Julia Budd Replaced By Kaitlin Young At PFL 6 After Suffering Injury
Former Bellator titleholder Julia Budd (16-4) has been forced to withdraw from the 2022 PFL 6 headliner against two-time PFL women’s lightweight champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist Kayla Harrison (13-0) after suffering an injury.
She will be replaced by veteran fighter Kaitlin Young (12-12-1). The fight will take place on July 1 at Overtime Elite Arena in Atlanta.
Harrison is currently in pursuit of her third consecutive PFL season title. She started her 2022 campaign in May with a unanimous decision win over Marina Mokhnatkina at 2022 PFL 3.
Young winning would be a huge upset, as she has not competed since last October where she lost to Budd.

- Kayla Harrison vs. Kaitlin Young
