Chris Wade - a complete fighter
Chris Wade is hungry for redemption as he sets his sights on Bubba Jenkins in their upcoming rematch. Despite suffering a loss to Brendan Loughnane in the PFL 9 playoffs in 2022, Wade is determined to prove himself as a well-rounded fighter with a strong wrestling base and an impressive striking game. Although his submission skills are top-notch, they may have proven costly in his previous fight against Jenkins, as he focused too heavily on seeking submission opportunities rather than defending against his opponent's attacks. However, Wade has demonstrated his skills with a solid jab and a powerful left hook, which he will likely use to keep Jenkins at bay. Having left the UFC after a win against Frankie Perez in 2017, Wade has since focused on becoming a force in the featherweight division, despite consecutive losses in the lightweight playoffs for the 2021 season. As he prepares for this rematch, Wade is focused on keeping the fight standing and proving his worth as a dominant fighter.
Bubba Jenkins – a slight underdog
Bubba Jenkins is a contender, ready to take on the best in the PFL super featherweight division. With two playoff appearances already under his belt, Jenkins is no stranger to high-stakes competition, though his loss to Brendan Loughnane in the final was a disappointing outcome for the talented fighter. Despite this setback, Jenkins remains one of the most explosive fighters in the division, known for his knockout power and impressive wrestling skills. Though he prefers to keep the fight standing and look for opportunities to land his power shots, Jenkins is capable of delivering devastating blows with his overhand right and powerful left hook. While he may have lost a significant amount of money due to his 56 leg kicks in the previous season, Jenkins is focused on dominating his upcoming rematch against Chris Wade and making his mark as one of the most exciting fighters in the PFL.
