The Professional Fighters League have announced a couple of changes to Saturday’s card in Cardiff, Wales.
Welterweight talent Magomed Umalatov and heavyweight contender Denis Goltsov were removed from their respective semifinal bouts with Rory MacDonald and Matheus Scheffel due to visa issues, with Dilano Taylor and Juan Adams stepping in as replacements.
MacDonald (23-9-1) made it to the welterweight tournament semifinal despite losing a decision to Sadibou Sy in his most recent bout in July, while Taylor (9-2) looks to bounce from his loss to Magomed Magomedkerimov, his first setback in three PFL appearances.
PFL 8 will air live on ESPN. The winner of MacDonald vs. Taylor will advance rto meet whoever advances in Carlos Leal vs. Sadibou Sy, while Scheffel and Adams battle for a spot in the final against the winner of Renan Ferreira vs. Ante Delija.
