After fracturing his left hand and right thumb in a lightweight playoff loss to Steven Ray at PFL 7, Anthony Pettis will be on the mend. The former lightweight champion of the UFC and WEC disclosed that he will need surgery to heal his injuries after posting photographs of his X-rays on Instagram.
On August 5, Pettis suffered a unanimous decision loss to Scottish UFC veteran Ray. Even if “Showtime” had won, he would not have been able to compete in the PFL Championship if he had lost the fight. Since joining the PFL, Pettis has gone 1-4, with his lone win coming against Myles Price on May 6 by way of first-round submission.

Only seven wins and twelve losses have been recorded by the Roufusport legend since 2015. Pettis’ future in the PFL is uncertain at this time. Ray and Olivier Aubin-Mercier will go head-to-head for the lightweight title and $1 million in an upcoming event.
