Harrison Gets New Opponent Before PFL 7
After concerns over Genah Fabian’s weight-cut became serious, the PFL decided to pull her from the lightweight semifinals against Kayla Harrison.
The fight, which headlines PFL 7 on October 11th from the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada, will now see the two-time Olympic Gold Medalist face off against Bobbi-Jo Dalziel, who was initially eliminated from playoff contention due to not earning enough points to make the top four.
Dalziel actually defeated Fabian in her first fight of the PFL season, but fell to semifinalist Larissa Pacheco in July via a first-round submission.
The winner of Dalziel and Harrison will face off against the winner of Pacheco’s fight against former Strikeforce champion and tournament favorite Sarah Kaufman on December 31st for the PFL’s Championship finals at the Hulu Theater.
