PFL: Brendan Loughnane to headline Atlanta card as Brit sets sights on second world title

British MMA star Brendan Loughnane will return to action in June when he takes on Jesus Pinedo.

The Professional Fighters League announced the featherweight and light-heavyweight card for PFL Regular Season Atlanta, taking place on Thursday, June 8 at Overtime Elite Arena. 

The 2022 PFL featherweight world champion Brendan Loughnane, and current division leader, headlines the card against Jesus Pinedo.
Loughnane will look to secure a berth in the 2023 PFL Playoffs and move a step closer to his second PFL world championship.
In the co-main event, 2022 PFL light-heavyweight World Champion "Razor" Robert Wilkinson returns to the PFL SmartCage against Will Fleury.
Wilkinson currently sits in a third-place tie in the light-heavyweight standings. The Australian will look for a finish to secure a Playoff appearance and move one step closer to the $1 million world championship prize.
In further light-heavyweight action, Thiago Santos is in a must win situation against Mohammad Fakhreddine. "Marreta" will need a finish to keep his million-dollar dream alive.
The 2021 PFL featherweight champion Movlid Khaybulaev steps back into the PFL SmartCage looking to remain unbeaten. The Dagestan native, Khaybulaev, will take on Daniel Torres.
Marthin Hamlet, who currently sits atop the light-heavyweight standings, matches up with Sam Kei with a Playoff berth on the line.
"The Professional Fighters League is set to return to 2023 Regular Season action at Overtime Elite Arena in Atlanta, GA, on Thursday, June 8 with featherweights and light-heavyweights making their final push for the 2023 PFL Playoffs," said PFL CEO Peter Murray.
"We look forward to an action-packed night of fights live on ESPN and ESPN+ in the U.S., with international distribution to 160 countries globally as the best athletes in the world look to take one step closer to a PFL world title and $1million prize."
"The first half of the 2023 PFL Regular Season provided action that can only take place in the PFL's unique season format," said PFL President of Fighter Operations, Ray Sefo.
"We look forward to watching the elite PFL athletes make their final attempt towards securing a berth in the PFL Playoffs."
