Anthony Pettis is hell-bent on adding another world title to his collection, and there will be little margin for error when he faces Brazil’s Raush Manfio at PFL 6 on Friday night.


There aren’t many fighters who know more about belt collecting than “Showtime” – by the time he was 26, the Milwaukee native had already worn the lightweight strap in the WEC and UFC.


But after swapping the Octagon for the SmartCage ahead of the Professional Fighters League’s 2021 season, 34-year-old Pettis (24-11) dropped a unanimous decision against Clay Collard on his promotional debut in April.


Given the PFL’s unique regular season format, where bonus points are awarded for a stoppage, Pettis will be eliminated before the divisional play-offs if he can’t put Manfio (12-3) away.
