The headline-bout and full card announced for PFL 4 Regular Season 2022 taking place at Overtime Elite Arena in Atlanta, Georgia on Friday June 17, which makes it Saturday June 18 in Australia. Headlining the event Clay Collard goes up against Alexander Martinez at lightweight. Collard is coming off the win by unanimous decision against Jeremy Stephens, while Martinez last time out defeated Stevie Ray.
In the co-main event the 2021 PFL light heavyweight champion Antonio Carlos Jr faces the 2022 PFL Challenger Series winner Bruce Souto. Carlos Jr racked up six points with a first round submission of Delan Monte at PFL 1. He now looks to earn a PFL Playoff berth and secure the top seed in the division. Souto is looking to earn his first PFL win and slow the 2021 champion’s momentum in the process.
Also on the card PFL 2021 lightweight champion Raush Manfio goes up against “The Canadian Gangster” Olivier Aubin-Mercier in a battle of PFL 1 winners. Manfio stopped South African Don Madge late in the third round. Aubin-Mercier gritted out a close split-decision win over two-time PFL Champion Natan Schulte.
In addition, Jeremey Stephens faces Ireland’s Myles Price in a lightweight bout. Both fighters are coming off losses and will need finishes to keep their 2022 PFL Playoff hopes alive.
