It’s been two months since the featherweight and lightweight men kicked off their 2019 Professional Fighters League season in Long Island, N.Y. Defending champions Lance Palmer and Natan Schulte began their march toward repeats. Longtime Brazilian regional circuit staple Luis Rafael Laurentino made a splash. Others, including UFC castoff Jeremy Kennedy didn’t fare so well.
These men, along with a handful of fresh faces, returned in an attempt to secure their positions in the field of eight within their respective divisional playoffs. It was desperation time for the unfortunate ones who possessed zero points. Even those who had scored a prior victory had to push to make the playoffs. It all depended on what happened when the PFL returned to the Ocean Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., which plays host to the entire second set of fights for the organization’s 2019 campaign.
As usual, the action was split between ESPN broadcast outlets for this show. The preliminary card aired live on ESPN+ at 5:30 p.m. ET. The main card began at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
