The final regular season event of the Professional Fighters League is here, and it takes place at Revel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey this evening (Thursday, August 30th). It’s the second and final regular season bouts for the welterweight and middleweight divisions, so it’s all about racking up vital points to qualify for the playoffs and the chance to win $1 million.
The main event pits Smealinho Rama against Jamie Abdallah, as both light heavyweights are seeking points to qualify for the playoffs. This card is largely filled with fighters who aren’t in the tournament, and there are a few non-tournament bouts on the prelims. Nevertheless, when this card is over, we will update you with the playoff picture, as the postseason begins in October. The current standings are here.
At 6:30 PM ET/3:30 PM PT, you can watch the live streamed preliminary card on Facebook Live. Viewers outside the United States can watch the entire card on the PFL Facebook page, while US viewers can watch the main card on NBC Sports Network at 9 PM ET/6 PM PT.
