The first PFL vs. Bellator event was a fan-friendly success, with the Bellator team securing a clear 5-1 victory over the PFL fighters. However, the sole win for the PFL might've been the most important, as it solidified Francis Ngannou's next opponent.

In less than thirty seconds, Renan Ferreira made short work of Ryan Bader, TKOing the Bellator Champion. The 6'7 Brazillian fighter holds a professional record of 12-4-3NC and has won his last four fights by KO/TKO.

Ngannou will face former 2x Unified Heavyweight World Champion Anthony Joshua in a 10-round main event on March 8th, but after that, he has announced he will return to MMA for the first time since 2022. The stage is now set for Francis Ngannou vs. Renan Ferreira.
