The second card of the PFL’s 2022 season, PFL 2, has been announced, featuring the men’s featherweight and heavyweight divisions.

The Professional Fighters League posted the full card on social media Tuesday, with 2021 heavyweight champ Bruno Cappelozza headlining the show against Stuart Austin.

While featherweights are also on the card, last year’s 145lb champion, Movlid Khaybulaev, will not be. Due to injury, Khaybulaev will not take part in the 2022 season, per a statement by the PFL on social media.

2022’s PFL 2 card will take place on April 28 at the ESports Stadium in Arlington, TX. In addition to Cappelozza vs. Austin, popular featherweight and DWCS alum Brendan Loughnane will face Japan’s Ryoji Kudo in the co-main event. Earlier on the card, Lance Palmer will meet Chris Wade, while UFC vets Sheymon Moraes and Boston Salmon will collide.

Salmon won his way into the regular season at featherweight as part of the PFL Challenger Series.
