Anthony Pettis vs. Stevie Ray Live Weighing Results
PFL 7: Anthony Pettis vs. Stevie Ray 2 weigh-in results.
The 2022 PFL Playoffs begin Friday, August 5 at the Hulu Theater in Madison Square Garden, New York, NY. The first playoffs will be the lightweights and light heavyweights. The top four fighters in each weight class will go head-to-head to determine who will be the two finalists for their respective 2022 championships and $1 million prize.
Headlining the map are lightweights Anthony Pettis and Stevie Ray, who face off in a replay of their June 24 bout. The fight saw Ray take a rare, modified twister over Pettis in the second round. Pettis and Ray are #1 and #4, earning 6 and 5 points, respectively. Both enter the playoffs after winning 1-1 in the season, with Pettis defeating Myles Price in the first round triangle and Ray losing to fellow semifinalist Alexander Martinez via unanimous decision.
The other easy playoff fight will be Olivier Aubin-Mercier taking on Alexander Martinez. The Nos. 2 and 3 went 2-0 up in the regular season, with both scoring two six-point decisions. Aubin-Mercier defeated two-time PFL Lightweight Champion Nate Schulte by spilled decision and last year’s Champion Rauh Manfio by unanimous decision. Martinez defeated Ray via unanimous decision and Clay Collard by split decision.
Robert Wilkinson takes on Delan Monte in one of two light heavyweight playoff fights. Wilkinson, the No. 1 light heavyweight seed, had an impressive regular season, scoring 11 points with second and first round TKOs against Bruce Souto and Viktor Pesta and is the favorite to win the title. His opponent Monte went 1-1 in the regular season, losing to last year’s Light Heavyweight Champion Antonio Carlos Jr. in the first round and then beating 2019 Champion Emiliano Sordi by TKO in the first round, to get six points.
In the other light heavyweight fight, Omari Akhmedov takes on Josh Silveira. Achmedov had a strong season with a 2-0 record. He defeated Viktor Pesta by KO in the first round and Teodoras Aukstuolis by arm triangle in the second round to win 11 points and the No. 2 seed. His opponent Silveira replaces prospective semi-finalist Antonio Carlos Jr., who withdrew from the tournament last month with an ACL injury. The son of acclaimed MMA coach Conan Silveira, Silveira entered the regular season late due to his own injury and fought only once, scoring six points by defeating Martin Hamlet by TKO in the first round.
