The Professional Fighters League (PFL) held the weigh-ins for its sixth and final regular-season event of the 2021 season Thursday, June 24. The official pre-fight check took place at Ocean Casino in Atlantic City, N.J.
PFL 6, 2021 features the men’s heavyweight and women’s lightweight divisions — plus special featured bouts at both men’s featherweight and lightweight — as competitors make one final push to qualify for the biggest night in MMA: The 2021 PFL Championship.
Atop the main card on ESPN2 is a women’s lightweight showdown between undefeated two-time Olympic gold medalist and 2019 PFL Women’s Lightweight Champion Kayla Harrison and UFC, Bellator, and Invicta FC veteran Cindy Dandois. Harrison, fresh off a first-round TKO in her first-round matchup of 2021, looks to keep that momentum rolling and move to 10-0 as a professional, while Dandois aims to pull off one of the biggest upsets of the year.
The ESPN2 card also features some can’t-miss action in the men’s lightweight and featherweight divisions, as early season favorites Anthony Pettis and Lance Palmer each find themselves in finish-or-go-home situations.
Pettis dropped his PFL debut to Clay Collard, giving him zero points in the Lightweight standings as he heads into his bout against Raush Manfio Friday night in Atlantic City. Now, Pettis needs to win — and needs to finish Manfio — if he wants to punch his ticket to the PFL Playoffs.
Palmer, the two-time PFL Featherweight Champion, faces the same challenge as Pettis. After losing to Bubba Jenkins to open his 2021 run, Palmer now must overcome the undefeated Movlid Khaybulaev if he wants to three-peat as 145-pound king.
The 12-fight card kicks off Friday night, June 25, with action airing live on ESPN+ beginning at 6 p.m. ET. The remainder of the card will shift to ESPN2 at 10 p.m. ET. For additional broadcast details, click here.
