Vinny Magalhaes took on Rakim Cleveland for the second time and once again he scored a first-round submission.
Having lost his opening PFL season two bout to Emiliano Sordi, Magalhaes needed to make a statement to have a chance at the light heavyweight playoffs. Mission accomplished. In the co-main event of PFL 6, 2019, Magalhaes took on Cleveland in a rematch from their Oct. 2018 showdown. Magalhaes pulled off an armbar to force the tap in the opening frame.
