The Professional Fighter's League will wind down its 2023 season on Friday, November 24 from The Anthem in Washington D.C. The main event will air live on ESPN+ Pay Per View with the prelims airing on ESPN+.

The card is headlined by a match-up between 2022 PFL lightweight champion Olivier Aubin-Mercier taking on Clay Collard. The co-main is a heavyweight scrap between Denis Goltsov and Renan Ferreira.

Splitting up the title fights will be a showcase bout between Kayla Harrison and Julia Budd. Harrison will be returning to PFL for the first time since she lost to Larissa Pacheco at the PFL Finals last year.
