The finale of the PFL’s 2023 season will take place with a full slate of championship bouts after all 12 fighters set for action in the six million-dollar championship finals successfully made weight at the official weigh-ins in Washington DC.

The event, which takes place at The Anthem on Black Friday, November 24, is headlined by a battle for the lightweight championship as 2022 champ Olivier Aubin-Mercier takes on Clay Collard, while heavyweight contenders Denis Goltsov and Renan Ferreira will face off for the 2023 heavyweight championship in the night’s co-main event.

All four of those championship contenders made weight, as did the remaining eight title fighters, as the full title fight lineup was made official.

There were two notable weight misses on the card, however. Former welterweight champion Ray Cooper III failed to make weight for his non-title middleweight bout with debuting former UFC contender Derek Brunson, while former featherweight contender Chris Wade came in 2.4 pounds over the non-title limit for his preliminary card bout against rival Bubba Jenkins.

There was also a weight miss at the bottom of the card, where Josh Blyden came in 0.8 pounds over the non-title limit for his featherweight bout with Jesse Stirn.
