The PFL regular reason kicks off this week with 2022 PFL 1, which features lightweights and light heavyweights in action for the first time this year.
Here’s how to watch PFL 1, with a complete lineup and breakdown by division.
Broadcast and streaming info
PFL 1 takes place at Esports Arena in Arlington, Texas.
The prelims stream on ESPN+ at 5:30 p.m. ET, with the main card also streaming on ESPN+ and airing on ESPN at 9 p.m. ET.
Eight of 10 lightweight fighters will be in action at PFL 1, including defending champion Raush Manfio, who went on an improbable run to claim last year’s title and $1 million grand prize. Manfio opens up against two-fight UFC veteran Don Madge, who made his promotional debut in a one-off bout last year. In the night’s main event, former UFC standout Jeremy Stephens will make his promotional debut against Clay Collard, who lost to Manfio in last year’s semifinals.
Light heavyweight action will feature all 10 regular-season fighters, highlighted by returning champion Antonio Carlos Jr., who meets Delan Monte in his first fight of 2022. Coming off a three-fight losing streak that led to his UFC release, “Shoeface” rebounded in the PFL last year by going 3-0 with one no contest, including a submission of Marthin Hamlet in the finals. Hamlet, who went 2-2 last season, will open his 2022 campaign against Teodoras Aukštuolis.
