Will Rory MacDonald continue to live up to the hype as the PFL’s biggest signing? Will fellow welterweight Ray Cooper III show that, after winning the 2019 season championship, this is his division? Can 2019 light heavyweight champ Emiliano Sordi even qualify for this summer’s playoffs?
These are a few of the questions that should be answered Thursday night at PFL 5, which offers the promotion’s 170- and 205-pound fighters their last opportunity to claim one of four playoff spots in each division and continue their chase for a $1 million championship.
The 10-fight card takes place at Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey, with live coverage on ESPN+ starting at 5:30 p.m. ET, followed by the last four fights on the card on ESPN2 at 9 p.m.
Follow along for a fight-by-fight recap of the evening’s action.
