2022 PFL World Championship Weigh-In Results

The Professional Fighter’s League will hold this year’s championship on their first Pay-Per-View for ESPN+ this Friday.

The event will have six world title fights, with the winners receiving one million dollars. The PFL World Championship main event will have the Women’s Lightweight Champion Kayla Harrison fight Larissa Pacheco for the third time. Harrison defeated Pacheco in both encounters and believes she’ll do it again.

Pacheco aims to end Harrison’s undefeated record and take home one million dollars. She is on a five-fight win streak and has finished all five opponents by knockout. Going into this fight, Pacheco spoke with our Curtis Calhoun about her upcoming battle with Harrison, believing her opponent had become more arrogant than when they first fought.

While Harrison is considered a favorite, Pacheco has the power to shock fans with a win this Friday.

The co-main event features a PFL Featherweight Championship fight between Bubba Jenkins and Brendan Loughnane. Both fighters are coming into the PFL World Championship on a three-fight win streak and hope to defeat the other to earn one of their biggest career wins.
