card will feature bouts in the featherweight and light heavyweight divisions. PFL Playoff 3 takes place at The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. FightBook MMA has your complete and official results below.
Headlining tonight’s 10-fight card will be a featherweight semifinal matchup between 2019 PFL Quarterfinalist and number 4-seed Movlid Khaybulaev of Russia and top-seeded Brendan Loughnane of the United Kingdom. Loughnane has been impressive in his first official season with the league, winning both his Regular Season bouts to lock up the top spot Khaybulaev, meanwhile, also won both his regular-season contests, including one against two-time PFL champion Lance Palmer to book a return trip to the postseason.
The other featherweight semifinal pairing takes the co-main event spot, as 2019 semifinalist and number 2-seed Chris Wade takes on number 3-seed Bubba Jenkins. After coming up short in the 2019 postseason, Wade came back with a vengeance, as he was perfect in the 2021 Regular Season to clinch the number 2-seed. Highly-touted newcomer and former world champion Jenkins, meanwhile, was dominant in both his Regular Season contests to finish as the number 3-seed.
Also on the card, the light heavyweight semifinalists take to the cage, as 2019 PFL Champion and number 4-seed Emiliano Sordi meets top-seeded Antonio Carlos Junior, while number 2-seed Cezar Ferreira takes on number 3-seed Marthin Hamlet.
