One of the most feared women in the world of mixed martial arts – Kayla Harrison, won the PFL’s 2021 women’s lightweight tournament on Wednesday at the promotion’s season finale in Florida, US.
The two-time Olympic judo champion defeated top contender Taylor Guardado via second round submission and kept her title. Harrison’s performance gave her a second consecutive PFL tournament title and her second $1 million grand prize.
The American’s contract with the Professional Fighters League is now done and there’s only one move that’d make sense in her case. And that is to go to the UFC.
Harrison was dominant from the get-go and was the one controlling the pace and the rhythm of the bout. She was relying on her skills on the ground, as she was mauling Guardado with some nasty shots while boht ladies were on the canvas.
Her outstanding ground-and-pound was no match for her adversary as it was all over in the third round when Harrison finally managed to lock her opponent in an armbar submission and that was all she wrote.
