PFL 5 LIVE on eir sport this Thursday


There's more LIVE MMA action this Thursday night on eir sport 1 with all ten bouts from PFL 5 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Coverage starts from 10.30pm

If last week's PFL 4 is anything to go by, fight fans are in for a real treat once again as we head to the Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City this Thursday (June 17th). 

Focusing on welterweight and light heavyweight, the  card is co-headlined by welterweight bouts Rory 'Red King' MacDonald v Gleison Tibau and Ray Cooper III v Nikolay Aleksakhin.

A former UFC title contender, MacDonald made a successful debut with the PFL in April when he beat Curtis Millender in the first round, while Tibau comes in off the back of a defeat to Joao Zeferino following back-to-back wins.

The other co-headliner sees 2019 PFL champion Ray Cooper look to take another step towards the play-offs with victory over Nikolai Aleksakhin. 

The full card is: 

Rory MacDonald v Gleison Tibau (W)

Ray Cooper III v Nikolai Aleksakhin (W)

Emiliano Sordi v Dan Spohn (LHW)

Cezar Ferreira v Chris Camozzi (LHW)

Antonio Carlos Jr v Vinny Magalhaes (LHW)
