PFL 4 Predictions: Will Brendan Loughnane Roll Again?


The PFL returns this Thursday night with PFL 4 from the Overtime Elite Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. The card has taken on some new faces, but Brendan Loughnane remains in the main event.

PFL 4: Will Anyone Challenge Brendan Loughnane?

Reigning PFL featherweight champion Brendan Loughnane looks to punch his ticket back into the semifinals this Thursday night at PFL 4.

Loughnane headlines the ESPN event from the Overtime Elite Arena in Atlanta, Georgia against Jesus Pinedo.

Following a second round finish in his opening season bout, Loughnane controls his own fate in the race to qualify for a shot at $1 million. Pinedo, meanwhile, is seeking his first win.

The main card also features a pair of featherweight fights that will see Movlid Khaybulaev face Tyler Diamond and Bubba Jenkins battle Sung Bin Jo.

Light heavyweights Marthin Hamlet and Sam Kei, along with Josh Silveira and Delan Monte round out the main card, which also streams on ESPN+.

Brendan Loughnane Vs. Jesus Pinedo

Since a split decision loss in 2021 to Movlid Khaybulaev, Brendan Loughnane has been a man on a mission. He rolled through the 2022 season, downing Bubba Jenkins to capture gold.

Earlier this year, Loughnane finished Marlon Moraes in the second round to improve to 27-4 overall. Jesus Pinedo does not look like the fighter to stop that run right now.

Prediction: Brendan Loughnane via first round TKO

Movlid Khaybulaev Vs. Tyler Diamond

After winning gold in 2021, Movlid Khaybulaev was unable to defend his title last year, watching as Brendan Loughnane was the winner. Now, fresh off a victory over Ryoji Kudo, the former champion is looking as good as ever.

Tyler Diamond is a formidable foe, but with the hope of finally seeing Loughnane again closer by the day, look for Khaybulaev to extinguish the Diamond.

Prediction: Movlid Khaybulaev via unanimous decision

Marthin Hamlet Vs. Sam Kei

The light heavyweight division has been turned upside down, and Marthin Hamlet now has a big-time opportunity. He will need to be focused in on Sam Kei, but with a win, he is on to the next round.

Prediction: Marthin Hamlet via first round TKO

Bubba Jenkins Vs. Sung Bin Jo

A former champion outside PFL, Bubba Jenkins has been right there when it comes to capturing gold in the featherweight division. He should have no trouble with Sung Bin Jo as he looks to reach the final four once more.

Prediction: Bubba Jenkins via unanimous decision

Josh Silveira Vs. Delan Monte

This is one of the tougher main card bouts to figure out, as both Josh Silveira and Delan Monte have shown they can get the job done. But after his first round finish earlier this year, Silveira should be set to make it 2-for-2 and move into the semifinals.

Prediction: Josh Silveira via third round TKO
