Swedish welterweight Sadibou Sy just put on a great performance when he defeated Carlos Leal in the first semifinal at PFL Playoffs 2.

In the first round, Leal pressured from start but Sy used his left and right jab with great success. By the end of the round he cut his Brazilian opponent under the left eye. In the second round, Leal cutted of the cage and pressured Sy, but the Swede landed some good shots of his own.

Round three started at a high pace. Leal got a point reduction for a low blow and turned on desperation mode. However, Sy used his great footwork and landed the better shots.

After the three tough rounds, Sy stood as the winner with 29-27 on all judges’ scorecards. With the win he advanced to the promotion’s one million dollar finals later this year.
