Multiple time PFL (Professional Fighters League) lightweight tournament victor, Kayla Harrison has signed a multi-fight deal to make a spectacular move to the Octagon in April – making a promotional debut against former bantamweight champion, Holly Holm at UFC 300 – in her first walk at the 135 pound limit to boot.
Harrison, who is a two-time PFL tournament lightweight winner, was most recently seen at PFL 10, back in November last year, in Washington. He won a unanimous decision over Aspen Ladd, former UFC bantamweight competitor.
Returning to the winner’s enclosure, Harrison, a two-time Olympic gold medalist in Judo, had dropped her first professional loss in the form of a judging defeat to Brazilian champion and another Octagon alum, Larissa Pacheco the November prior.
As for Holm, the Albuquerque striking expert has been sidelined since her initial ninja choke submission loss to recent UFC 297 co-headliner, Mayra Bueno Silva, was overtuned to an official ‘No Contest’ following their July clash.
