The 2022 season of the Professional Fighters League has resumed!
Week 4 of the regular season happens tonight (Jun 17) in Atlanta, GA and features a main event between the always entertaining Clay Collard and Jonathan Martinez. In the co-main event, reigning light heavyweight champion Antonio Carlos Junior takes on Bruce Souto.
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 4 is all about the lightweights and light heavyweights, and Bloody Elbow is the place to be to discuss the event. This is the second and final regular season matchup for almost all of these fighters so playoff spots are on the line. The prelims begin at 7 PM ET on ESPN+ and followed by the main card at 10 PM ET on ESPN and ESPN+. International viewers can find their outlet here.
