Pic: Anthony Pettis suffers two broken hands in loss to Stevie Ray | PFL Playoffs 1

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight king Anthony Pettis suffered more than just a unanimous decision loss to Stevie Ray last night (Friday August 5, 2022) at the PFL Playoffs 1 since the interior of the Hulu Theater in New York’s Madison Square Garden. .

Pettis, who lost to Ray via modified body triangle just six weeks ago (see HERE), was hoping to get back into the win column and avenge his previous loss to “Braveheart” in a main event rematch. ‘Showtime’ was also hoping to advance to the next round of the 2022 PFL Playoffs and get closer to a $1 million prize.

Unfortunately for Pettis, Ray seemed to have his number back on Friday night. The Scottish fighter took care of business winning two out of three rounds and walking away with the decision win. Ray not only knocked Pettis out of the PFL Playoffs, he left the former UFC champ broken (literally).

After the fight, Pettis took to social media to share a photo of two broken hands suffered in his rematch against Ray. It’s unclear when Pettis may have sustained the injuries, but it likely played a role in his performance. Check it out below:

Pettis, 35, is just 1-4 as a member of the PFL since joining the promotion in 2021. ‘Showtime’ appears to be a shell of himself after winning the lightweight title from the UFC in 2013, but hopefully he heals from that loss to Ray and gets back on the horse again. After all, Pettis is still extremely gifted and he remains one of the most recognizable names in the sport today.
