Anthony Pettis is nearly already a Professional Fighters League (PFL) millionaire without having won a season.

PFL wrapped up its 2022 regular season run in Atlanta, Ga., with PFL 6 this past weekend (July 1, 2022). With the conclusion of the event, the salaries of all fighters were revealed today (Weds., July 6, 2022) via MMA Junkie.

Unsurprisingly, two-time Lightweight champion, Kayla Harrison, comes in atop the list with $500,000 as one of the biggest earners for her efforts in a first round technical knockout of Kaitlin Young at 2022 PFL 6 (watch highlights). However, Harrison isn’t even the highest-paid Lightweight as her male counterpart, Anthony Pettis, cashed out with a $750,000 payday despite his second round body triangle submission loss to Stevie Ray at 2022 PFL 5 (watch highlights).

One of the most notable aspects of PFL is the seasonal format where fighters must win four times in a year to close things out with the anticipated reward of a title and $1 million prize. Harrison and Pettis both qualified for the upcoming playoffs as the No. 2 and No. 1 seeds, respectively. The playoff portion of the season starts Aug. 5 in New York City with the men’s Lightweight and Light Heavyweight divisions.
