The Professional Fighters League and PFL Fight Night took center stage at the iconic Fight Night charity event in Washington D.C., November 2. Blagoy Ivanov and Lance Palmer headlined the event that benefited educational charity Fight For Children.
The live stream was aired on MyMMANews via FITE TV.
Ivanov, a native of Bulgaria, will square off with heavy-hitting Brazilian Caio Alencar (11-1) in the main event. The last man to hold the WSOF heavyweight title, Ivanov (15-1) has rattled off four consecutive victories including three by stoppage. In his last outing he needed less than two minutes to dispatch Shawn Jordan by TKO. Ivanov will be looking to solidify his top-seed status heading into the PFL’s inaugural season in 2018.

ABOUT FIGHT FOR CHILDREN
The late Joseph E. Robert, Jr. started Fight Night as a way to marshal resources in support of at-risk children in our Nation’s Capital. Fight For Children was formed shortly thereafter with the purpose of providing all children, regardless of their circumstance in life, with an equal shot at a great education.
