PFL 2 Results, 2023 – Pacheco Struggles to a Victory
The PFL 2 results, 2023 have concluded live from the Theater at Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas, NV. The action aired live on ESPN+ on April 7, 2023. The co-main event stole the show on this one.
PFL 2 Main Event
Larissa Pacheco vs Julia Budd ended up going the distance. Pacheco was pushing the pace early in the fight with some heavy shots. Julia Budd was way more in this fight than anyone expected. She had some success on the ground despite having to fend off some submission attempts.
During the fight Kayla Harrison even suggested Larissa may be feeling the weight cut despite remaining competitive. However, at the end of the fight, Larissa Pacheco began to rain bombs with heavy body shots while in guard.
Finally, the fight went to the judges where Larissa Pacheco picked up the win and 3 points with her decision victory. The screen shot below, courtesy of the PFL, shows how undoubtedly close this bout actually was.
PFL 2 Co-main Event
Bruno Cappelozza vs Matheus Scheffel was indeed a brief bout. The slightly favored Burno Cappeloza emphatically took the fight with a well placed overhand right which sat Matheus Scheffel down and Cappelozza was all over him. In the end it was Cappelozza winning by 1st round KO and banking 6pts in the PFL 2023 tournament.
Ali Walsh had an impressive PFL debut and showed some impressive boxing and later good wrestling defense for an amateur. Being the grandson of Muhammad Ali, pressure is evidently a way of life for this fighter. Undoubtedly a promising future, and anticipation to see his development as a fighter remains large.
