Brendan Loughnane looked to continue his march towards a second featherweight title in the PFL on Thursday, June 8 in Atlanta, GA as he took on Jesus Pinedo in the 2023 PFL 4 main event.
Loughnane had stiff competition in the featherweight tournament, with former champ Movlid Khaybulaev, Bubba Jenkins, and others still in the running to make the playoffs.
On the light heavyweight side, the situation was much different. The 205lb division had lost key names including Rob Wilkinson (2022 champ), Thiago Santos, and Krzysztof Jotko following a stint in Nevada in April that saw 10 PFL fighters fail their drug tests.
Still moving on in the regular season was American Top Team standout Josh Silveira, who along with PFL mainstay Marthin Hamlet had six points towards the playoffs.
PFL 4 takes place Thursday at the Overtime Elite Arena in Atlanta, GA — full results can be found below.
