The Professional Fighters League will make the second stop on its 2019 schedule on Thursday at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York, where the promotion plans to showcase two loaded weight classes: featherweight and lightweight.
The two divisions are rich in talent, with several fighters appearing to have the potential to emerge as a Season 2 winners and instant millionaires. Ahead of the PFL’s latest offering, the time has come to examine each fighter’s strengths and weaknesses while ranking them 1-12, with one being the best bet and 12 being the longest shot.
The featherweights are up first. The 12-man field at 145 pounds features the 2018 winner and runner-up, three former World Series of Fighting titleholders, an undefeated Russian prospect, a streaking veteran, a fighter with one of the best records in MMA, two graduates of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series, two Ultimate Fighting Championship alums and several Brazilin jiu-jitsu black belts. Of all the weight classes in the PFL, featherweight may be the best one of them all.
