In the main card opener, 2018 PFL Welterweight Champion Magomed Magomedkerimov and Brazilian Joao Zeferino are set to face off. Zeferino is coming off of a hard fought a split-decision loss to 2022 PFL Challenger Series contestant Dilano Taylor. Magomedkerimov, who is making his 2022 PFL Regular Season debut, will look for a repeat of 2021 when he was able to secure a playoff berth with a first-round finish in his only Regular Season bout.
“The final event of the 2022 PFL Regular Season promises non-stop action from the greatest athletes in the world,” said PFL CEO Peter Murray. “The stakes remain high as the PFL Playoffs approach, this is the action only the PFL can provide to MMA fans around the world.”
“PFL 6 will showcase some of the best fighters in all of MMA,” said Ray Sefo, President of Fighter Operations. “The Welterweights and Women’s Lightweight divisions will put on a spectacular event for PFL fans ahead of the Playoffs.”
The second half of the 2022 PFL Season begins June 17 on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and ESPN+ in primetime. The remaining Regular Season events will take place on June 24 and July 1. Tickets to see PFL live at OTE Arena in Atlanta are available now.
PFL is the first and only MMA league with a true sports-season format where elite fighters from around the world compete in a Regular Season, Playoffs and Championship. The four competitors in each division who earn the most points during the Regular Season, advance to the win-or-go-home Playoffs, followed by the biggest night in MMA – the PFL World Championship – with each winner going home with the $1 million prize.
