The second round of the playoffs has concluded on Saturday, August 13, 2022 from the Hulu Theatre in New York.
One of the biggest upsets happened when the main event fighters took to the stage and Taylor secured a 1st round TKO over the favored Rory MacDonald. The results will move Taylor forward to face Sadibou Sy, who defeated Carlos Leal on the same card.
The co-main event, Delija vs Ferreira, ended in similar fashion. The first round TKO Delija put on Ferreira will set him up to face fellow PFL 8 2022 contestant Matheus Scheffel who dispatched Juan Adams in the third round via TKO.
Here’s a video, courtesy of the PFL, with the highlights of the event. Below the highlight video are the remaining conclusions of the PFL 8 2022 results.
