The Professional Fighters League (PFL), the fastest growing and most innovative sports league, is set for the seventh installment of the PFL Challenger Series. The slate of eight events is being held at Universal Studios in Orlando, FL. The PFL Challenger Series is airing exclusively on Fubo Sports Network, the live, free-to-consumer TV network from sports-first live TV streaming platform fuboTV Inc. (NYSE: FUBO).
The PFL Challenger Series continues Friday with 10 highly regarded prospects making their professional debuts in five action-packed bouts. Serbian kickboxer Andrija Stankovic recently moved to Florida to train at Sanford MMA as he prepares to make the transition to MMA. He’ll put that training to the test when he takes on a very tough and experienced amateur in Louis Brewington.
Christian Turner is a hot prospect out of ATT Atlanta and his coach, former UFC vet Roan “Jucao” Carneiro, is extremely high on the 20-year-old fighter. He’s undefeated as an amateur and will be looking to kick his pro career off in style when he takes on gifted Cuban Chayanne Serrano.
Undefeated Alexei Pergande is another talented up-and-comer looking to make a splash in his debut. “The Bosnian Barncat” is the best prospect in Tennessee and he’ll square off with a gritty Joe Hamm as the two get down to business in hopes of securing a PFL contract.
Georgia’s Jaylon McDaneil will match up against Washington’s Daeri Alderman while Las Vegas’s Santino Zurita faces off with Tennessee’s Rakim Talley to round out the slate.
