Video interview with Lilian Garcia above
Lilian Garcia is all smiles ahead of the start of the upcoming PFL season on Wednesday and for good reason.
For starters, the promotion just signed some new talent as part of a contender series in which celebrity judges picked fighters that would earn a contract with the PFL.
Then there was a huge free agency signing with Jeremy Stephens coming over to the PFL after years of fighting in the UFC.
Finally, who could forget the resigning of Kayla Harrison.
After Harrison won another PFL lightweight title last season, the Olympic gold medalist hit free agency and met with a number of promotions and had several back-and-forth social media exchanges with Bellator featherweight champ Cris Cyborg.
Despite all the rumors, speculation and offers from other promotions, Harrison made the decision to once again sign with the PFL and will once again will be a huge favorite to win the lightweight title.
All of that will mix in with all the great fighters on the roster and coming off a great year in 2021, Garcia cannot wait to see how this season will play out. She is also looking forward to seeing fans back inside the arena after a season where fans weren’t in attendance due to the coronavirus pandemic.
