The Brit Pack is back to recap a packed weekend of MMA action and look ahead to a pivotal event for a host of British fighters at the UFC Apex.

First, we look back at the final round of PFL Playoffs, as England’s Brendan Loughnane agonisingly lost out on a place in the final via split decision to Russian contender Movlid Khaybulaev.

Then we move on to the action at the UFC Apex as Giga Chikadze delivered a stellar performance to defeat veteran striker Edson Barboza and announce himself as the featherweight division’s newest contender.

We also give our reaction to the previous night’s event in Cleveland, Ohio, as Jake Paul continued his unbeaten start to life as a professional boxer with a split-decision win over former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley. Should people still doubt “The Problem Child,” or should he get more respect than he’s receiving? Also, what did we make of Woodley’s performance, and subsequent pleas for a rematch?

Finally, we look ahead to UFC Fight Night at the UFC Apex as England’s own Darren Till gets set to headline in a crucial bout for his middleweight title quest when he takes on the in-form Derek Brunson on a card featuring a host of Brits.

It’s a packed show, and it’s all yours, right here.
