The Professional Fighters League (PFL) has announced the card for its second Playoff event on Thursday, August 19 to be simulcast on ESPN and ESPN+. Fighters across the women’s lightweight and men’s heavyweight divisions will look to make it out of the final four and move one step closer to becoming a PFL champion and capturing $1 million in prize money.

“PFL’s second Playoff event on Thursday August 19 will feature an incredible and action-packed card that only the PFL can deliver to the 550 million MMA fans worldwide,” said PFL CEO Peter Murray. “These athletes are putting it all on the line to secure a spot in the PFL Championship. Nothing in sports compares to the intensity of a must-win scenario and each of these fights are must-win.”

Kayla Harrison, the 2019 PFL women’s lightweight world champion, will be looking to secure her spot in another PFL championship bout when she takes on the incredibly talented Genah Fabian in the main event. Top-seeded heavyweight Bruno Cappelozza will look to continue his knockout streak and to move on to the championship fight as he duels the hard-hitting Jamelle Jones in a must-see bout.

The women’s lightweight division will also see #1 seed Larissa Pacheco square off against talented up-and-comer Taylor Guardado, while highly regarded Russian Denis Goltsov will stare across the Smartcage at Croatian slugger Ante Delija.

Rounding out the stacked card, heavyweight Renan Ferreira returns to action against English newcomer Stuart Austin and women’s MMA pioneer Kaitlin Young clashes with six-time world Sambo champion Marina Mokhnatkina. Also, French Olympic wrestler Cynthia Vescan will make her MMA debut against Amanda Leve to round out the card.

The final PFL Championship spots will be up for grabs when contenders from the featherweight and light heavyweight divisions compete at the third playoff event on Aug. 27 in primetime on ESPN2 and ESPN+. 

In the playoffs, fighters compete to advance to the 2021 PFL World Championship, the biggest night in MMA – with six title fights in one night, the winner of each will earn $1 million.
