PFL women’s lightweight contender and former two-time Olympic champion Kayla Harrison is considered as one of the best women’s fighter in the world outside of UFC.
So far she has accumulated a professional record of 5-0 and last month she defeated Morgan Frier at PFL 4 via submission in the first round. So far she has finished four of her last five opponents inside the cage.
Now she has compared herself to arguably one of the best fighters in the world i.e to Khabib Nurmagomedov. Speaking to ESPN, the 29-year old said that she is the female Khabib.
“I would say I’m like a female Khabib, but better,” Harrison said.
Harrison has called out the former UFC featherweight champion Cris Cyborg and said that she is welcome to join the PFL and that it would be a fit choice for her as she wouldn’t have to struggle to make weight because of the presence of lightweight division.
