PFL puts on its final playoff event for the 2023 season, with the welterweights and lightweights looking to secure their spots at the finals. This week, the PFL event takes place a little early with the Smart Cage taking over The Theater at MSG in New York on Wednesday evening.

The main event of the evening will be the lightweight semi-final between Clay Collard and Shane Burgos, with both of them being determined to end the night off in a major way. Before that, it will be another lightweight battle between Olivier Aubin-Mercier and Bruno Miranda, with both yet to be defeated in the Smart Cage in 2023.

The welterweights will witness the showcase bout between Sadibou Sy and Carlos Leal, and that promises heavy-hitting action. Solomon Renfro and Magomed Magomedkerimov will fill up the other welterweight semi-finals as they look to secure their spot at the finals.

The main card curtain-raiser will be an amateur lightweight bout between Biaggio Ali Walsh and Ed Davis. Before that, the prelims are stacked with a middleweight bout, four featherweight bouts.

The 10 fights on this PFL playoffs card will entertain fight fans one final time before the break leading up to the championship finals. The final four fights of the evening will be high-stakes as the athletes inch a bit closer to the coveted gold.
