    There are a lot of familiar names on the card.

    It could use some bigger names main eventing.

    It is a better card top to bottom than most Bellator cards, let alone ONE Championship. It still isn't must watch.

    It beats an average Bellator card.
    I'll easily take all of these fights over the numerous (2-1) randos fighting each other on Bellator's undercards.

    Seeing an entire division on one card is going to be weird though.

    Whatever makes the PFL stand out, I guess.

    I like the two divisions on a card in this format because it naturally builds a storyline. This booking allows the viewer to see all the heavyweights at once, on one card.

    Well I'm at the very least way more interested to see this PFL season format play out than I was for any more wsof cards. Lets see how this goes since this is a pretty solid first offering on paper.

    they shouldnt have matched up jordan vs kyle in the first round. those are two big names, split them up and hope they stay in for viewers.

    they are two names but I wouldn't say Jordan was ever a big one. I expect him to decimate Kyle at this stage.

    I wish they would actually come out and explain the reasoning behind all the matchups. Would be interesting and a first in MMA if they did it for all the fights. Could include it in the buildup footage, 30 second clip explaining each matchup. I wouldn't be surprised if certain favored fighters are being allowed to hand pick their opponents as part of their contract.

    glad they are splitting up the weight classes onto different cards. I'm intrigued enough to give these shows a chance.

    The more I think about it, the more I agree. Guarantees better cards.

    Brandon Halsey stated on Instagram that he was fighting on the 2nd show (July 21st). I'm guessing the show after this one will be Light-Heavyweights and Lightweights on the card. Both of those divisions look pretty good. If this card is something to go by, then the early season schedule should look something like this:

    Early season
    June 7th - Heavyweights/Featherweights
    June 21st - Light-Heavyweights/Lightweights
    July 5th - Middleweights/Welterweights.

    The June 21st card might have the most potential for stacked-ness, if I'm correct. Either that, or the divisions will be divided up more throughout shows as the season goes on. This show might be a one-off for full division cards considering the amount of shows' correlation with the amount of fights for each fighter.

    If they put light heavy with lightweights that’s their best first round show by far I agree
