The Professional Fighters League traveled to the Xfinity Arena in Everett, Wash., on Saturday, July 29, for the promotion’s second event since rebranding from the World Series of Fighting to the PFL.

The promotion’s top featherweight, Andre Harrison, looked to keep his unblemished record intact when he met Costa Rican Steven Rodriguez, who rode a nine-fight winning streak into the contest.

Yushin Okami, one of the greatest fighters to ever come out of Japan, returned to the cage for the first time this year following a split-decision victory over Paul Bradley at WSOF 34 on New Year’s Eve 2016. The UFC veteran welcomed Jungle Fight middleweight champion Andre Lobato to the PFL ranks.

The main card featured one of the best welterweights in the sport’s history, Jake Shields, who was looking to end his two-fight skid against Danny Davis Jr. UFC veteran Bruno “Carioca” Santos faced off with Rex Harris, who was undefeated under the WSOF banner.

Elsewhere on the card, UFC veterans Mike Kyle and Jared Rosholt met WSOF title challenger Jose Copeland and Bellator alum Nick Rossborough, respectively.

The preliminary card aired live at 6 p.m. ET on Combat Press via Fite TV. The main card began at 9 p.m. ET and airs live on the NBC Sports Network.
