Round 2 of the Professional Fighters League’s regular season continues with PFL 5 on Thursday with some outstanding South Florida talent across ESPN networks and ESPN streaming platforms.
Jordan Young (11-1) of American Top Team in (South Florida) Coconut Creek battles “Filthy” Tom Lawlor (10-8-0, 1 NC) in a light heavyweight bout. Young is 1-0 but did not fight yet, earning three points and a victory because his opposition could not compete in the first round. He has not fought since 2019. Lawlor, a PFL MMA fighter and Major League Wrestling pro wrestler, is 0-1 in the PFL regular season.
“Shoeface” Antonio Carlos Junior (11-5-0, 1 NC) of American Top Team, too, faces Vinny Magalhaes (19-12-0, 1 NC) in another light heavyweight contest. Carlos Junior is 1-0, beating Lawlor at PFL 2, and Magalhaes is 0-1 in the season.
Both fights are on ESPN+.
