PFL 6: Heavyweight, Light Heavyweight Playoffs Set

The Professional Fighters League made one more stop at the Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City, NJ, on Aug. 8, as the PFL concluded its 2019 regular season by finalizing the heavyweight and light heavyweight brackets.

In the main event, UFC veteran Jared Rosholt, a semifinalist in last year’s heavyweight tournament, managed to stay alive in this year’s by grinding his way to a decision victory over Satoshi Ishii. Both men advance to the tournament with 3 points.

The co-main event saw Vinny Magalhaes, last year’s light heavyweight runner-up, earn his spot in this year’s 205-pound tournament with a first-round submission over Rakim Cleveland.

Top seeds will go to two men who competed on the preliminary card — heavyweight Denis Goltsov, who submitted Kevin Tiller, and light heavyweight Emiliano Sordi, who quickly knocked out Bozigit Ataev.
