The PFL returns to Europe for the third time this year with PFL Europe 3, live from Paris, France. There are plenty of competitive match-ups throughout the card and we have all your live results right here!
PFL Europe 3
Headlining the card will be the striking sensation, Cedric Doumbe, making his promotional debut against Jordan Zebo. Frenchman Doumbe has a storied kickboxing background and will certainly be a fan favourite when he steps in there. Fellow Frenchman, Zebo has made a name for himself on Ares FC and won’t be an easy guy to knock over. In this exciting all French clash, expect fireworks.
The co-main event features the highly anticipated promotional debut of The Lazy King, Abdoul Abdouraguimov. The two-weight Ares world champion was courted by a number of respectable organisations, however, he chose the PFL. The 16-1 submission specialist will be facing late-notice opponent, Brad Wheeler. Wheeler, a veteran of 31 professional fights, he’ll be making the walk for the first time since 2019 and will be looking to make a name for himself with a win in the French capital.
Alex Chizov missed weight at today’s weigh ins and was replaced in the Men’s Lightweight Playoffs by alternate fighter Geisym Derouiche. In addition, Manuela Marconetto missed weight, giving Valentina Scatizzi a walkover win and spot in the PFL Europe Championship.
Also featuring on the PFL Europe 3 card are the 2023 play-offs, ahead of the December 8th finals. The highlights from these match-ups have to be the two English talents.
Light heavyweight Simeon Powell has looked flawless throughout his professional career and at 24 years old has already progressed to 8-0. Smooth has brutal knockout power and an ever evolving ground game.
Elsewhere we have Dakota Ditcheva looking to remain undefeated and progress to 9-0. The ATT and Manchester Top Team talent has looked flawless throughout her career thusfar, especially in the PFL. Making her promotional debut in August of last year, she’s yet to see a second round for the PFL, finishing all three of her opponents. She takes on 6-5, Cornelia Holm, who is certainly better than her record may have you believe. With that being said, she’s 2-4 in her last six fights and likely won’t give Ditcheva many issues. The winner of this one clashes was set to clash with the winner of Manuela Marconetto vs. Valentina Scatizzi, however, this fight was scrapped when the former missed weight. Scatizzi was granted a walkover and will fight in the tournament final.
Dylan Tuke returns after his upset victory last time out over Connor Hughes, as does the undefeated finishing machine, Ali Taleb. Taleb clashes in the bantamweight semi-finals with Khurshed Kakhorov.
Ireland’s John Mitchell will be looking to book a finals place in his home of country of Ireland when he clashes with Geisym Derouiche. Alex Chizov, Mitchell’s original opponent missed weight at weigh ins and was replaced.
The card is also filled with four, none tournament fights, including the addition of Shanelle Dyer. At just 2-0 and only 22 years old, Dyer is a huge prospect and also wonthe Four Nations armature flyweight title last year.
