PFL 5 is one of tonight’s mma cards and it’s going down live (June 16th) from the Overtime Elite Arena in Atlanta, Georgia to continue on with their 2023 season. The promotion’s heavyweight and women’s featherweight tournament bouts will be on display here, as well as the professional mma debut of the grandson of Muhammad Ali.
The top of the PFL 5 billing will see the 2022 season’s heavyweight tournament champion, Ante Delija, lock horns with ex-UFC fighter, Maurice Greene. Delija pulled off four straight victories last year, and has won six of his last seven. After going 4-4 in the UFC, Greene has gone 2-1, but is coming off of a cool standing TKO victory back in April of this year. No matter where this fight takes place, there’s a great chance that somebody’s getting finished here.
The PFL 5 co-main event is getting last year’s women’s featherweight tournament champion, Larissa Pacheco, scrapping it out with Bellator veteran Amber Leibrock. Pacheco has the hot hand right now. She posted up back-to-back wins over an at the time undefeated Kayla Harrison, and then went on to school Julia Budd earlier this year. Leibrock is fresh off of a dope head kick KO of Martina Jindrová last April, but she is going to have hger hands quite full with Pacheco.
The undercard also features familiar faces like former UFC fighters Danilo Marques and Aspen Ladd, plus former Bellator featherweight champ, Julia Budd. On top of that, Biaggio Ali Walsh, the grandson of Muhammad Ali, will be competing on a rather large stage. At 3-1 as an ammy, with his last two matches actually occurring in the PFL cage, Biaggio is turning pro against the 3-2 Travell Miller.
The start time for the PFL 5 card is 6:30pm ET. The event can be streamed on ESPN+/ESPN in North America, and then on the promotion’s YouTube channel for other locations.
