Interview with Tyler Diamond above – Check it out
Tyler Diamond (12-1) recaps his unanimous decision victory over Sung Bin Jo (9-2) at PFL 2021 #1 on Apr. 23. Tyler also talks about his experience competing for PFL, having to quarantine for 17-days, and why he’s hoping to avoid a fight with Lance Palmer next.
“I mean know PFL has the format of winner fighting winner, so with that being said I’d think I would be fighting (Brendan) Loughnane, (Bubba) Jenkins, Movlid (Khaybulaev), or Chris Wade. I feel like all those guys will be with PFL this year, possibly next year. So I’m probably going to fight every single one of them. So just line them up, I’m ready. I can openly admit that Lance Palmer would be the last guy I’d want to fight. Not only just skill-wise, because he’s super good. But because he is my friend. If we have to fight, it is what it is. But I’d much rather it be in the finals.”
