Kayla Harrison (11-0) will start her quest for a third $1 million PFL title when she takes on Marina Mokhnatkina (6-2).

And while all eyes will be on her and that quest, lurking will be former Bellator women’s featherweight champ Julia Budd (16-3), who came to the promotion as a free agent. She’ll meet Genah Fabian (4-2) to open the regular season.
Two-time season champion and $1 million winner Ray Cooper III (24-7-1) will be among the welterweights in action to kick off the season. He’ll take on fight week replacement opponent Carlos Leal (16-3), who stepped in for the unbeaten Magomed Umalatov (11-0), to start his quest for a third title. Also in action will be former UFC and WEC lightweight champ Anthony Pettis (24-12) against Myles Price (11-7) and former Bellator welterweight champ Rory MacDonald (22-8-1) against Brett Cooper (28-15). Both Pettis and MacDonald will be looking for fresh starts after a rough introduction to their PFL careers in 2021.
