Featherweights will take to the SmartCage for the PFL Challenger Series this coming season.
The event begins January 27 live on Fubo Sports Network from Universal Studios in Florida.
The main event of the featherweight card will feature Brahyan Zurcher and David Evans going head-to-head.
Zurcher, a 26-year-old striker with two professional wins caught the eye of PFL’s President of Fighter Operations Ray Sefo while training at the famed Xtreme Couture Gym in Las Vegas. Standing across from him will be Evans, whose MMA record of five wins includes three stoppages.
“The PFL Challenger Series is where some of the best fighters in the world begin to create their legacies, and we’re excited to introduce the Featherweight division for the 2023 PFL Challenger Series” said PFL President of Fighter Operations, Ray Sefo. “We are proud to present these athletes with a global platform, fighting to achieve PFL Regular Season glory.”
Nathan Kelly takes on Zachary Hicks, Ago Husic faces Gabriel Braga and Vikas Singh Rhul meets Igeu Kabesa.
PFL Challenger Series winners will be determined by a judging panel comprised of combat sports champions and celebrity guests. The PFL is at the forefront of innovation, recently reaching an agreement with Jake Paul, who will compete in, recruit for, and promote the league’s PPV Super Fight division.
