WSOF featherweight champ Andre Harrison meets Steven Rodriguez in 'PFL: Everett' main event

The newly announced Professional Fighters League will get off the ground Saturday in Florida and has three other cards planned for later this year before going full-bore into events in 2018 with its debut season.

Next month’s PFL card in Everett, Wash., now has a headliner. Andre Harrison (16-0), who will go down as the final WSOF featherweight champion, will take on Steven Rodriguez (10-2) in the main event, MMAjunkie has confirmed with a promotion official.

“PFL: Everett” will take place July 29 and is expected to air on NBCSN. PFL officials will use the fights in the four events in 2017 to determine rankings for the 2018 season, which will start in January. The tournament-style promotion, formed from WSOF, expects to award each of its winners a $1 million prize.

Harrison won the featherweight title in March with a unanimous decision victory over Lance Palmer. The victory kept Harrison unbeaten at 16-0. The former Titan FC featherweight champ won both his fights for WSOF and went 7-0 for Titan FC. Prior to that, he was a perfect 7-0 for Ring of Combat and that promotion’s 145-pound champion.

Rodriguez, from Costa Rica, has won nine straight fights. Seven of his wins in that stretch have come by stoppage, including six submissions. One of the two decisions in his current run came by split call to Alexandre Almeida at WSOF 35 in March.
