Tasmanian-based light-heavyweight Rob Wilkinson continued his fine form on the weekend with a first-round stoppage against Viktor Pesta.
Wilkinson was taken down early however straight away scrambled to his feet where he was clinical with his boxing. An overhand right rocked his opponent, with a follow-up right dropping his opponent. Wilkinson stayed calm and Pesta was met with another right that dropped him. Wilkinson flurried and ended the contest.
The win earned Wilkinson 6-points and the top position in the light-heavyweight division as the competition moves to the playoffs.
PFL runs a league and playoff format with the top point scorers after the opening two fights, progressing to the playoffs where they will be two fights away from a US$1 million purse.
Wilkinson (15-2) will now face Brazilian Delon Monte (9-2) while in the other semi-final Omari Akhmedov (23-7-1) takes on Antônio Carlos Júnior (15-5, 2 no-contests).
