PFL Results: Kayla Harrison Dominates, Others Secure Playoff Spot
Kayla Harrison scored another convincing win at PFL 6 Friday night and a handful of others earned their playoff spots.
Kayla Harrison did what Kayla Harrison does, scoring a convincing win in the main event of PFL 6 Friday night live on the ESPN Networks.
Along the way, nine others secured spots in the playoff round of their respective weight class. That round of action begins Friday, August 13 with the lightweight and featherweight final four.
Two key names, though, were denied spots in the playoffs in Anthony Pettis and Lance Palmer. Both needed finishes to advance, and both came up short in the win column. Pettis fell to Raush Manfio and Palmer to Movlid Khaybulaev.
“PFL 6 once again demonstrated that every fight matters. Tonight we saw spectacular performances from world class fighters as they made their final push to the 2021 PFL Playoffs,” said Peter Murray, PFL CEO. “This regular season has been rewarding to watch, and I look forward to seeing the continued action in the Playoffs starting on August 13.”

Let’s go to the Playoffs!”
