PFL Challenger Series Week 1 Results, 2023 Contract Winner Thad Jean

Thad Jean announced winner of PFL week 1 Challenger series.

A couple of changeups but the PFL Challenger Series week 1 results are in for the 2023 season. The event aired January 27, 2023 live from Universal Studios, Orlando, FL on Fubo Sports Network.

Some issues occured due to a couple of change ups in the roster. It appears Mostafa Rashed Neda was replaced in his bout against Nick Alley, by Kendley St Louis. St Louis would take advantage of the opportunity and tapped out Alley in round two.

Also, Quemuel Ottoni was injured and forced to withdrawal from his bout with Jozef Wittner. Zach Juusola stepped in to fight against Jozef Wittner and fought out the decision victory.

In the end, it was down to either St Louis or Thad Jean for the contract. A tough decision, as St Louis took his fight with extremely short notice to still pull out a second round stoppage. However, Thad Jean looked sharp in his match against an undefeated opponent in Alequin.

The celebrity votes went to Thad Jean but the fans wanted to see St Louis. The PFL President Ray Sefo stepped in to announce that it would be Thad fighting for the $1 million prize this year. The highlight video is below and the remaining results below that.
