PFL is making a hilariously poor choice here in trying to headline their biggest event of the year with a 25-1 favorite who will likely leave the promotion after this easy win for another million.
Did they really think they could create another Rondaesque cash cow by inventing a weight class above a dead weight class UFC can’t even rank fifteen women in?
Also odd they put Claressa Shields on the main card in her second MMA fight while they put their million dollar finals on the prelims.
WFW and WLW are barely weight classes in MMA.
Otherwise, the card looks good.
