Yesterday, undefeated Swedish bantamweight Ali Taleb announced that he signed a multi fight deal with major MMA promotion PFL. And on August 20, the Swede will face Kenji Bortoluzzi on PFL’s third set of playoff fights, that take place in London.

Less than two weeks ago, Ali Taleb knocked out Vincius de Oliveira and claimed the UAE Warriors World Bantamweight Championship. The Swedish fighter is undefeated as pro with a impressive record of 7-0, with just one fight going the distance

The PFL’s London card card is headlined by a women’s lightweight semifinal bout between No. 2 seeded  Kayla Harrison and No. 3 Martina Jindrova. The event also features the second women’s lightweight semifinal where No. 1 ranked Larisa Pacheco takes on No. 4 Olena Kolesnyk.

We will also see two featherweight semifinal playoff fights where No. 1 seeded Chris Wade will face No. 4 Brendan Loughnane, and No. 2 ranked Ryoji Kudo takes on No. 3 Bubba Jenkins.
