Magomed Magomedkerimov (ranked #3) with an undefeated record in the PFL this season will be fighting American, Ray Cooper III (ranked #1), also undefeated this season. Cooper has been a knockout machine throughout the season, going 4-0 with four stoppages, but Magomedkerimov has never been knocked out in his career. The fight should be a fierce duel with Cooper’s amazing power and Magomedkerimov’s quick footwork and six-inch reach advantage. Fans are sure to be on the edge of their seats as these two battle it out over five rounds to see who is crowned welterweight champion and becomes a MILLIONAIRE.
In the light weight division Rashid Magomedov (ranked #7) will square off with former training partner Natan Schulte of Brazil (ranked #1). Magomedov is the more accomplished fighter over his career and has put up an impressive 22-2-1 record while Schulte enters the fight at 14-3-1. The Russian lightweight is a master level striker who will test himself against his Brazilian opponent who is more of a grappler. In what should be another amazing championship fight, Magomedov had a brilliant chance to become a world champion and a bank a $1 MIlLION.
