Kayla Harrison Returns To The PFL Against Julia Budd On November 24th

Two-time PFL World Champion Kayla Harrison is set to make her return against the former featherweight champion, Julia Budd, on November 24th, 2023, at the 2023 PFL World Championships.

Harrison had announced her retirement from the Olympics shortly after winning her second Olympic Gold medal in Rio in 2016. The news was in the offing, given that Harrison had almost walked away when she won the gold in Judo during the London 2012 Olympics. Thereafter, she moved into MMA as she made her PFL debut in 2018. An impressive run of 15 wins out of 16 followed. However, her last fight was a loss to Larissa Pacheco at the 2022 PFL Women’s Lightweight Tournament Final. But now she will make her comeback against Budd, who has an equally impressive record of 17 victories during her career.
