The 2021 PFL Championship event will take place Oct. 27 at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla. The main card airs on ESPN2 and streams on ESPN+ following prelims on ESPN+
Although divisional titleholder will be decided at heavyweight, light heavyweight, welterweight, lightweight and featherweight, much of the attention will be paid to the women’s lightweight final in the main event, where Kayla Harrison (11-0) looks for her second PFL championship against sizable underdog Taylor Guardado (3-1).
The other big attraction on the card has no championship stakes attached to it. Boxing world champion Claressa Shields (1-0) will compete in her second MMA bout when she takes on Abigail Montes (2-0).
