After going winless in his first PFL season, Anthony Pettis will seek another shot at the lightweight title.

The former WEC and UFC lightweight champion will face Myles Price at 2022 PFL 1, which takes place April 20 at Esports Arena in Arlington, Texas and streams on ESPN+ and ESPN, promotion officials announced Tuesday.

Pettis (24-12), who parted ways with the UFC in December 2020 on a two-fight winning streak, was upset by Clay Collard in his PFL debut last April. He then faced eventual tournament winner Raush Manfio in June, but suffered another setback when he was edged out by split decision to end his season.

Ireland’s Price (11-7) will be making his PFL debut. Winner of three of his past four, the 33-year-old hasn’t competed since defeating Peter Queally by split decision at Bellator 217 in February 2019.

The 2022 PFL 1 lineup includes:

Raush Manfio vs. Don Madge
Anthony Pettis vs. Myles Price
Antonio Carlos Junior vs. Delan Monte
Clay Collard vs. Jeremy Stephens
Josh Silveira vs. Emiliano Sordi
Olivier Aubin-Mercier vs. opponent TBA
