The PFL 4 official weigh-ins went off without a hitch, with one major exceptions.
Preliminary light heavyweight competitor Ty Flores badly missed weight at the weigh-ins for Thursday’s fight night in Atlanta, coming in at 211.5 pounds for the 205-pound contest. Including the one-pound allowance for non-title fights, Flores was 5.2 pounds over the limit.

Flores’ bout with Dan Spohn (206) will proceed as scheduled according to the PFL, with Flores forfeiting 20 percent of his purse as penalty. Flores also automatically takes a one-point penalty in the light heavyweight standings.
Loughnane, the 2022 featherweight champion, looks to continue the strong start to his 2023 campaign after defeating Marlon Moraes via second-round TKO this past April. The British star has won five straight fights and been victorious in nine of his 10 appearances for the league.
Pinedo is coming off of a loss in his PFL debut, having dropped a split decision to the undefeated Gabriel Braga at the April event.
Ceremonial weigh-ins are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. ET. Watch live video of that event above.
