Ray Cooper III headlined the PFL 3 card in July, but it’s safe to say that most fans were interested in Cooper’s opponent at that event.
Cooper faced two-time WSOF title challenger Jake Shields and blasted through Shields that night in Washington D.C. He stopped Shields in the second round via strikes. Thursday, Cooper headlines PFL 6, and the odds are good that fans will be tuning in to see what he can do in his second regular-season bout. Cooper faces Pavel Kusch in the main event.
The PFL 6 fight card is the final chance for the majority of the organization’s middleweight and welterweight fighters to score regular season points and secure a spot in the playoffs, which are set to begin in October. Several “name” fighters, including Shields, Yuri Villefort, Eddie Gordon and Abubakar Nurmagomedov have zero points heading into their make-or-break bouts.
PFL 6 takes place at Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City, N.J. The televised card airs on NBCSN following a live-streamed start of the event on Facebook.
