PFL Playoffs: Stevie Ray bests Anthony Pettis again, advances to finals

Former UFC champion Anthony Pettis was looking to make his mark in PFL after a disappointing debut season in 2021. He won his first fight of the 2022 season via a first-round submission earning him enough points to guarantee his spot in the playoffs but lost via a highlight reel finish at the hands of Stevie Ray, who he looked to avenge in the PFL Playoffs on Friday in New York City.

But it was Ray who came out on top on Friday night when he dominated the former champion everywhere it counted, proving not only was he not just a one-hit wonder but he could hang foe three rounds with Pettis and come out looking like gold.
