With the win, Loughnane received $1 million. Plus, he was named the PFL Featherweight Champion.

“That’s why I was so emotional when I finished him, I was just like, ‘Wow, it’s over – the goal I’ve had,’” Loughnane told reporters at the post-fight press conference (via MMA Sucka). “I’ve had this up on my wall since I joined the PFL. That’s how serious I was about this sh*t. I didn’t come here to play around. You just watched a young lad achieve his dream.”

Loughnane is now 26-4 as an MMA fighter. The Manchester, England fighter has now won four straight bouts.

He is now 8-1 in the PFL. His only loss in the PFL came at PFL 2021 #9 in a split decision loss to Movlid Khaybulaev.

This was Loughnane’s first knockout since April 23rd, 2021 when he knocked out Sheymon Moraes in the first round in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Jenkins fell to 19-6 with the loss. He is now 5-2 within the PFL cage.

The loss snapped his three-fight win streak. This is his first loss since he suffered a unanimous decision loss to Chris Wade at PFL 2021 #9.

It has been over six years since Jenkins suffered a knockout. His last knockout came on August 26th, 2016, in a first-round loss to Georgi Karakhanyan at Bellator 160.
