Following an action-packed first three events, the Professional Fighters League 2021 Regular Season resumes with PFL 4, showcasing the league’s featherweight and lightweight fighters as they look to secure a spot in the 2021 PFL Playoffs. The event will take place live from the PFL Regular Season Bubble at the Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City, NJ.
Headlining the nine-fight card is the debut of three-division champion and number one women’s pound-for-pound boxer Claressa Shields, who makes her long-awaited MMA debut against dangerous Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu brown belt Brittney Elkin.
In the co-main event, Clay Collard returns after his stunning decision win against Anthony “Showtime” Pettis at PFL 1. Collard will try to secure a spot in the Playoffs against Joilton Lutterbach, who needs a stoppage to keep his Playoff dreams alive.
Also on the card, top featherweight contender Bubba Jenkins will look to follow up his win over 2019 PFL Featherweight Champion Lance Palmer with another victory, this time against Bobby Moffett, who will be entering the PFL cage for the first time.
