PFL Challenger Series Features Pair Of Female Veterans

The next edition of the PFL Challenger Series will spotlight the women’s flyweight division.

Set from Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, the Week 5 event is headlined by Kaytlin Neil vs. Katherine Corogenes. The entire card airs live on FuboTV.

While Neil vs. Corogenes gets the headline billing, two other matches get veteran fighters of the sport.

Shanna Young will collide with Sandra Lavado and Helen Peralta meets Lisa Maulin.

The 31-year-old Young last fought in November for the UFC, falling to Miranda Maverick. She had four bouts inside the Octagon after competing for both Invicta FC and on Dana White’s Contender Series.

Overall, Young is 8-5 with five of those wins coming by finish. She stopped Gina Mazany and also scored a decision vs. Maiju Suotama.

Along the way, Young won the King of the Cage bantamweight belt and defended it successfully once.

Peralta is a 34-year-old from the Dominican Republic who fought several times for Invicta FC. She is 6-3 overall with a recent win over Aline Pereira at Legacy Fighting Alliance 4.

During seven fights with Invicta, she went 5-2, falling by decision to Poliana Botelho and Kay Hansen. Peralta also showed her toughness with two wins in Bare Knuckle FC back in 2019.
