The Professional Fighters League looks to end its latest season in the U.S. on a high note, while the playoffs for PFL Europe are just heating up. The semi-finals of PFL Europe 3 take place at Zenith Paris in France on September 30 and will air on DAZN in the U.K.
This show will be headlined by Cedric Doumbe vs. Jordan Zebo in welterweight action. Meanwhile, the playoffs feature those in the light heavyweight, flyweight, lightweight, and bantamweight divisions.
A former Glory Kickboxing welterweight champion, Doumbe has over 45 wins via knockout and won various tournaments. Joining MMA in 2021, he is 4-0, with all four wins coming via knockout. The 31-year-old will make his PFL SmartCage debut.
“I am a unique fighter joining a unique organization in the PFL,” said Doumbe. “I look forward to great success in the PFL.”
Zebo turned pro in 2022 and has primarily fought for Ares FC. His last bout was a TKO win over Mickael Marie Sardi in May.
Dakota Ditcheva will highlight the PFL’s flyweight division when she faces Cornelia Holm. A three-time world champion in Muay Thai, Ditcheva turned pro in 2021. The 25-year-old Brit joined the PFL in 2022 and defeated Malin Hermansson in a quarter-final bout in March. Holm turned pro in 2017.
