The Professional Fighters League light heavyweight division is already undergoing some changes ahead of its second full season.
Sherdog.com has learned from sources close to the situation that Rakim Cleveland will replace Smealinho Rama on the light heavyweight roster and will meet Viktor Nemkov at PFL 3 on June 6. A reason for Rama’s exit is currently unknown, but he is not expected to compete during the upcoming campaign.
The 29-year-old Cleveland competed for PFL last year, posting a 1-1 mark in the regular season before falling to eventual finalist Vinny Magalhaes via submission in the playoffs on Oct. 13. “The Boogeyman” owns a 19-11-1 record with one no contest over the course of a professional career that began in 2010.
