The last event of the Professional Fighters League season prior to December’s final went down over the weekend, with PFL 10 seeing the middleweight and welterweight finalists determined.

PFL 10 witnessed the final round of quarterfinal and semifinal action for the Professional Fighters League 2018 season. The event went down in Washington, D.C. over the weekend, and saw a number of interesting twists along the way to the middleweight and welterweight finalists being selected. Among them, Rick Story, one of the top contenders at 170lbs, being taken out in the quarterfinals by Handesson Ferreira, who himself would later be eliminated by Ray Cooper III, who also finished Jake Shields on the evening.

Magomed Magomedkerimov, meanwhile, defeated Bojan Veličković to earn the other spot in the welterweight finals. Veličković was actually eliminated in the quarterfinals by Abubakar Nurmagomedov, but when Nurmagomedov was unable to continue due to injury, Veličković was brought back thanks to the lucky loser rule.
