After opening the inaugural PFL Europe campaign with successful events in England and Germany, the Professional Fighters League’s first continental expansion is bringing the SmartCage to France for this year’s playoffs.

While the Newcastle and Berlin season cards delivered entertainment and showcased the talent on offer across the pond, today’s card in Paris is undoubtedly PFL Europe’s most stacked lineup to date.

That’s courtesy of some matchups outside of the semifinal pairings, including the main event. Topping the action will be former two-time Glory Kickboxing champion Cédric Doumbé, who makes his PFL debut on home soil after an injury kept him out of an entry into the global season this past summer.

In the Frenchman’s way of a successful arrival will be fellow countryman Jordan Zébo, a three-fight ARES FC veteran who is looking to extend his undefeated professional MMA record by blemishing that of “The Best.”

Before the headliner, another notable newcomer will take to the SmartCage for the first time in Abdoul Abdouraguimov. “The Lazy King” had his public calls for a UFC signing not answered this year, and the former two-weight ARES FC champ will instead look to make an impact in the PFL.

Elsewhere, rising UK stars Simeon Powell and Dakota Ditcheva look to continue their charge into spots at the Dublin held championships, Laureano Staropoli hopes to extend his post-UFC winning run, Dylan Tuke and Jake Kaszuba collide after a heated faceoff in Berlin, and former Muay Thai champion-turned-MMA prospect Shanelle Dyer targets a statement-making debut, 

PFL Europe continues not to be available for North American audiences, but MMA News has you covered with the full results and all the highlights below!
