Impa Kasanganay’s bid for a repeat is in full effect.

The Kill Cliff FC standout secured the top seed in the Professional Fighters League light heavyweight playoffs with a second-round doctor stoppage victory against 2023 PFL Europe kingpin Jakob Nedoh at PFL 5 on Friday night at the Huntsman Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.

“I told myself this: How would I fight if I was leading Heaven’s armies? God put me here and God’s gonna take me out of here,” Kasanganay said. “No other man will. He’s a champion; you’ve got to take it from him.”

After besting Joshua Silveira to win the PFL title a year ago, Kasangany will get a rematch with the fourth-seeded “Coninha” in the light heavyweight semifinals on Aug. 16 at Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida. On the other side of the 205-pound bracket, 2022 champion Rob Wilkson will collide with Bellator veteran Dovletdzhan Yagshimuradov.

Meanwhile, ex-Bellator champ Brent Primus made the biggest statement at lightweight on Friday, as he vanquished Solomon Renfro with a third-round rear-naked choke to clinch the No. 1 spot at 155 pounds. He’ll meet No. 4 seed and 2023 finalist Clay Collard in one semifinal, while No. 2 Gadzhi Rabadanov and No. 3 Michael Dufort will square off in the other semifinal matchup.

“Nothing better in life. I love PFL, the platform,” Primus said. “This is for my family. I’m going to Hollywood, Florida, for that $1 million. I will win it. Let’s go.”

While the PFL postseason is taking shape, there is one more order of business at hand. Next week, attention will turn to the featherweight and welterweight divisions when PFL 6 heads to the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, for the final event of the regular season.
