2023 PFL 4 lineup set: Brendan Loughnane, Robert Wilkinson, Thiago Santos return to action June 8

The 2023 PFL regular season continues June 8 with featherweights and light heavyweights in action.

Following the first three events of the season at The Theater at Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas, the promotion settles in for its next series of events at Overtime Elite Arena in Atlanta, with each event airing live on ESPN and ESPN+. In a press release Wednesday, PFL officially announced the lineup for 2023 PFL 4.

The main event will see 2022 featherweight champion Brendan Loughnane takes on Jesus Pinedo. At 2023 PFL 1, Loughnane (27-4 MMA, 9-1 PFL) began his 2023 season with a second-round stoppage of Marlon Moraes, while Pinedo (20-6-1 MMA, 0-1 PFL) lost a close split decision to Gabriel Braga.

Loughnane currently sits atop the featherweight standings with 5 points, with Bubba Jenkins, Movlid Khaybulaev, Alejandro Flores and Braga all tied with 3 points.

The co-main bout takes place in the light heavyweight division, with 2022 champion Rob Wilkinson facing Will Fleury. Wilkinson (18-2 MMA, 0-2 PFL) was victorious in his first bout of the season, spoiling the debut of former UFC title challenger Thiago Santos by unanimous decision. Fleury (12-3 MMA, 2-0 PFL) was also successful in the first fight of the regular season, defeating Krzysztof Jotko by split decision.

Santos (22-12 MMA, 0-1 PFL) will look to snap his skid and get back on track at the event, as he faces Mohammad Fakhreddine (15-5 MMA, 0-1 PFL).

Marthin Hamlet and Josh Silveira both have 6 points atop the light heavyweight standings, with Ty Flores, Wilkinson and Fleury at 3 points.
