This year’s PFL 3 card has been officially announced, with two of the Professional Fighters League’s biggest stars topping the bill.

PFL 3, 2022 edition is set to be headlined by Kayla Harrison (12-0), unquestionably the promotion’s biggest star. Having recently re-signed with the league after a lengthy free agency period, Harrison has been paired up with Marina Mokhnatkina (6-2).

League officials announced the news in a press release on Tuesday. For Harrison, it will be the first step along her journey to become a three-time PFL champion. Mokhnatkina, a Bellator MMA veteran who went 1-1 in that promotion, made her PFL debut last year — and will be a heavy underdog in the women’s lightweight fight.

The co-main event for PFL 3 will feature another two-time champ, Ray Cooper III (24-7-1). Winner of the welterweight tournament in 2019 and 2021, he’ll kick off the 2022 season against undefeated Russian Magomed Umalatov (11-0).

Two other big names will round out the PFL 3 2022 main card. Anthony Pettis (24-12) is expected to feature, taking on Myles Price (11-7) — a lightweight fight originally announced for PFL 1, only to be pushed back several weeks. And Rory MacDonald (22-8-1), the former Bellator MMA welterweight champ, will return, looking for redemption after coming up short last season. “The Red King” is set to take on Brett Cooper (28-15).

This year’s PFL 3 card is expected to take place on Friday, May 6, 2022 at the Esports Stadium Arlington in Arlington, Texas. The full card as announced on Tuesday can be found below.
