The PFL’s end-of-season finale is finally upon us, with six world champions set to be crowned at the 2022 PFL World Championship in New York City.
On Friday, November 25, the finalists in each of the PFL’s six weight classes will face off for the 2022 world titles in their respective divisions, with each winner banking $1 million into the bargain.
The event, which takes place at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden, will be headlined by a women’s lightweight final trilogy bout between two-time champion Kayla Harrison and former 2019 runner-up Larissa Pacheco, while featherweights Brendan Loughnane and Bubba Jenkins, both losing semi-finalists in 2021, will vie for the 145-pound championship in the co-main event.
Croatia meets Brazil for the heavyweight title, as Ante Delija faces Matheus Scheffel, while Scotland’s Stevie Ray will look to cap off a remarkable career renaissance when he faces “The Canadian Gangster” Olivier Aubin-Mercier for the lightweight title.
Sweden’s Sadibou Sy and semi-final super-sub Dilano Taylor will do battle for the welterweight championship, while, in the first title bout of the night, light heavyweights Omari Akhmedov and Rob Wilkinson will face off in a Russia vs. Australia bout.
Ahead of fight night in New York City, the PFL’s cameras have been following the stars of the fight card as they make their final preparations ahead of a huge night in The Big Apple.
As described on the PFL’s official YouTube channel, on Episode 2: “Brendan Loughnane trains on Long Island at LAW MMA. Kayla Harrison visits the salon for her yearly championship trim. Larissa Pacheco focuses on her grappling at American Top Team, Atlanta. Bubba Jenkins goes 5 hard rounds.”
