PFL World Championship 2022 video by Rob Wilkinson. A savage and striking display to defeat Omari Akhmedov


Rob Wilkinson only got two fights in the UFC before he was released but he earned a measure of redemption by claiming a $1 million prize in the PFL Championships on Friday.

The Australian light heavyweight gave a spectacular performance as he fought Omari Akhmedov on both sides of the cage, while opening an eye-sore. Wilkinson appeared to be close to a knockout at the end the second round, but the bell went off before he was able put Akhmedov out.

Between rounds, the cutman worked feverishly on Akhmedov but the ringside physician took a look at him and decided he had already seen enough. Wilkinson celebrated the win and received a seven-figure check as a reward.

” The million dollar is amazing, but the belt was something that I had been dreaming of 10 many years ago,” Wilkinson stated. It took a lot of hard work to reach this point. Baby, I am a world champion!

“I knew he was saved by the bell but I was ready to go back in the third round. Everyone thought I was a first round fighter but I’ve got at least two in me.”

Wilkinson was on fire from the start of the fight as he came gunning for Akhmedov with every strike in his arsenal. He used his hands to create nasty combinations and then he was pounding Akhmedov’s knees whenever they were in a fight.

Akhmedov was a creditable fighter. However, he couldn’t prove anything other than that he had an iron jaw as Wilkinson was just trying to get on top of him in the second round.

In the end, the doctor saved Akhemdov from potential harm by sending him out for more after he could barely stand when the second round ended.

Wilkinson has now won his past six fights in a row since exiting the UFC and he’ll leave with the $1 million paycheck and a PFL championship following his latest victory.
