Even the threat of fine and a newly established penalty for playoff points did not inspire every fighter to make weight.

The Professional Fighters League makes its return this Friday after taking all of 2020 off. PFL 1: 2021 Regular Season features the start of the season for both the featherweight and lightweight divisions. Headlining the card is a lightweight bout between former Ultimate Fighting Championship champion Anthony Pettis against Clay Collard, with the latter returning to mixed martial arts after a memorable foray into boxing. One fighter did miss weight: Mikhail Odintsov, who is now unable to earn playoff points if he wins on Saturday.

This is the first fight for Pettis (24-10) outside of the UFC. He exits the organization on a two-fight win streak, having picked up decision wins over Alex Morono and Donald Cerrone. "Showtime" will look to add another highlight to his already impressive resume, and grow his legacy inside the PFL. The 34-year-old officially stepped on the scales at 156 pounds.

This is the biggest opportunity in the career of Collard (18-8, 1 NC). “Cassius” has won four of his last five mixed martial arts bouts, with his lone defeat coming to Darrick Minner in 2018. Collard stayed active in boxing in 2020 as he went on a five-fight win streak that saw him defeat two undefeated prospects. However, his boxing stint ended with a pair of decision losses. Collard weighed 154.6 pounds for the biggest bout of his career.

The PFL 1: 2021 Regular Season prelims will stream on ESPN+ from 5:30 to 9 p.m. ET, while the two-hour main card begins at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
