Kayla Harrison Still Deciding Where To Continue Career
Kayla Harrison is an undefeated fighter with a record 12-0-0. She is a two-time PFL champion. She earned four victories in 2021 and three in the first round. Ten out of 12 battles she finished via KO or submission.
Many people thought that the next station for the champion would be the UFC stage. However, she is still thinking about the offers.
“I got the offer from the UFC. I know what it is. I think timing-wise, because of certain things that are gonna happen with Amanda [Nunes] and Julianna [Peña] etc…” Harrison said.
“Timing is kind of everything in this sport, so PFL’s definitely the front-runner. Bellator, again, we had spoken to. I don’t know the exact details of what was said between Ali and them, but I know what I had proposed, so, it doesn’t look like that’s gonna—we’ll see.”
She also talked about former No. 1 pound-for-pound female fighter of the UFC, Amanda Nunes, and said she got tons of respect for her.
“Not really, I was bummed for my teammate that night, there’s a viral video of me screaming something like, ‘F–k!’ But it was mostly ’cause I was in shock and bummed for her,” Harrison said.
“But what Amanda does with her career has no barring on my career and I respect her, I have a ton of respect for her as a fighter, as a mom, as a human being, but my journey is my journey.”
