The former two time champion of the PFL women’s featherweight tournament, Kayla Harrison will return to the PFL’s smartcage on November 24th. Having been out of action since her upset loss to Larissa Pacheco back in November of last year, Harrison will again make the walk.
In Washington DC, Harrison will take on the former Bellator featherweight champion and five fight PFL veteran, Julia Budd. Most recently, Budd defeated former opponent of Harrison, Martina Jindrova in June.
The PFL CEO, Peter Murray said:
“The stage is set for the 2023 PFL World Championship on Friday, November 24, live from The Anthem in Washington D.C., and includes the return of MMA superstar Kayla Harrison to the PFL SmartCage. The 2023 PFL Season will culminate with the biggest night in MMA, the 2023 PFL World Championship. Six incredible athletes will walk out of the PFL SmartCage with a PFL World Championship title and a $1 million check.”
That night has just got even bigger with the inclusion of the former Olympic gold medalist, Harrison. Prior to her loss, many were talking about her in the P4P category of greatest women’s fighters on the planet. As a result of the step back, she’ll now return with a vengeance to action in the PFL.
