He then talks about having to fight the reining champ in the first fight of the season and whether or not he wanted that. He also talks about what a win does for him in terms of making a statement, and what winning the PFL belt does for his legacy.

Brendan Loughnane closes out the program to preview his PFL 1 2023 main event fight against Marlon Moraes. Brendan talks about training with Marlon in the past and whether or not that will impact the fight at all. He also talks about whether or not he wanted to do the season again or possibly move up to 155lbs. Brendan then talks about what winning the PFL season again would do for his legacy.
