The 2022 season of the Professional Fighters League continues!
Week 2 of the regular season happens tonight (Apr. 28) in Arlington, TX and features a main event between 2021 heavyweight champion Bruno Cappelozza and the UK’s Stuart Austin. Co-main event action sees two-time PFL featherweight champ Lance Palmer against UFC veteran and 2021 PFL featherweight runner-up Chris Wade.
If you’re unfamiliar with the PFL points system for the regular season: everyone competes twice, with three five-minute rounds (but no elbows), and the points system works as follows:
Win - 3 pts
First round stoppage - 3 bonus pts
Second round stoppage - 2 bonus pts
Third round stoppage - 1 bonus pt
Draw - 1 pt for each fighter
Loss - 0 points
Week 2 is all about the heavyweights and featherweights, and Bloody Elbow is the place to be to discuss the event. The prelims begin at 6:30 PM ET on ESPN+ and followed by the main card at 9 PM ET on ESPN2 and ESPN+. International viewers can find their outlet here.
