PFL's 2019 playoff brackets will be locked by the end of Thursday night at PFL 6, as the big boys -- the heavyweights and light heavyweights -- get last licks.
There were some surprises back on June 6 when those divisions competed for the first time, as light heavyweight favorites Vinny Magalhaes and Jordan Johnson suffered losses to Emiliano Sordi and Maxim Grishin, respectively. Jared Rosholt, a top heavyweight, was stopped by Denis Goltsov.
