CFFC vet Jesse Stirn and former UFC fighter Bobby Moffett have both been called upon to compete at PFL’s June 10th event, stepping in for Lazar Stojadinovic and Anthony Dizy respectively.
Now, Moffett is set to face Bubba Jenkins and Stirn has been paired against two-time PFL champ Lance Palmer. The matchups are set to take place as part of a regular-season card from the Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA.
The two changes to PFL’s June 10th lineup were announced by the promotion earlier this week. The reason for the withdrawal of Dizy and Stojadinovic from the lineup is not known.
Stirn joins the PFL roster after competing under regional promotion CFFC in his last two bouts. While he lost a title fight to Pat Sabatini late last year, the 29-year-old bounced back in April with a decision victory over Reginald Adams.
His opponent, Palmer, has something to prove in the fight as his last appearance saw him lose for the first time in 11 fights. His long win streak included two successful championship runs in the PFL.
Moffet is making the move to the PFL after a three-fight run in the UFC from 2018 to 2019. His UFC career came to a close after he lost a split decision to Enrique Barzola in August of 2019, which handed him his second consecutive loss.
He will fight Jenkins, who is riding the momentum of a win against Palmer in his PFL debut last month.
Former UFC fighter Anthony Pettis is set to headline the June 10th card against undefeated fighter Alexander Martinez. Here is how the lineup looks with the new bouts in place.
