PFL 4 Takes Place June 8 Live On ESPN
In sports, every opportunity presented to you could be the greatest of your life. That is definitely true for a handful of fighters set to compete when PFL returns in June.
For fighters such as Ty Flores, Tyler Diamond, Gabriel Braga, Taylor Johnson, Andrew Sanchez, Impa Kasanganay and Tim Caron, that could never be more true.
All of those fighters are either taking on new opponents or joining the season fresh in hopes of securing that biggest prize in mixed martial arts.
Light Heavyweight Division Gets Overhaul
Flores, Kasangany, Caron, Sanchez and Johnson will all be competing in the light heavyweight division, with Flores getting reigning champion Rob Wilkinson in the co-main event.
A win by Flores would definitely serve notice to the rest of the division and ranks, while also securing him a spot in the next round thanks to his win earlier this season.
The other four are all in their first action, so they will need to make an impact to move on. Kasanganay faces Caron and Sanchez gets Johnson on the prelims.
Kasangany has won three straight including an April win at PFL 1, while Sanchez is a veteran of the sport having fought on The Ultimate Fighter and for the UFC for several years.
New Faces In The Featherweight Ranks
The other “newcomers” to the season will compete at featherweight in Diamond and Braga. Diamond faces off against Movlid Khaybulaev on the main card, while Braga gets Marlon Moraes on the prelims.
Much like Flores, those are both big-time opportunities for each fighter.
Khaybulaev won the 2021 PFL featherweight title before missing last year, while Moraes is a former champion seeking his first win of the season after a loss.
Braga picked up a win during the first half and Torres suffered a defeat, so both have plenty of fight for.
