Former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis is back in action on June 10 when he faces Alex Martinez in the headliner of PFL 4. The event airs live on ESPN2 and ESPN+ from Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City, NJ.
In his previous bout this past April Pettis (24-11) made his PFL debut, yet dropped a unanimous decision against Clay Collard. Before that he won a pair of matchups inside the UFC Octagon against Alex Morono and Donald Cerrone.
Unbeaten Martinez (8-0) fought on the same night in April, taking the win by split decision against Loik Radzhabov. Prior to that he submitted Christopher Ramirez and TKO’d Anas Siraj Mounir.
The event is billed as “Win and advance, lose and go home”.
“Pettis is the last lightweight fight of the night, so he will know exactly how many points he needs to make the playoffs when he steps into the cage,” reads the announcement sent out by the promotion. “The young Paraguayan Martinez earned a win by split decision in his PFL debut at PFL 1 and will look to carry that momentum into the lightweight matchup against Pettis.”
In the co-main event Bubba Jenkins faces off Anthony Dizy at featherweight. The rest of PFL 4 fight card features a series of featherweight and lightweight matchups. The event is the last chance for the competitors to earn playoff spot during the regular season. The full lineup can be found below.

With a win or go home scenario, this is what the PFL is all about.”
