Currently expected to return to compete for the PFL in 2022 are defending champions Kayla Harrison, Ray Cooper III. Harrison, a two-time lightweight tournament winner, was recently the subject of a free agency bidding war before it was announced that the PFL re-signed her on a multi-year contract.

New fighters are expected to be added to the roster this season off of the PFL’s ongoing Challenger Series events.
