In a rematch set to take place just two months after the original fight, Anthony “Showtime” Pettis will once again face Stevie “Braveheart” Ray in the PFL 7 main event. It was an even fight in the first round. Neither Pettis or Ray had a clear advantage in terms of their feet and grappling, but the pace picked up in round 2.
About a minute into round two, Pettis switched to a defensive strategy while Stevie Ray began to put pressure on his opponent by using constant strikes.
Two minutes in, Pettis tried to take down Ray in an attempt to alter levels. Ray repelled him and took his opponents back during the scramble.
After some ground and pound, Steveie Ray got Pettis into a modified twister submission to win the fight, a move he had used recently to win a grappling bout at Polaris 18.
After a slow start to the fight, Pettis seemed less motivated and could not escape Stevie Ray’s gripping holds. With so little time between last fight and the current one, the result is unlikely to be different.
Stevie Ray to win by submission in round two

Josh Silveira, an undefeated powerhouse has won thirteen of his 13 fight wins in both amateur and professional MMA.
He is a veteran of the PFL with two wins and looks to improve his record by adding another win against Akhmedov.
Akhmedov, a slow starter, prefers to feel the ropes before looking for a finishing move. Silveira throws heavy strikes right from the start. Expect Silveira’s game plan to win this bout due to Akhmedov’s exceptional grappling skills.
