The Professional Fighters League (PFL), the fastest growing and most innovative sports league, is set for its second event of the season this Thursday, April 29 on ESPN2, ESPN Deportes and ESPN+. Top-10 ranked welterweight and former Bellator world champion Rory MacDonald will make his highly anticipated PFL debut when he takes on PFL newcomer Curtis Millender in what will be a memorable matchup.

The co-main event features 2019 PFL welterweight champion and Hawaiian knockout machine Ray Cooper III as he looks to start his path to back-to-back titles with a clash against Frenchman Jason Ponet.

Sordi finished all five of his opponents, with four in the first round, en route to the 2019 PFL title and looks to string together another impressive season as he climbs the sport’s light heavyweight rankings.
Calling the live action will be play-by-play announcer and former world champion, Sean O’Connell. He’ll be joined by Hall of Famer and MMA legend Randy Couture and the newest addition to the PFL broadcast team and one of the most popular MMA personalities today, Kenny Florian.
