Kayla Harrison responds to Cris Cyborg: “You can make 155, but you can’t beat me”

After her 11th consecutive professional victory, and 10th under the PFL promotional banner, Kayla Harrison is once again the talk of the MMA world, and potential opponents are speaking out as well. Harrison was victorious in the 2021 PFL semi-finals where she defeated Genah Fabian by first-round TKO and has now advanced to the Finals, which she has won each of the last two seasons.

Establishing herself as one of the most dominant fighters in all of Mixed Martial Arts, and she’s letting the world know it. Following her win over Fabian, Harrison sent a message to any and all future competitors by letting everyone know, there’s no blueprint to defeating her.

“Listen, everyone keeps saying ‘How do you solve the Kayla Harrison puzzle? How do you beat her?’ Spoiler alert: There is no freaking puzzle. I put you on your back and I mess you up. I told you, one-by-one, they’re all gonna fall. So doubt me now, I’m going to show you how great I am.”

With Harrison knocking on the door of yet another PFL women’s lightweight championship, current Bellator women’s featherweight champion, and also former UFC, Invicta, and Strikeforce champion Cris Cyborg made it known that she would be more than willing to fight Harrison at 155 pounds.

When asked about Cyborg’s comments about making 155 pounds, Kayla Harrison responded and said while there may be participation trophies, she won’t be losing any time soon.

“We know she can make 155 pounds, congratulations. Do you want a participation trophy? You can make it but you can’t beat me.”

Cyborg would respond one last time by showing off all the belts she has collected throughout her career.

The more dominant and successful Kayla Harrison continues to be in her MMA career, the more fans will call for mega-fights between her and Cyborg, as well as her and her teammate, current UFC women’s featherweight and bantamweight champion, Amanda Nunes.
