On Friday, June 30, the Professional Fighters League hosted its inaugural event. The promotion, a reinvented version of the World Series of Fighting, traveled to the Daytona International Speedway in Florida. The four-fight event will follow NASCAR’s Coca-Cola Firecracker 250 race.

In the night’s main event, former WSOF welterweight champion Jon Fitch bested fellow UFC veteran Brian Foster. Fitch was coming off a decision win over Jake Shields at WSOF 34 in December. Foster, meanwhile, previously rebounded from a lightweight title defeat by submitting Luiz Firmino at WSOF 33 last October.

Also on the card, Smealinho Rama took on Ronny Markes in a light heavyweight contest, former title challenger João Zeferino met Herman Terrado at welterweight, and lightweights Jason High and Caros Fodor locked horns.

The four-fight event aired live on the NBC Sports Network at 10:30 p.m. ET.
