When it comes to Judo players in MMA, there is no one better right now than PFL lightweight, Kayla Harrison. The undefeated 3-0 American Top Team product is a two-time Olympic gold medallist and her dominance has so far carried over to the MMA world with great effect.
Harrison shared her thoughts on what would happen if she was ever to get on the mat with a fellow undefeated and dominant grappler in UFC lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov.
“Am I gonna beat Khabib? I mean I think I would beat him in a Judo match. For sure, 100 percent. I would beat Khabib.” she said.
Having made her debut just this past year, Harrison has won all three of her professional bouts to this point by way of finish (two TKOs, one submission). For her next venture, she’ll be participating in the PFL’s million dollar eight-woman lightweight tournament.
Nurmagomedov is notoriously managed by Ali Abdelaziz, who also happens to manage several of the sports biggest names… that includes Harrison.
