If you're a fan of Mixed Martial Arts, and you haven't watched PFL, you're missing out.

Whereas the UFC couples the boxing model in terms of how events are run, PFL takes an approach that's more similar to other professional sports leagues. There's a regular season, a post-season, and a championship in PFL, with fighters earning points in several different ways.

Friday night will be the fourth PFL event of the 2022 season. The card will feature lightweights and light heavyweights.

Here are the consensus odds for the entire Friday night card.

Clay Collard vs. Alexander Martinez Prediction

The main event of PFL 4 features a lightweight bout between Clay Collard and Alexander Martinez.

Collard is 3-1 in his PFL career, but more important, 1-0 in the 2022 season, defeating Jeremy Stephens via unanimous decision in this year's opening card. If you recognize his name, it's because he once fought in the UFC, going 1-3 before moving on to other organizations.

With that being said, I'm going to back the underdog, Alexander Martinez in this one. He also won his first fight of the season, defeating Steven Ray via unanimous decision. The 28-year old Paraguayan has been getting better and better in recent fights, and now he's up for one of the biggest challenges of his career.

If he can get his ground game going, he might be able to submit Collard, who has three submission losses in his career. Four of Martinez' nine professional wins have come via sub.

Prediction: Alex Martinez +145
