Rory MacDonald’s debut fight for the Professional Fighters League is official for Thursday night’s PFL 2.
MacDonald tops this year’s PFL 2 card opposite Curtis Millender, who like “The Red King” has put time in under both the UFC and Bellator MMA banners. Both fighters will be making their promotional debut on the card in Atlantic City, NJ. As will several other participants, including popular UFC fighter and pro wrestler Tom Lawlor.
And while MacDonald headlines the card, last year’s champ, Ray Cooper III, returns as well, set to take on French newcomer Jason Ponet. Light heavyweight champ Emiliano Sordi will meet UFC vet Chris Camozzi, and also at 205lbs, Bellator standout Jordan Young makes his PFL debut.
All fighters hit the scales on Wednesday, and the full line-up made weight for Thursday’s event. Results can be found below. The event takes place live on Thursday, April 29 in Atlantic City, NJ, airing on ESPN2 and ESPN+.
Note — Vinny Magalhaes was taken to hospital during his weight cut, per a report earlier today by MMA Fighting. He has been replaced against Jordan Young by Askar Mozharov, who successfully made weight.
