Friday (5/1) at 12:00pm ET on PFL’s Twitter and Instagram
The Professional Fighters League launched a new weekly MMA original content series, MMA at Home, powered by Geico. Every Friday at Noon ET, PFL president and combat sports veteran Ray Sefo will introduce a foundational move in MMA. And a PFL fighter who excels at it. They will then challenge fans at home to replicate the move for a chance to win PFL swag. Previous episodes featured welterweight Sadibou Sy and his patented head kick; and two-time champion Lance Palmer showcasing the ground game that propelled him to back-to-back featherweight titles and a 10-fight win streak.
This week’s episode features Ray Cooper III demonstrating an overhand right punch. A signature move of the “Bradda” man that helped him secure the 2019 welterweight championship. Known for his aggressive style, the Hawaiian KO artist has accumulated 14 knockout victories (20-7-1) in his career. Making him one of the most feared fighters to step inside the cage.
