PFL Championships Weigh-in Results: All Finalists Hit Marks for Title Bouts

By Tristen Critchfield Oct 26, 2021

The Professional Fighters League Championships will proceed as planned, as all 12 athletes set to compete in title bouts made weight without issue.

The card will be headlined by a women’s lightweight championship bout between Kayla Harrison and Taylor Guardado. Harrison tipped the scales at 153.8 pounds, while Guardado checked in at 154.4 pounds. In the co-main event, Ray Cooper III (169.8) will attempt to repeat as welterweight champion against Magomed Magomedkerimov (170). All of the undercard competitors made weight without issue, as well.

The PFL Championships take place at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Fla., on Wednesday night. The main card airs on ESPN2 and ESPN+ beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, while the preliminary card streams on ESPN+ beginning at 4:30 p.m. ET/2:30 p.m. PT. The winners of the championship bouts will receive $1 million payouts.

Harrison will attempt to capture his second PFL title after winning the promotion’s 2019 championship. The two-time Olympic gold medalist is 11-0 as a professional and earned finishes against Mariana Morais, Cindy Dandois and Genah Fabian thus far during the 2021 PFL season.

Guardado entered the PFL campaign with an 0-1 professional mark. After taking unanimous verdicts against Helena Kolesnyk and Laura Sanchez during the regular season, the Xtreme Couture respresentative earned a split-decision victory over Morais in the playoffs to advance to a showdown with Harrison.
