PFL 5: Season 2021 heavyweight champion Bruno Cappelozza takes on Matheus Scheffel, Anthony Pettis returns against Stevie Ray

PFL 5 is set for Friday June 24 in Atlanta and the event features Season 2021 heavyweight champion Bruno Cappelozza and former UFC champion Anthony Pettis.

The card will feature fighters from the heavyweight, featherweight, and lightweight divisions. In a nod to the city of Atlanta and its popular NBA Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins, the PFL invited him to watch some highlights and it was naturally, a slam-dunk.
