Lance Palmer and Natan Schulte will have some new blood standing in their way in their quest to three-peat as champions in Professional Fighters League.

The organization on Tuesday announced the full rosters for the featherweight and lightweight divisions for the upcoming 2021 season. Palmer is a two-time champion at 145 pounds, while Schulte has won back-to-back crowns at 155 pounds. The winner of each weight class, of course, earns a $1 million prize at the end of the season.

Some of the more notable newcomers at featherweight include former Bellator MMA competitor Bubba Jenkins and Dana White’s Contender Series alum Brendan Loughnane. Meanwhile, high-profile UFC signee Anthony Pettis heads up the field at lightweight, joining the likes of Clay Collard and Olivier Aubin-Mercier.

“We’re excited to officially unveil the first two rosters for the 2021 season,” said PFL CEO Peter Murray. “Our fighter roster is top-tier, and we are looking forward to having fighters from around the world be a part of our league and season. PFL is a fighter-first organization and we are proud to showcase the depth and breadth of our rosters.”

The 2021 PFL season begins on April 23 with an event featuring the aforementioned divisions airing at 9 p.m ET on ESPN2 and 6 p.m. ET on ESPN+. Ensuing regular season events are scheduled for April 29, May 6, June 10, June 17 and June 25.
