Rory MacDonald and Gleison Tibau
Rory MacDonald and Gleison Tibau will headline the PFL 5 main event Thursday.

MMA Fighting has PFL 5 results for Thursday’s night action from the Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City, N.J.

In the main event, one-time UFC welterweight title challenger Rory MacDonald makes his second appearance after a successful PFL debut in April, facing off with longtime MMA veteran Gleison Tibau in a welterweight contest. A win would likely lock up a playoff spot for MacDonald.

Additionally, Season 2 welterweight champ Ray Cooper III returns against vet Nikolai Aleksakhin in the co-main event.
