The card will be topped by a welterweight clash between Serbian kickboxer Andrija Stankovic and American grappler Louis Brewington, who is riding a four-fight amateur winning streak in his professional debut.
The PFL Challenger series takes place at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, and airs exclusively on FuboTV at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT. A winner of the “MMA Debuts” card will be selected to receive a contract to participate in the 2022 PFL season or a development agreement with the promotion.
