PFL vs. Bellator Champs: Four main fights preview

Renan Ferreira vs. Ryan Bader

This stacked fight card is topped by a heavyweight clash of the highest caliber as Renan Ferreira (12 – 3) takes on Ryan Bader (31 – 7). Ferreira dominated last year’s PFL season and Playoffs, stopping all three of his opponents. Thanks to his forceful second-round TKO finish over Denis Goltsov, he was crowned the 2023 PFL Heavyweight Champion. Ryan Bader is the current Bellator Heavyweight Champion, who also enjoys a three-fight winning streak. In his last bout, Bader sent the legendary Fedor Emelianenko into retirement. Additionally, he’s unbeaten as a heavyweight competitor. Will Ferreira serve Bader his first loss in the 265 division, or will the Bellator representative continue his winning ways and prove his dominance?

Impa Kasanganay vs. Johnny Eblen

After capturing the PFL Light Heavyweight gold, Impa Kasanganay (15 – 3) makes his return to the 185 pounds division and has his sights set on undefeated Johnny Eblen (14 – 0). Kasangay, who’s unbeaten in the PFL, had a long-term tenure as a middleweight, where he won eight consecutive fights. After a brief stint as a middleweight, he made his way to the PFL 205 division, where he rides a five-fight winning streak. In his middleweight return, he will test himself against the unbeaten Eblen, who in his most recent fight stopped Fabian Edwards. As a Bellator Middleweight champion, Eblen holds victories over Gegard Mousasi and Fabian Edwards.

Magomed Magomedkerimov vs. Jason Jackson

Magomed Magomedkerimov (34 – 6) is a two-time PFL Welterweight champion, who has a 16 – 1 balance in the promotion. He will be looking to continue his six-fight winning streak. During this series, he secured wins over Gleison Tibau, Dawid Zawada, and Sadibouy Sy. Jason Jackson (17-4) stacked up seventeen wins during his welterweight campaign, grabbing a couple of championships in the process. He became a Bellator Welterweight champion by stopping Yaroslav Amosov with his punches.

Jesus Pinedo vs. Patricio Pitbull

Another newly crowned PFL champion, Jesus Pinedo (23-6-1), went through the grueling PFL 2023 season by defeating Brendan Loughnane, Bubba Jenkins, and finally, Gabriel Alves Braga. His toughest test is yet ahead of him as he takes on one of Bellator’s icons, Patricio Pitbull (35-7). The reigning Bellator Featherweight titleholder will try to bounce back after two consecutive losses in both the Bellator cage and the Rizin ring.
