The second season of the Professional Fighters League has reached the playoffs, with fighters at welterweight and women's lightweight competing for spots in the finals.
The main and co-main event will be the semi-final matchups made up from the winners of the welterweight scraps, where those last two victors will advance to the finals. Given there are only four women in the playoffs, the two that emerge victorious will directly advance to the finals on Dec. 31.
Undefeated Olympic gold medalist Kayla Harrison (156) takes on short-notice replacement Bobbi Jo Dalziel (156). Harrison is coming off of a submission win over Morgan Frier in the first round. Dalziel steps in for Genah Fabian who has been pulled for a medical issue.
The event sees last year's welterweight winner Magomed Magomedkerimov (170) take on Chris Curtis (170). The two fought back in July, where Magomedkerimov won by decision. PFL 7 2019 also features the non-tournament debut of Brendan Loughnane (145.8) against Matt Wagy (145.2). Loughnane was famously not signed by the Ultimate Fighting Championship despite a dominant win at Dana White's Contender Series, and is fighting for a potential spot in next year's season.
The main card airs live at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT on ESPN2, with the prelims airing at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ESPN+.
