Friday’s stacked 2023 PFL Championship card features six title fight with $6 million on the line.
Last year’s welterweight champion Sadibou Sy and 2018’s champion Magomed Magomedkerimov will square off in a five-rounder on the main card.

“I don’t see the fight going more than two or three rounds, that’s my gut feeling. I will always look for a finish without compromising with getting the win,” Sy recently told Frontkick about his opponent.
