The Professional Fighters League returns to the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Thursday for its second show of the 2019 season, but three Brazilians have been pulled from the card in Long Island, NY.
Bezerra told MMA Fighting he passed out while cutting weight in a hot tub and was taken by his coach to a local hospital. According to “Popo”, he still had seven pounds left to cut when he passed out.
The third Brazilian removed from Thursday night’s event is Ronys Torres, who was not medically cleared by the New York State Athletic Commission for undisclosed reasons, according to sources. His opponent, Ramsey Nijem, will be awarded three points in the PFL system.
