The first event for the newly founded PFL "regular season" starts tomorrow. It appears as if PFL will be doing a Thursday night fights type deal.
Here is a breakdown of the card for you slack jawwwwed casual fggggggts.
6-9 p.m. on the PFL facebook page they will be streaming 7 fights from the feathweight and heavyweight regular season matchups. Interesting fights include

Lance Palmer (12-3) vs Bekublat Magomedov (19-1)
Andre Harrison (17-0) vs Juma Tuerxen (20-5-1)
After I get off work tomorrow I will watch this card. If anyone wants to join feel free to come to chat. Should be a fun night of fights
Personally I am not so over the moon on the PFL "regular season" set up. I think its overly ambitious. Giving each guy in every division at least 3 fights and then ranking them for a tournament based on how they did sounds great in theory, but contract issues, injuries, commission bs, no way it goes as smoothly as they say it will.
I just want to watch some good fights on Thursday nights so really I could care less about the league set up. PFL signed some damn good featherweight talent and tomorrow will showcase this. The Heavyweight talent is so so.
See you all tomorrow!
