Johnny Case will get all of his PFL 7 money and a spot in the PFL playoffs without throwing a punch.
The PFL canceled Case’s (23-6) bout with Jason High today after High (21-8) missed weight for Friday’s event. High came in at 160.2 pounds, or 4.2 pounds over the lightweight non-title limit.
PFL 7 takes place at Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City, N.J. The event’s main card airs live on NBCSN following prelims on Facebook Live.
Case’s spot in the postseason lightweight tournament comes after the promotion awarded him three points. A PFL official told MMAjunkie the promotion decided it was better to cancel the bout altogether than allow a fight with playoff implications to happen “with such a marked advantage for one of the contestants.”
