PFL Challenger Series 2023 headed into week 3 on February 10, 2023, from Universal Studios in Orlando, FL. This week, it’s heavyweight prospects who took to the octagon to try and earn PFL season contracts.
Unlike the previous two weeks, this week’s headliner included two fairly experienced fighters in Ras Hylton and Brazil’s Danilo Marques. Hylton, 9-6 MMA, previously appeared in Bellator in 2020 and had 1 win and 1 loss under the promotion.
Danilo Marques, 12-4 MMA, has a 2-2 record with UFC. He was let go from the promotion last year after his second loss at the hands of Jailton Almeida. He made his UFC debut at UFC 253 in September 2020, and won his first 2 UFC bouts.
