On Wednesday night, the PFL concludes the 2021 season with a loaded map featuring six championship fights and the return of great boxer Claressa Shields for her second professional MMA fight. It’s a huge night for the promotion which should bring a lot of action with $ 1 million at stake for the winner of each of the championship fights.

In the main event of the night, Kayla Harrison will look to win the women’s lightweight tournament – and the $ 1 million prize – for the second time in what could be the last fight of her PFL career. Harrison faces Taylor Guardado in the tournament final. Harrison is a two-time Olympic gold medalist who has dominated since his transition to mixed martial arts, recording an 11-0 record with nine save wins. Guardado entered the season 0-1 as a professional, but won three fights to reach the final, where she will look to score a huge upheaval as a +1300 underdog.

In another title match, the two most recent PFL welterweight champions will face off for this year’s title. Magomed Magomedkerimov won the 2018 season, beating Ray Cooper III in the final with a guillotine choke in the second round. Cooper returned to win the 2019 season and now the pair have advanced to the final with undefeated 2021 seasons to stage a massive rematch.

Other titles on the line Wednesday night include heavyweights, light heavyweights, lightweights and featherweights.

While not a championship fight, Claressa Shields’ fight on Wednesday night is expected to make the headlines of the event. Shields is the greatest female boxer in history, having won world titles in three weight classes. Looking for a new challenge, Shields signed with the PFL where she faced off against Brittney Elkin, a fighter who entered the cage with a 3-6 record and still dominated much of the fight, taking advantage of the lack. of Shields’ wrestling skills before draining himself and allowing Shields to score a TKO in the third round. Shields now faces off against Abigail Montes 2-0, a fighter who likely has less wrestling skills than Elkin showcased in her fight with Shields.

Here is the fight card for the PFL World Championship with the latest odds from Caesars Sportsbook.
