‘Dark horse seed’ Alex Polizzi ready to play spoiler vs. Impa Kasanganay at PFL 2

LAS VEGAS – Alex Polizzi is drawing PFL’s most recent light heavyweight champion in his debut.

Polizzi (10-3) meets 2023 PFL light heavyweight champion Impa Kasanganay (15-4) in the PFL 2 co-main event at The Theater at Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas.

Polizzi faces a stern test for his first regular season fight, but isn’t fazed.

“I told my manager right off the bat: We got the dark horse seed,” Polizzi told reporters during a media scrum at Xtreme Couture. “It’s a chance for me to go in, my debut in the PFL, to show them what ‘Easy Polizzi’ is all about. Whether we win, lose or draw, like I always say, it’s going to be a good time.”

Polizzi finds himself in unfamiliar territory having lost back to-back to Yoel Romero and Karl Moore. While the aim is to snap his two-fight losing skid, Polizzi also guarantees to entertain. Eight of his 10 professional wins have come by finish.

“I don’t want to make it seem like, ‘Oh, if you’ve seen one Alex fight, you’ve seen them all,'” Polizzi said. “The thing is, I’m always bringing a certain amount of organized chaos.

“So make sure you’re tuning in because I’m going to do some weird stuff. I’m going to have a lot of fun doing it, and like I say all the time, if you guys are having half as much fun watching me as I’m getting out of it, that’s worth the price of admission.”
