A welterweight division fight has been added to the upcoming PFL 6 card according to Marcel Dorff of MMA DNA as Rick Story faces Carlton Minus.
Story (20-9-0) is undefeated thus far in the first season of the PFL, defeating Yuri Villefort by unanimous decision at PFL 3. Story spent over seven years competing in the UFC, picking up notable wins over Brian Foster, Johny Hendricks, Thiago Alves, Gunnar Nelson and Tarec Saffiedine. Story has suffered a total of nine losses as a professional MMA fighter and seven of those defeats came by way of decision.
Minus (9-0-0) is going to be making his PFL debut, stepping in for Paul Bradley, who pulled out of a bout against Story for unknown reasons.

Minus is competing outside of the AFC banner for the first time in two years, with the only other promotion he competed in being AK Entertainment.
