Oh PFL in Wales. Also Goltsov vs Bruno on the card, that's a fight I've been wanting to watch for awhile. We were close to seeing that one last season but Delija beat Goltsov in the semis. Speaking of Delija, he's fighting Renan which seems like a really good fight on paper, let's see if Renan can re-buy his hype. Also speaking of Renan, where's Abreu? He should have 6 points (just like Renan and Bruno) given he's coming off two decision wins (3points for each of them). Am I missing something, I never fully understood the PFL tournament rules

Simeon Powell will be on this. I heard pfl wanted dom wooding (yes, that Dom wooding) but he is held back because of contract issues with cage warriors

I like every fight here, only problem is there isn’t as much hype on the 265ers after their awful showing last time around

Oh that's right I kind of forgot about Simeon lol but he'd fit right in given this will be in the UK. Also Dom ******* Wooding would be insane, though I'm kind of glad they didn't bring him in given that PFL doesn't have a bantamweight division, if he loses due to being undersized he might lose a lot of his hype. I kind of like these semi final PFL cards because you get a lot of fun dudes fighting on the undercard and build themselves up for a potential spot next year.

See I was actually thinking they were going to make a 135 division. The fact the offered him makes me think that but also, timur valiev is now a free agent and he was in wsof (PFLs parent company) before this so maybe he goes back to his roots here 👀 PFL has been getting a ton of funding too so maybe after this season they branch out more and add more divisions

Oh **** true completely forgot about Timur getting released. But you're right and I  do hope you are cos bantamweight is one of the best divisions in MMA right now, it'll be great to see PFL get one. There's definitely a lot of regional guys out there too, I can't imagine it'll be too hard. Just hope that if they do sign Timur, they don't make him go up to Featherweight, cos that's what they did after WSOF turned to PFL. Timur's body has completely transitioned to bantamweight now so I don't think it'll work out too well.

that's true tbh, the only other thing is they were planning on getting Dom to move up to featherweight and have him compete there but I doubt they'd do that. I hope they go all out on a bantamweight division though and get a stacked one for next season, the skill shown in that weight class when the fighters show up is insane

Abreu fell victim to the tiebreaker process.

PFL has prioritized number of finishes in the regular season above head-to-head results

Delija vs. Ferreira
Renan Ferreira, TKO, R1
i dont think either guy looked good last fight out clearly ante looked better but he shouldve finished greene or at least tried too renan probably loses a decision here but i do think renan lands the harder shots has a good bjj game if he ends up on his back and can maybe even stuff the takedowns i still think its possible to see renan bounce back here

Denis Goltsov, SUB, R1
another 2 fighters i dont think looked good in their last outings but clearly in the bruno fight it was shown that if you throw shots back he does not like that denis should pressure bruno take him down to the floor and either snatch up a guillotine or armbar

Kudo vs. Jenkins
Bubba Jenkins, DEC
kudo is a power puncher and bubba knows in order to win this fight its takedown takedown takedown i think we either see a quick flush ko from kudo or a slow grind from bubba

Wade vs. Loughnane
Brendan Loughnane, DEC
chris wade always gets so close to winning but just cant seem to claim his 1 million championship i think it happens again i just find brendan to be the better fighter give wade the edge on maybe gas tank or ground game but not even by alot is he better i dont think we see a finish but i think we see a tough close fight maybe a split decision and loughnane gets his hand raised

Those H.W. fights are verry hard to call technic or power? I go with power so Bruno and Renan but not sure of anything here.

If they make a 135pds division wich one will they remove? 145 probably...

We need a PFL Bantamweight division! That being said Timur would probably fight in the featherweight division. The season format lends to fighters going up a weight class. (Shoeface, Omari, Stephens, Bruno)

Wade vs. Loughnane
Chris Wade, DEC
Could go either way... Wade is usually always determined ;oughnane got his eye busted last time.... He might get a hometown decision

Kudo vs. Jenkins
Bubba Jenkins, DEC
Jenkins probably just wrestles his way to win

Goltsov vs. Cappelozza
Denis Goltsov, DEC
Is it me or Cappelozza gave his last fight away... Well you win a million plus probably hard to stay hingry

Delija vs. Ferreira
Ante Delija, DEC
The giant has been exposed... Delija is Croatian tough he probably grabs the win with his foreward pressure

Chris Wade is one of my favorite fighters

Predictions: 2 of 2 Winners, 1 Perfect, 150 Points   |   Tied for 754th

He’s such a weird kind of personality. He carries himself like one of those jock-**********s that boasts about graduating Ivy League school, but he’s simultaneously always an underdog, especially now since he’s almost always smaller than his opponents but despite that he still wants to win a title so bad that it’s hard for me not to route for him
