PFL Announces Venue for the upcoming Trio of Atlanta Events


The PFL owns a site for the second half the 2022 seasons.

The league announced Thursday via press release that its previously scheduled June 17, June 24, and July 1 events in Atlanta will take place at Overtime Elite Arena. The SmartCage will be making the historic trip to Georgia’s capital for the first time.

Events will air live on ESPN and the ESPN+ streaming service.

“After an exciting start to the 2022 Regular Season, we are excited to announce that three events will be held at Overtime Elite Arena in Atlanta by the Professional Fighters League on June 17, 24 July 1,” CEO Peter Murray stated in the release. “Atlanta is a leading sport, culture, and entertainment hub and we’re looking forward to working with a disruptive partner like OTE to bring the best MMA fighters in the world to the city.”

The 2022 PFL season kicked off on April 20 at Esports Stadium Arlington in Arlington, Texas, with two more events set to take place at that venue on Thursday night and on May 6. The events mark the first set of fights for the league’s heavyweight, light heavyweight, welterweight, men’s lightweight, women’s lightweight, and featherweight rosters.

The 2022 Playoff dates and venues are yet to be established.
