“Surprise Surprise… The Queen is Back @KaylaH (Kayla Harrison)”

The 31-year-old has competed under the PFL banner since June 2018, representing the organization during a one-off appearance at Invicta FC 43 in November 2020 – stopping Cortney King with ground strikes.

A two-time lightweight tournament victor in back-to-back tournaments in 2019 and 2021, Harrison most recently completed her contractual obligations with the promotion back in October where she landed a second round armbar win over finalist, Taylor Guardado to win the 2021 instalment of the tournament. 

The victory followed three prior wins last year, including a trio of dominant stoppages over Genah Fabian, Cindy Dandois, and Mariana Morais. 

During her period of free agency since October, Harrison had been linked with a slew of potential moves, including a transition to the UFC ahead of a potential featherweight title outing against former American Top Team teammate, Amanda Nunes.

Harrison was also linked with a move to Bellator MMA in another featherweight title outing – this time against division queen, Cris Cyborg, however, PFL retained matching rights to Harrison, and matched an offer previously tabled by the Scott Coker-led organization. 

Harrison defeated both Bobbi Jo Dalziel, and UFC alum, Larissa Pacheco en route to the 2019 PFL lightweight tournament victory.
