Anthony Pettis Shares Update On PFL Future
Anthony Pettis has declared his comeback.
Pettis, 34, used social media to announce that he will pursue a PFL world championship in the 2022 season.
Pettis tweeted, “Back in camp” with a video of his highlights inside the PFL’s SmartCage.
Pettis, a former WEC and UFC lightweight champion, was one of the PFL’s biggest recruits in 2020, making his much-awaited debut in the league’s 2021 season.
Unfortunately for Pettis, his first PFL season was a disappointment with losses to Clay Collard and eventual 2021 PFL lightweight champion Raush Manfio.
As an outcome, Pettis was unable to compete in the postseason.
Prior to joining the PFL, Pettis was a prominent figure in the UF, where he held the 155-pound belt from 2013 to 2015.
He was formerly the WEC’s penultimate lightweight champion.
Pettis has major wins against Benson Henderson, Donald Cerrone, Gilbert Melendez, Stephen Thompson and current UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira.
The PFL Season 2022 is set to begin in late April.
