The Professional Fighters League kicked off its 2023 post-season on Friday night with PFL 7 in San Antonio, Texas.
The card featured featherweights and light heavyweights in action in the semifinal round, along with a number of showcase bouts.
Topping the event, Bubba Jenkins, a PFL mainstay, was paired up with Jesus Pinedo — who had come in heavy at Thursday’s official weigh-in, throwing a wrench in his playoff plans. On the other side of the bracket, meanwhile, Chris Wade, a longtime rival of Jenkins, was paired up with Brazil’s Gabriel Braga.
In light heavyweight action, Josh Silveira of American Top Team took on Ty Flores in one semifinal, while former UFC middleweight Impa Kasanganay looked to continue his winning ways against Marthin Hamlet. It would certainly be quite the comeback story if Kasanganay made it all the way to the PFL finale.
