Rob Wilkinson has found success no matter what discipline he’s competed in – boxing, kickboxing, or MMA. The FactoryX Muay Thai product from Tasmania, who comes into tonight with 17 wins in his 20 professional MMA fights, won a championship in kickboxing, but perhaps his greatest achievement came in 2022. It was in the 2022 PFL season where he ran through Bruce Souto, Viktor Pesta, Delan Monte and Omari Akhmedov to capture that year’s Light Heavyweight Championship. Now, Wilkinson is back and looks to become one of just a handful of fighters to be two-time PFL champions.


A regional champion at both middleweight and light heavyweight, Tom Breese has faced some notable talent in his career, including Sean Strickland, Brendan Allen and Omari Akhmedov. The Brazilian jiu-jitsu specialist enters tonight with an 18-4 record, with 13 victories coming by submission. Breese made his PFL debut at the 2023 PFL Europe Championships in December, scoring a first-round submission of Cleiton Silva.
