PFL Challenger Series Sets Lightweight Fight Card

Lightweights will take to the action later this year when the PFL Challenger Series returns on Fubo Sports Network.

Lightweights will take to the PFL Challenger Series in 2023, as fighters battle for a spot in the regular season.

The series begins January 27 and runs through March, airing live on Fubo Sports Network and FuboTV.

The main event of the card will see Elvin Espinoza and Damir Ferhatbegovic match up in the PFL SmartCage. Espinoza, hailing from Nicaragua, holds a 2-0 record with the PFL along with five first-round stoppages to his name. He currently trains out of Miami and boasts an 86% finish rate, with three knockouts and three submissions.

Across the cage will be Ferhatbegovic who is coming off a victory in last season’s PFL Challenger Series with a first-round knockout. The “Bosnian Barn Cat” has an undefeated record and is a Valor Fighting Championship Lightweight champion. 

“As the PFL enters 2023, we are excited to announce our Lightweight division for the 2023 PFL Challenger Series being held live from Universal Studios Florida,” said PFL President of Fighter Operations, Ray Sefo.

Mandel Sousa vs. Paulo Henrique, Antonio Caruso vs. Anthony Romero and Charlie Decca vs. Jose Aguayo are other planned bouts.
