The second half of the Professional Fighters League season kicks off Thursday, and a handful of competitors are looking at must-win scenarios. Some are jockeying for prime playoff position.
The PFL's welterweight and women's lightweight divisions will be in action in Atlantic City, New Jersey, at PFL 4 (5:30 p.m. ET, ESPN+). That means the return of two-time Olympic judo gold medalist Kayla Harrison and PFL 2018 welterweight champion Magomed Magomedkerimov.
The top eight welterweights make the playoffs, while only the top four women's lightweights survive and move on to the postseason. This card is hugely important for all the fighters involved.
