2023 featherweight PFL Playoff match-ups
No. 1 Bubba Jenkins vs. No. 4 Jesus Pinedo
This just feels like the year of Bubba Jenkins. It's disappointing he won't get a chance to prove himself against Brendan Loughnane but the next best thing will be to defeat the man who knocked him out of the playoffs - Jesus Pinedo. This fight should be easy work for Jenkins.
No. 2 Gabriel Braga vs. No. 3 Movlid Khaybulaev
Movlid Khaybulaev has been parroting the same thing over and over, if he'd been allowed to compete in 2022, he'd be champion. And I'm half a mind to believe him. He's technically going up against the better fighter in Gabriel Braga, but I think if Khaybulaev can get Braga to the ground early, he'll be cashing his ticket to the Finals alongside Jenkins.
