The Professional Fighters League 2019 campaign continues to roll on, and the majority of the competitors set for the promotion’s fourth regular season event hit their contracted weights.
However, there were two glaring exceptions.
Roberta Samad, who was scheduled to face UFC and Invicta FC veteran Sarah Kaufman in a featured 155-pound affair, was unable to make weight on Wednesday. As a result, Kaufman was awarded a walkover victory and three points. That secures Kaufman a spot in the upcoming PFL playoffs.
Meanwhile, Zane Kamaka failed to make weight for his 170-pound clash with Andre Fialho. Given that he has missed his mark on multiple occasions, Kamaka has been expelled from the season. Fialho, like Kaufman, received three points in the standings for a walkover win.
PFL 4: 2019 Regular Season takes place at Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City, N.J., and is topped by a welterweight clash pitting 2018 champion Magomed Magomedkerimov against Chris Curtis. Magmoedkerimov tipped the scales at 170.6 pounds, while Curtis checked in at 171 pounds.
Magomedkerimov is currently on a nine-bout winning streak that includes a first-round submission of John Howard in PFL’s season opening event on May 9. Curtis, meanwhile, brings an eight-fight winning streak into the matchup and is coming off a third-round TKO of Andre Fialho on the same card.
The featured women’s lightweight bout will pit two-time Olympic gold medalist Kayla Harrison (155.6) against Morgan Frier (152.6). Harrison improved to 4-0 in her budding MMA career with a decision win over Larissa Pacheco at PFL 1: 2019 regular season, while Frier was submitted in the opening stanza by Sarah Kaufman on the same card.
The PFL 4: 2019 Regular Season main card airs on ESPN2 at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT, while the prelims stream immediately prior on ESPN+ at 5:30 p.m. ET/2:30 p.m. PT.
