The PFL 2019 welterweight champion dusted off his gloves to score an arm-triangle choke submission victory at the expense of Jason Ponet, who tapped 83 seconds into the opening round. After securing six points, “Bradda Boy” turned his attention to the PFL 2 headliner, which saw Ultimate Fighting Championship vet and Bellator MMA 170-pound champion Rory MacDonald submit Curtis Millender with ease.
