    Few notes: Yes, I know the Escudero/Mamedov fight was cancelled and prelims will probably start around 7:30 instead of 7, but I'm going by the PFLMMA's page time. I'll update it if they do.

    And the LHW tourney is a huge mess, only five of the 12 fighters that fought in the first stage are competing again tonight.

    So down from 13 fights in the first session (one non-tourney) to 8 fights?

    Yeah, that's the way PFL goes.

    PFL loves that big gap between prelim and main show, so I'm going to guess the first fight will start about 10 after.

    Their shit changes so much I assumed it already changed. Looks like its starting now.

    PFL needs to do a better of communicating with the fans. You really have to be a die hard to keep up with their schedule.

    Can't believe they're doing Brooks/Watley before the playoffs

    Well I was certainly wrong about the first fight at being about 10 after. Stream not even up yet.

    Yeah, it's a mess. We're hoping the other guys get medically cleared by the time other cards roll around, but honestly we really don't know. When seven of the twelve don't get cleared in time, there's not much we can do as far as tourneys go.
