    Very interested to see how this tournament plays out… and of course how Smealinho Rama does in it!

    After a little digging I was able to find some info on how the regular season will be scored.

    “MMAjunkie picked up additional information on the regular season. Each fighter is guaranteed two fights under the traditional show/win payment structure. The points system incentivizes early finishes, and the top eight competitors all advance to the playoffs.

    For the two regular season fights, which are three-round contests, athletes are awarded 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw. Additionally, fighters get 3 bonus points for a first-round finish, 2 bonus points for a second-round finish and 1 bonus point for a third-round finish. After everyone fights twice, the top eight fighters advance to a single elimination playoff system.

    In the event of tiebreakers, “head-to-head result is the first such qualifier” but there are other rules in place to determine playoff seeding. Additionally, “Ties will not be allowed, nor will overtime rounds, and PFL officials are currently working with the planned host commissions to ensure judges can determine a winner, if needed.” Only the championship fights will be five rounds.

    You may remember that Bellator MMA forbade elbows in tournament competition until the final. PFL is also banning elbows, but this also extends to the championship matches.

    “We felt like if everyone is training and operating that way across their first, their second, their quarterfinal and their semifinal fight, we’d just keep the rule consistent,” PFL president Carlos Silva said to Newsday.”
