The final Professional Fighters League (PFL) 2023 playoffs card is here!

TONIGHT (Weds., Aug. 23, 2023) from inside The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City, Welterweight and Lightweights will throwdown for a spot in the finals in hopes of winning $1 million at the end of the season (sometime later this year).

Indeed, it is win or go home.

In the main event, No. 1-seeded party favor, Clay Collard, takes on former UFC fighter and No. 4-ranked Shane Burgos in what should be a banger fight. In the co-main, 2022 PFL Lightweight champion, Olivier Aubin-Mercier, takes on No. 3-seeded Bruno Miranda.

Many readers check in before, during and after the fights to share their thoughts on all of the action, which will begin at 6:30 p.m. ET with “Prelims” on ESPN+ and then transition to ESPN/ESPN+ at 9 p.m. ET for main card action. Feel free to leave a comment (or several) about the bouts and chat with all the other Maniacs during the show — it’s always a lot of fun!
