The 2021 season is ending, and the finals in six tournaments are tonight.  Each tournament winner receives $1 million.

The prelims start at 4:30 PM ET, with the first title fight at 6 PM ET.  Main card starts at 8 PM ET.

Non-title fights include the second pro MMA bout for multiple world title boxer Claressa Shields.  She won her debut in August against 3-5 Britney Elkin by TKO, but had difficulties on the ground.  Tonight she fights 2-0 Abby Montes.

In other MMA news, meathead trouble-maker Mike Perry's UFC contract expired and Dana declined to resign him.  Perry then signed with BKFC.

Bare knuckle boxing might be a better fit for him.

I missed part of that round resetting my WIFI.  It seems Manfio is up, but I didn't see it
 
2021-10-27 6:51:29 PM  
I missed some, but Manfio probably took that
 
2021-10-27 7:13:01 PM  
Manfio easily won that fight but pfls fight metric said Radzhabov. They should just ditch all of those bogus metrics

Shoeface is the rare fighter from the UFC that came over to pfl and made good.

half hour to kill until the main card

And bad Rap promotions.

All that auto-tune, I feel like I'm in a strip club in 2011

That was pretty bad.  I assume it was a blessing that I couldn't understand most of the words.

Mini-Brock is looking pretty rough these days. Maybe hitting the bottle with Keith Peterson

I wonder if they get any kind of bonuses for finishing the championship fight or it's just a straight million no matter how it goes

wesmon: I wonder if they get any kind of bonuses for finishing the championship fight or it's just a straight million no matter how it goes


I've always wondered if they get the million in one lump sum, or get paid over the period of a few years, since WSOF was in pretty bad financial shape when the PFL bought it up.
 
2021-10-27 8:41:46 PM  
The prelims were pretty damned entertaining. Khaybulaev seems determined to put a stop to that.

Doesn't a group of MLB owners own the PFL now? You've got to wonder about these MMA promotions that bleed money but still attract investors, ONE Championship is another example. Money laundering or tax dodge?

No idea.  I remember when it became PFL, and then there was a cash infusion later from some new investors, but I haven't heard much on the business end in quite a while.  (Other than apparently their ESPN contract is ending with this season, so there's a question as to whether ESPN renews or if they go elsewhere.)

That was not a million dollar performance. Great wrestler, not much of a fighter

one hour into the main card, one fight complete.  This pacing better pick up.

/can we go back in time and dump the wiz Khallfa thing?

I remember the first event of their season the pacing was super quick and awesome. In retrospect that was a trick to lure us in.

Mirko looks like he's still on the juice.

10-8 Cappelozza    if not for the late flurry, I might have entertained a rare 10-7

10-9 Brazil.

I forgot this was happening but in my defense I have been drinking since 5. Hello FFFFers!
