Harrison and Pettis Headline Card, but in Very Different Positions

Harrison remains undefeated and has continued her trek toward becoming one of the biggest superstars in the sport.

Headlining the exciting night of fights at PFL 6 is the stirring women’s lightweight contest between 2019 PFL women’s lightweight champion Harrison and veteran MMA fighter Cindy Dandois.

Harrison is undefeated, and she’ll be looking to continue her reign of dominance over the women’s 155-pound division as she tries to move one step closer to another world title reign and million-dollar payday.

Dandois, on the other hand, has her sights set on a PFL Playoffs debut, at the expense of the former champion. That’s a tall order, but one she’s committed to achieving.

You can see the current women’s lightweight standings below.

In the co-main event, former UFC lightweight champion Pettis is set to face PFL contender Raush Manfio in a “win or go home” contest.

Following his stunning loss to Clay Collard at PFL 1, Pettis now needs to finish his opponent at PFL 6 to secure a spot in the postseason. Manfio is currently scheduled to make the playoffs, but Pettis could change that at PFL 6.

You can see the men’s lightweight standings below.

Also on the card, two-time PFL featherweight champion Lance “The Party” Palmer and Movlid Khaybulaev both find themselves in must-win situations at PFL 6 if they want to earn a spot in the PFL Playoffs.

Palmer has been one of the PFL’s brightest stars over the last two years, but now he has his back up against the wall in a must-win showdown.

Additionally, Palmer told the media at the PFL 6 press conference earlier this week that this could be his final season in the PFL, so the American is likely in desperate need of a big win so he can enter free agency on an up note.
