The PFL had it's sixth and final event in this year's regular season, and it was as exciting as ever. The PFL's best lightweights and welterweights met in the smart cage, all vying to make it into the final four who would go to the playoffs.

PFL 6 featured 12 fights, headlined by Olivier Aubin-Mercier and Anthony Romero's clash at lightweight. The night saw fast-paced action and delivered stunning knockouts, as well as fights that went the distance.

Of course, only the top four in each division advance to the playoffs. With the action from the 155-pounders and 170-pounders complete, the playoff brackets have been confirmed and the stage is set for the PFL Championships once it returns in August.

Who is going to the 2023 PFL Playoffs?

For the semi-finals of the lightweights, the standings did undergo a slight change from the initial playoff bracket. Now, No. 1-ranked Clay Collard will face off against No. 4-ranked Shane Burgos. On the other side of the bracket, No. 2- ranked Olivier Aubin-Mercier will square up against No. 3's Bruno Miranda. This change was made after the PFL suspended Natan Schulte after they believed his fight with best friend Raush Manfio was unfitting with their contracted standards.

The welterweights have some exciting matches lined up starting with the all-Russian war between No. 1 Magomed Magomedkerimov and No. 4 seed Magomed Umalatov. Carlos Leal is cozy at No. 2 and will square up against the exciting No. 3-ranked Sadibou Sy.

The PFL Playoffs begin on Friday, August 4 and these lightweights and welterweights will fight in New York on August 23.
