Brendan Loughnane full PFL 1 Media Day Press Conference

Brendan Loughnane was impressive during the PFL 2019 season and now he’ll look to carry that moment into this season.

In 2019, Loughnane went 2-0 in his first season with the promotion. Of course he missed out on fighting in 2020 as the PFL canceled their season last year due to the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic.

Now in 2021, Loughnane (19-3) kicks off the PFL season when he meets Sheymon Moraes (11-4) on the preliminary card of the event.

Loughnane is considered a rising prospect in the sport. Right now he is on a five-fight winning streak and hold wins in nine of his last 10 fights. In 2019, prior to joining the PFL, Loughnane fought on the Dana White Contender Series, but did not get a contract after defeating Bill Algeo.

On Tuesday, Loughnane spoke to MyMMANews and other media outlets about his fight and the upcoming PFL season. You can hear everything he had to say by watching the video above.
