Per PFL rules, Kaufman had two options in this situation. She could have proceeded with the fight as scheduled for a chance to earn more points toward the PFL playoff seedings, OR she could take the walkover win, securing a spot in the playoffs and earning three points toward her seeding.
Kaufman and her team elected to take the walkover win– she has earned three points and was paid her show and win money for the fight.
