PFL 1 Results: Harrison Bests Tuerxun
The Professional Fighters League debuts its new format tonight, inside the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden. In the main event, PFL featherweight champion Andre Harrison will square off against UFC veteran Jumabieke Tuerxun in a featherweight contest. Former WSOF featherweight champion Lance Palmer meets Bekbulat Magomedov in the co-main event.
Harrison would be able to withstand Tuerxun on Thursday night inside Madison Square Garden, as he would take a unanimous decision victory in the PFL 1 main event.
While the main card would only feature one knockout finish, it was a highlight finish for Alex Nicholson as would land a highlight reel knee on Jake Heun.
