Professional Fighters League (PFL) 2023 playoffs are finally here!

TONIGHT (Fri., Aug 4, 2023) from inside Boeing Center at Tech Port in San Antonio, Texas, Featherweights and Light Heavyweights 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 Featherweight, Bubba Jenkins, takes on Jesus Pinedo, the man who knocked out 2022 champion Brendan Louganane two months ago (watch highlights), while in the co-main, No. 1-seeded Light Heavyweight, Josh Silveira, takes on Ty Flores.

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!
