PFL Championships: What To Expect On Night Of Champions

Six tournament finales highlighted by Kayla Harrison, the return of Claressa Shields and more are set for PFL Championships.

The PFL (Professional Fighters League) will bring out the big guns for the epic 2021 finale.

PFL 10, better known as PFL Championships, are scheduled for October 27 from Hollywood in Florida.

The event airs live on ESPN2 and ESPN+ with six tournament finales headlined by Kayla Harrison.

Harrison will meet Taylor Guardado in the women’s lightweight finale. The event also features Claressa Shields back in action.

Shields is a multi-division boxing world champion and gold medalist. She will face Abigial Montes in the lightweight division.

While we are still a ways off from Harrison – also an Olympian – vs. Shields, it is fun to think about it.

Harrison has completely dominated her way to an unbeaten record. She should have no trouble adding another title to her waist and $1 million to her bank account.

The rest of the card features Ray Cooper III vs. Magomed Magomedkerimov. Both men have won tournament titles previously and know what it takes.

Cooper knocked off Rory MacDonald and has momentum from that performance going for him.

Movlid Khaybulaev meets Chris Wade in the featherweight finale. Ante Delija opens the main card vs. Bruno Cappelozza in the heavyweight final.

Antonio Carlos Junior-Marthin Hamlet meet in the light heavyweight division with Loik Radzhabov-Raush Manfio battling at lightweight.

Julia Budd, a former champion nad one of the most accomplished female fighters in the world, makes her promotional debut vs. Kaitlin Young. Don Madge-Nathan Williams open the event.
