Walsh’s first PFL fight was against Tom Graesser in a lightweight amateur match. It was short-lived, as Walsh delivered some sharp strikes at the start of the first round, causing Graesser to bleed.

But as the 2023 PFL season rapidly approaches, Walsh may be on the brink of becoming an established figure in the world of professional fighting.
