PFL standings updates following PFL 4

  PFL standings updates following PFL 4 What do the standings for the six PFL divisions look like after PFL 4? The second half of the 2021 Professional Fighters League (PFL) regular season kicked off on Thursday, June 10, with most of the men's lightweight and featherweight fighters competing in their second matchups. And with tha t, the 2021 PFL playoff brackets are beginning to form. PFL 4 was topped by a special "showcase" bout featuring the professional MMA debut of Claressa Shields, but the event also saw the likes of Clay Collard, Brendan Loughnane, Chris Wade, Bubba Jenkins and Loik Radzhabov lock up spots in the playoffs of their respective weight classes.

Bubba Jenkins took out the reigning PFL featherweight champion right off the bat, and he plans on riding that momentum to the top.

Jenkins (15-4) defeated two-time champ Lance Palmer in April at PFL 1, handing him his first loss in over four years. He meets Bobby Moffett at 2021 PFL 4 on Thursday at Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City, N.J. The main card airs on ESPN2 following prelims on ESPN+.

“My jury is exuding confidence, so you know me: I’m feeling like a million bucks,” Jenkins told reporters at PFL 4 media day. “Apropos that I’ll be fighting soon for a million bucks, I took a pay cut beating the champ. They given him 2 million bucks for doing what I would have did to him, but I’m very excited about the next matchup and the matchup after that and the matchup after that. We’re not gonna look too far ahead, one round at a time, one minute at a time, one punch at a time, but Bobby Moffett’s in trouble.”

Kayla Harrison to headline 2021 PFL 6; Fabricio Werdum to make second appearance

  Kayla Harrison to headline 2021 PFL 6; Fabricio Werdum to make second appearance Reigning PFL champion will take on a Bellator and UFC veteran in her next outing.

In the main event, Harrison (9-0) faces Cindy Dandois (16-6) at Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City, N.J.

Jenkins thinks Palmer is the much tougher out than Moffett (13-5), who hasn’t competed since August 2019. He sees the layoff playing a major factor in Moffett’s performance and just doesn’t see him presenting too much of a challenge.

“I’m not fighting Bobby Moffett like I’m fighting Lance Palmer,” Jenkins said. “The moment I hit Bobby Moffett, he might turn into the runner that Lance Palmer came into, but Bobby Moffett doesn’t have enough skills to keep me up off him like Palmer does. Palmer is a formidable opponent. He was a multiple-time champion, and he’s got so many victories over so many good opponents that I had to be cautious. Even when I said, ‘Oh, I’m gonna knock him out in the second round.’ The moment that I didn’t see that coming, I just understood it to be a mature moment and growing.”

He continued, “When it comes to Bobby Moffett, he’s been off for way too long to deal with a man like me. He’s gotten a short notice to deal with a man like me, the mindset that I have is one that will run him slam over. He can be a wolf, but I train canines.”
