Pettis loses PFL semi-final with Scotland’s Ray into dramatic $1m finale fight

ANTHONY PETTIS was beaten once again by Scotsman Stevie Ray, who is one win away from winning $1 million.

Ray faced former UFC champion Pettis in New York, just six months after beating the American in Atlanta.

And his victory in the rematch puts the lightweight in the final of the Professional Fighters League in November.

The PFL is the only MMA league format, consisting of a two-fight regular season where points are earned by method of victory.

The top four at each weight then advance to the knockout stages, which are the semi-finals and final.

Ray lost his first match of the regular season, but beat Pettis in their second fight via second-round submission, earning him five points.

That was enough to qualify him for the final four where he would need to rematch Pettis.

And Ray did the double on the MMA veteran, winning a unanimous points verdict.

Canada’s Olivier Aubin-Mercier now awaits in the final, where the $1 million cash prize and championship belt will be up for grabs.
