Lightweights Take Stage At PFL Challenger Series Event

Lightweights will compete for a spot in the PFL regular season Friday night.

The PFL Challenger Series returns live on fuboTV from Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. The action kicks off at 9 p.m. ET.

The PFL Challenger Series continues with four lightweight (155 lb.) bouts headlined by Brazilian Bruno Miranda and American Carson Frei.

Miranda (13-3) is a finishing machine who likes to do the bulk of his damage with his kickboxing. He has only seen the final bell three times in 16 pro fights and has eight knockouts to his credit.

Frei (9-4) is the top-ranked lightweight in the Pacific Northwest and will be looking to add the biggest win of his career to his resume when he takes on Miranda.

Talented Bosnian Damir Ferhatbegovic will be taking a giant step up in competition when he squares off with New Zealand’s B.J. Bland on Friday night.

Ferhatbegovic (5-2-1) is a highly touted prospect who fights out of Knoxville, Tennessee. He is a high output striker who pressures his opponents and has flashed knockout power early in his career.

He’ll be facing talented Kiwi Bland (16-10) out of the famed City Kickboxing in Auckland. Bland is making his North American debut.

Canadian Michael Dufort (8-4) will match up against Armenian Arut Pogosjan (9-3) and undefeated Israeli Yanal Ashmoz (6-0) will duel with American Dennis Hugues (7-3) to round out the card.
