PFL 8: Playoffs was a mixed martial arts event produced by the Professional Fighters League held on October 5, 2018, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.[1]

Background[edit]

The event was the eighth of the 2018 season and marked the start of the playoffs.[1][2]

Philipe Lins was expected to face Valdrin Istrefi in a playoff bout at this event, however, Istrefi was removed due to injury and replaced by the highest ranked alternate on the undercard, Caio Alencar. As a result, Alencar's original opponent of Mike Kyle was paired with Mo De'Reese in a bout to determine a new alternate.

Timur Valiev was expected to face Alexandre de Almeida in a playoff bout at this event, however, Valiev was removed due to injury and replaced by the highest ranked alternate on the undercard, Jumabieke Tuerxun. As a result Tuerxun's original opponent of Marcos Galvão was set to face Jeremy Kennedy in a bout to determine a new alternate. However on the day of the event Kennedy dropped out due to undisclosed reasons, and so Galvao was automatically pushed forward as the new alternate instead.
