MMA

The PFL has announced its official playoffs schedule, which consists of three events in August.

The events will take place on Aug. 13, 19 and 27. All of the cards will be held at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida and air on ESPN platforms.

The first event features welterweight and lightweight matchups, highlighted by a matchup between Nos. 2 and 3-seeded welterweights Ray Cooper III (22-7-1) and Rory MacDonald (22-7-1).

The Aug. 19 card will be headlined by former lightweight tournament winner and two-time Olympic gold medalist in judo Kayla Harrison. Harrison (10-0) will face Genah Fabian (4-1).

The final playoffs event will consist of featherweight and light heavyweight matchups. That card will be headlined by Brendan Loughnane (21-3) vs. Movlid Khaybulaev (17-0-1).

The PFL is in its third official season, after postponing the 2020 season due to the coronavirus. It is the only major MMA promotion to consist of a “season and playoffs” format.
