PFL 5 Professional Fighters League Predictions & Tips For June 17
- Week 5 of the PFL regular season takes place on June 17
- PFL regular season events are being held at Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey
- Preview, tips & odds for PFL 5
The 2021 Professional Fighters League regular season continues with the Week 5 event on Thursday night.
The card is headlined by a fight between two former UFC veterans – Rory MacDonald and Gleison Tibau.
Our tips for the night’s action are provided by expert MMA analysts and tipsters.
Rory MacDonald vs Gleison Tibau
Rory MacDonald made a statement in his PFL debut by submitting Curtis Millender in the first round.
In his sophomore outing he is facing Gleison Tibau, a man who has a wealth of experience having competed in the UFC for several years.
Tibau needs a quick finish to stay in the playoff hunt after losing last time out, so expect a fast start from him here.
MacDonald can ride out an early storm, impose himself on the fight and improve to 2-0 in the PFL.
Ray Cooper III vs Nikolay Aleksakhin
Ray Cooper III won the 2019 PFL welterweight competition and made a winning start to the 2021 edition in April.
The American submitted Jason Ponet with an arm-triangle choke just 83 seconds into the bout and is now riding at three-fight win streak.
Kickboxer Nikolay Aleksakhin is dangerous on his feet but his grappling is a major question mark.
If Cooper III can get the Russian on his back on the mat he could control the contest and maybe force a finish.
