Kayla Harrison

Undefeated PFL Lightweight champion and two-time Olympic Judo gold medalist, Kayla Harrison is touted as the best female MMA fighter on the planet. She has a perfect 9-0 record across Featherweight and Lightweight and she has been ceaselessly courted by other promotions. After winning the PFL Lightweight championship last July at PFL 2, Harrison became a free agent but she shocked the MMA world when she re-signed with PFL for the 2022 season.

Scott Coker, the Bellator president crystallised this disappointment when he remarked that:

With Kayla right now, I don’t know who she gonna fight over there. She’s growing, she’s doing very well. But she gonna fight somebody to really showcase that she has that ability to fight at that elite level.

Marina Mokhnatkina

Marina Mokhnatkina

Russian MMA fighter Marina Mokhnatkina will be Kayla’s opponent in the cage at Arlington. While her more illustrious opponent has stolen the spotlight, Marina will be hoping for an upset. Formerly with Bellator, the Russian has 6 wins and two losses in a fledgling MMA career.

There is a reason that Kayla’s manager Ali Abdelaziz told TMZ Sports

Everybody trying to sign Kayla. Even Walmart try to sign Kayla. The WWE been calling too, but we're interested in real fighting

Ali Abdelaziz

That reason is why the sportsbooks have given the American Olympian overwhelming odds. Bet365 has Kayla Harrisson for the win at 1.02
