The 2022 PFL Playoffs began with the lightweights and light heavyweights taking center stage at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The card was headlined by a lightweight rematch between Anthony Pettis and Stevie Ray. In their first matchup during the regular season, Ray rallied to pull off the upset and submit Pettis with a rare twister submission.

The event will not only feature the four playoff matchups with plenty at stake.

Following the four playoff fights, prospects will take center stage and compete for a spot in the PFL Challenger Series.
