The Professional Fighters League (PFL), the fastest growing and most innovative sports league, is set for the sixth installment of the PFL Challenger Series at Universal Studios in Orlando, FL. The PFL Challenger Series airs exclusively on Fubo Sports Network, the live, free-to-consumer TV network from sports-first live TV streaming platform fuboTV Inc. (NYSE: FUBO).
The PFL Challenger Series continues Friday with four heavyweight (265 lb.) bouts headlined by former UFC middleweight Bevon Lewis, who will be squaring off with Brazil’s Marcelo Nunes. Lewis (7-3) previously competed at 185 lbs. but after taking a couple years off to bulk up, he’ll be making his return to MMA as a heavyweight as he takes on the grappling ace Nunes (7-1) with a potential PFL contract on the line.
Brazilian standout Giacamo Lemos brings his perfect record to the PFL Challenger Series where he will face off with exciting brawler Billy Swanson. Lemos (7-0) will be making his North American debut while Swanson (4-2) is looking to open some eyes and the door into the PFL. The Tennessee native Swanson has never gone the distance in any of his six fights, preferring to lay everything on the line when he steps into the cage.
Israel’s Adam Keresh (4-0) will take on American Chad Johnson (7-3) and a pair of former collegiate football players, Daiqwon Buckley (1-0) and Jon Cunningham (1-0), will square off to round out the card.
