UPDATE: PFL 2 has wrapped up. Will Brooks earned a unanimous decision victory over Luiz Firmino. Meanwhile, Jason High lost his cool after losing to Efrain Escudero via submission. The problem is, High never tapped and was simply working his way out of a submission. High gave the referee a shove with one hand and knocked over some chairs outside of the cage.
PFL 2 has arrived and MMA News has you covered with live results.
Tonight (June 21), PFL 2 (see weigh-in results here) takes place inside Chicago Theater in Chicago, Illinois. In the main event, Will Brooks takes on Luiz Firmino. Brooks is coming off a disappointing run in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), but feels this is a clean slate. Firmino will look to pull off an upset over a former Bellator champion.
The main event will feature former PFL title challenger Brian Foster taking on fellow UFC veteran Ramsey Nijem. Also set for the main card will be the mixed martial arts debut of judo gold medalist Kayla Harrison. She’ll go toe-to-toe with Brittney Elkin.
