PFL 8 weigh-in results – 2018 Playoff season kicks off in New Orleans

The Professional Fighters League (PFL) announced today that all 20 fighters scheduled to compete on the 2018 Playoffs opener made weight, making the 14-bout card official. The top eight finishers in the featherweight and heavyweight divisions will square off at the Earl N. Morial Convention Center in hopes of punching their ticket to the 2018 Championship event set for New Year’s Eve.

Number one seeds Steven Siler and Francimar Barroso tipped the scales under their division limits and will face off with number eight seeds Nazareno Malegarie and Josh Copeland respectively.

The card will begin with a pair of alternate fights before the eight quarterfinal bouts that will determine who will be matched up in the semifinal fights later that evening. The bracketed playoffs will conclude with two fighters in each division headed to New York City for a Dec. 31 showdown with the winner cashing a seven-figure check and being crowned PFL champ.

“I am so pumped up the playoffs are finally here,” said PFL President of Fighting Operations Ray Sefo. “These guys have fought so hard to get to this point and they will be competing in two fights in one night to keep their dreams of becoming PFL champion and earning $1 million alive. If you aren’t excited about this than you’re not an MMA fan.”

PFL8 will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network beginning at 10 p.m. ET. The quarterfinal fights will be streamed on FaceBook Watch beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET.
