Clay Collard | Cooper Neill, PFL
Clay Collard is becoming a go-to main event fighter for the PFL.
The league announced Wednesday that Collard (21-9, 1 NC) will fight Alexander Martinez (9-2, 1 NC) in the lightweight main event of PFL 4 on June 17 at Overtime Elite Arena in Atlanta.
Collard got off to a successful start in the 2022 PFL season with a unanimous decision win over Jeremy Stephens at PFL 1 in a bout that will likely receive Fight of the Year recognition. He earned three points in the standings for the decision win and seeks another playoff berth after bowing out in the league semifinals last year with a loss to eventual champion Raush Manfio.
Carlos Junior was dominant at PFL 1, needing less than 30 seconds to put Delan Monte away with a D’Arce choke. The former UFC fighter is undefeated in five appearances for the PFL.
