MMA PFL Play-Offs on eir sport

Join us for LIVE MMA action from 9pm this Thursday night on eir sport 1 as we bring you full coverage of the latest round of PFL play-offs from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

The PFL (Professional Fighter’s League) features elite MMA athletes across six weight classes, including the first-ever 155-pound women’s division.

Fighters earn points based on their performance in the regular season which runs from May to August, with three points for a win and bonus points for knockouts and submissions. Each fighter is then seeded in standings for their weight class based on their points total.

The top eight fighters in each weight class advance to the single-elimination PFL play-offs where fighters must fight twice and win twice in the same night to advance to the finals.

The 2019 PFL finale is set for New Year’s Eve with the winners of each title bout being crowned PFL World Champion in their respective weight class and taking home a $1m purse.

Thursday’s action is focused on the light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions with four quarter finals and two semi-finals up for decision in each division.

Highlights for the evening include Denis Goltsov v Satoshi Ishii in the heavyweight division and Emiliano Sordi v Sigi Pesaleli in the light heavyweight division.
