All fighters successfully made weight for Thursday’s PFL 2 event, including short notice replacement Askar Mozharov, who certainly made his presence known after stepping onto the stage to face off with Jordan Young.
With PFL and UFC vet Vinny Magalhaes not cleared to compete, Mozharov signed on to fight Young and went for the jugular, shoving his fist in Young’s face before shoving him.
PFL 2 takes place Thursday at Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City. The event’s prelims air on ESPN+ with main card bouts on ESPN2.

In other notable weigh-ins, Tom Lawlor again made the most of the occasion, hoisting a sign in a nod to the “dude with a sign” Twitter account. Lawlor’s sign, of course, was to encourage fans to follow him online.
