The PFL has announced the most dangerous fight card ever for PFL 5, to be held on Friday, June 24 at Atlanta, Georgia's Overtime Elite Arena. In the main event, Bruno Cappelozza, the 2021 heavyweight champion, and PFL's most feared fighter, is heading for the PFL's fifth regular season card in a fight against Matheus Scheffel.


Promotion announces pairs for regular season cards, consisting mostly of heavyweight and featherweight bouts


Returning champion CaPpellozZa ended Stuart Austin's night in April with a first-round knockout for six points, putting him in the best position to make it to the playoffs.


Scheffel is still looking for its first PFL victory. He lost his promotional debut in April, losing to Ante Delija in the second round.


In the co-main event, former UFC Lightweight champion Anthony Pettis is back in action after his victory over Myles Price in PFL 3, which earned him six points, and puts him at the top of the division standings. "Showtime" competes with Scotland's Stevie Ray, who needs an initial stoppage to bank enough points to secure a place in the playoffs.


The Preliminary card will launch the action with seven contests: Anti Delija vs. Stuart Austin Heavyweight; Dennis Goltsov vs. Sam Kei in Heavyweight, Ali Isaec vs Jamelle Jones in heavyweight, Bubba Jenkins vs Saba Bolghi in Featherweight, Lance Palmer vs. Sheymon Morraes in Featherweight, Brendan Loughnane vs. Boston Salmon at featherweight and Alejandro Flores vs. Ryoji Kudo at featherweight.


Peter Murray, CEO of PFL, said: "From the OTE Arena in Atlanta to the PFL Playoffs live on the road. "PFL's unique season format makes winning every fight a must and provides the best MMA action to millions of fans around the world."
