Kayla Harrison, Cris Cyborg Co-Promotion Fight Could Happen ‘At The End Of This Year’

Just because Kayla Harrison resigned with PFL, doesn’t mean fights outside of the promotion are off the table.

That’s what PFL President Ray Sefo said about co-promoting with Bellator.

“Me personally, I don’t think that’s an issue,” PFL President Ray Sefo told Fight Nation.

“I know that Scott has done a few co-promotion stuff with other promotions. He’s a good friend of mine, nothing but love and respect for Scott. Anything is possible, I think it’s just a matter of the two teams sitting down at a table and making sure that it works for everybody.

“It’s very possible a superfight could happen at the end of this year but it could also happen early next year. All these things are very possible.”

After Harrison resigned with PFL, Bellator President Scott Coker said he thinks a matchup with Bellator featherweight champion is the fight to make.

“I don’t know who she’s gonna fight over there,” Coker said.

“She’s gotta fight the girls that are the dominant girls in that weight class. [Those are] Cyborg, to me, the greatest female fighter of all time, Amanda Nunes, and then Kayla. And Kayla, she’s growing, she’s doing very well, but she’s gotta fight somebody to really showcase that she has that ability to fight at that elite level.”

Bellator was one of the first other promotions to make a big effort to sign then-free agent Harrison. Her submission win over Taylor Guardado in October was her last fight of that PFL contract; she also won her second consecutive PFL championship.

Harrison spent months shopping around for a new home at Bellator and UFC. At one point, it seemed like Harrison was going to sign with Bellator, but PFL matched Bellator’s lucrative offer, which Harrison went on to sign.
