Kayla Harrison keeps on rolling.
A former Olympic gold medalist, Harrison (11-0) remained undefeated with another dominant victory for PFL, this time over Genah Fabian (4-2) in the 2021 playoffs.
The dominant win captured the attention of Bellator women’s featherweight champion and former UFC women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg. Shortly after Harrison’s ground-and-pound stoppage, Cyborg (24-2 MMA, 3-0 BMMA) expressed interest in a matchup.
When informed of Cyborg’s tease of the pairing during the PFL post-fight news conference, Harrison said quite bluntly, “You can’t beat me.”
It’s clear Harrison is one of the best pound-for-pound female fighters in the sport, but given the competition she’s faced thus far, is it fair to think she could hang with the most dominant names in the sport like Cyborg, or her own teammate, Amanda Nunes (21-4 MMA, 14-4 UFC)? Our “Spinning Back Clique” panel of Matthew Wells, Nolan King, and George Garcia weighed in with host John Morgan.
