Omari Akhmedov earns final spot with win over Josh Silveira

It was a lackluster affair, but Omari Akhmedov advances to the light heavyweight finals of the 2022 PFL season with a win over Josh Silveira.

The 2022 PFL light heavyweight championship matchup is now set, as Omari Akhmedov made fairly easy work of Josh Silveira to clinch the remaining finals spot.

Akhmedov will meet Rob Wilkinson, the tournament‘s No. 1 seed who scored a win earlier in the evening to advance to the title fight.

The opening round between the two was fairly quiet and lacked action, with the most noticeable event being a takedown from Akhmedov. Silveira attempted to use his grappling and wrestle with Akhmedov in the second round, but his offensive output just didn’t seem there. Akhmedov was clearly the busier fighter.

Even when needing a finish, Silveira just didn’t get into second gear, as it was Akhmedov who brought the pressure even in the third. Silveira got a takedown in the fight’s closing seconds, but it was far from enough.

Akhmedov got the nod on all three judges’ scorecards, with two 30-27s and a 29-28.

PFL Playoffs: Anthony Pettis vs. Stevie Ray takes place on Friday, Aug. 5, 2022, live from Madison Square Garden in New York, NY. Follow along with FanSided MMA who is on-site for all your news and highlights.
