PFL 2021

Friday night's Professional Fighters League season debut featured major upsets in three of the evening's featured fights including former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis' decision loss to Clay Collard in the main event. Despite going just 6-8 in his last five years with the UFC, Pettis was a heavy favorite but got himself in trouble early failing to land a cartwheel kick in the first round which left him on his back taking punishment. The second round went even worse as he was dropped twice by punches. Though Pettis did manage to score a knockdown with a roundhouse kick in the final round, it was too little too late as he lost the unanimous decision.

In the co-main event two-time PFL lightweight champion Natan Schulte surprisingly lost a decision to UFC and Bellator alum Marcin Held. But arguably the biggest upset was suffered by two-time PFL featherweight champion Lance Palmer, who came into his fight with Bubba Jenkins riding an 11 fight win streak but left on the losing end of a unanimous decision. All three losers still remain alive to make the playoffs in the PFL's season long format, though.
